Augmented Reality Application Development

NxtGen Augmented RealityWorkshop Overview:

This workshop provides participants with a simple introduction to Augmented Reality Application Development. This workshop will focus on Augmented Reality (AR) (not Virtual Reality) and will use Microsoft’s Hololens platform, the only hands free standalone AR device, and Unity3D. You will learn basic concepts about how AR objects work in space, how to interact with AR objects, and even deploy your own prototype AR application.

Who Should Attend:

This NxtGen Tech course is open to any high school sophomore, junior or senior (and technically advanced incoming freshmen with IIT Staff approval). No special prerequisite knowledge is required, however, it is recommended that students have some technical knowledge. Students practice hands-on basics and continue into advanced techniques, while building small project-based websites and web applications.
