Imagine a world in which Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Augmented Virtuality, Multi-Modal VR, and Robots are part of the average person's day?

Research on emerging technologies offer tantalizing glimpses into what that world might be like. In the Human Interface Technology (HIT) Lab NZ at the University of Canterbury, our researchers have a unique perspective on those emerging technologies.
Come and see a brief overview of the things we're working with today, and hear some predictions about the future from the people doing the work.

The presentation will be followed by an opportunity for networking over light refreshments.

About The Speaker: Greg Baker

After completing a PhD in the HIT Lab in 2014, Greg assumed the role of IT manager, and has been there ever since. He lives in fear that the boss will realize how much fun the job is, stop his salary, and start making him pay to work there.
