New & Digital Media Meetup
Tuesday October 18, 2016 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm
It's that time again; REAP is hosting our next New & Digital Media Meet-up! Our New and Digital Media Meet-up will be held on or around the 15th of every month at the Felt Lab, and as always, will feature a new technology each time.
In this next meet-up, we will be exploring Augmented Reality technologies like those used in Pokemon Go. We'll be playing with two AR Creation Studios - Layar and Aurasma. Both offer free trials, and during our meet-up we will be playing with these to create business cards, flyers, posters, and other print assets.
Please note this is a BYOD event (bring your own device).
Here's how the Meet-up works:
Every month we will pick a new technology to get hands-on with and explore. This can be anything from software for data visualization, sound visualization, game development, or design, to programming languages and environments like Processing or NodeJS, to hardware like the Microsoft Kinect, Arduino, and many more. We will always try to choose a free software or technology already available in the lab, so you don't have to worry about costs associated with the meet up.
The goal is to have fun with other technologists while developing skills in a playful, experimental way. Hopefully by the end of each meet up you will either have something you can put in your portfolio, or a project you may want to develop further later. Either way, it's all about having fun and learning something new.
