Bondi Disruptors: Business Value From VR and AR
Moving beyond TVs and desktop computers, laptops and tablets and the rise of the smartphone, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) are emerging as not only the future, but also the present of how people interact with information, entertainment, organisations and buying.
Businesses small and large are already using these new tools to engage with customers, build relationships, develop capabilities and sell more.
Ross Dawson will share insights into the state of AR and VR today and how local companies can use these tools to grow,. He will also discuss how we can expect these technologies to develop in coming years, who the winners might be, and how companies can position themselves today to succeed in that world.
Paul Martin will look at the present and future of MR for businesses, how they will need to create their mixed-reality personas in the coming years, the similarities to classic company websites for the current Internet, the challenges companies will face, and the benefits they will discover. He will show how businesses will be able to build Mixed Reality quickly, cheaply and easily without requiring a developer.
Ross Dawson is CEO and Chief Futurist of Bondi-based R7 Group, which includes marketing and innovation agency and VR/ AR specialist firm MultiDimensionCorp, He has delivered keynotes and executive workshops in 29 countries across 6 continents, and appears regularly in the media, including CNN, Bloomberg TV, SkyNews, ABC TV, Today and Sunrise shows, New York Times, The Guardian and many others
Paul Martin is Founder and CEO of tagSpace, a tech start-up that has created a mobile mixed-reality platform called tagStorm which allows users to interact with virtual computer graphics objects intermingled with the real world. He has been building interactive visual technologies, video games, technology teams.
