📅 RSVP: Friday Coffee Meetup–The Future of Augmented Reality | Innovate Pasadena

RSVPed Attending Friday Coffee Meetup: The Future of Augmented Reality

Friday, September 21, 2018 from 8:15 AM to 9:30 AM

Until recently, augmented reality has been the stuff of science fiction. In 1956, Philip K. Dick’s “The Minority Report” predicted the coming of AR as literally being able to have information at your fingertips. Like Dick’s AR display, the 1977 hologram image of Princess Leia in Star Wars is now a reality. That said, the first appearance of AR actually goes back to 1862 and the concept of Pepper’s Ghost, an illusion effect made for amusement parks and museums. In the early 1950’s, Pepper’s Ghost was used in the early development of the teleprompter.
