1871 Hosting First VR/AR Chicago MeetUp of 2019 on Wednesday, January 16th

It is only natural for the best to find each other. So when the top incubator in the world, 1871, partnered with Chicago’s leading immersive technology MeetUp, the VR/AR Chicago, it was kismet.

The partnership will officially begin next Wednesday, January 16th, with the topic “Why XR Technology is #TheNextEvolution in Communication” at 1871 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

“Virtual reality, augmented reality, and extended reality technologies are changing the way that organizations operate in countless industries,” said 1871 CEO Betsy Ziegler. “We’re excited to partner with BundlAR to host the VR/AR Chicago Meetup. This series of thoughtful discussions will benefit our community of entrepreneurs, leaders, and startups by highlighting the many possibilities of these innovative and immersive platforms.”

BundlAR CTO Matt Wren founded and hosts the VR/AR Chicago MeetUp, doubling as the VR/AR Association Chicago Chapter President, as well. With his standing in the XR community, the VR/AR Chicago MeetUp delivers the most unique and immersive monthly event.

Topic Details: With spatial computing and XR technology, we’re on the verge of the next evolution in human communication, where the rectangular screens people have been staring at for the last 40 years are being transformed. Augmented Reality is already starting to place digital information in the context of the physical world that surrounds us. Virtual Reality allows people to be fully immersed into graphic environments. We can now control digital objects by speaking, gesturing, or even reaching out and grabbing just like we would with physical objects. Come learn about where immersive technology is now and where it’s headed through 2019 and beyond.

SLU-Madrid’s AR Enhanced Admit Packet Wins Over Prospective Students

Deciding on which university a high school student wants to attend is the biggest decision most of them have made up to that point in their lives. Saint Louis University’s Madrid Campus wanted to separate themselves from other colleges by enhancing their admission packet to prospective students with augmented reality (AR).

SLU-Madrid was able to express that they are not only an international option, but an innovative university that is able to provide its students with unique opportunities and experiences.

“A few students who participated in the videos were in our office when we tested and they were amazed,” said Heidi Buffington, Director of Admissions at SLU-Madrid. “We started taking a look at the functionality of the app and [were] excited! It works quickly and the quality is great.” (SLU-Madrid chose to use BUNDLAR’s PublishReality app as an introduction to AR.)

The addition of AR for SLU-Madrid was practical, using this cutting-edge technology correctly. Each video had a purpose. Each digital info bubble linked to critical webpages like how to apply for a visa or register for student housing. AR wasn’t done to be done, but with a coordinated vision and plan.

The admit packet also introduced AR intelligently to it readers. On the cover is an AR indicator or symbol and a brief message letting prospective students know it has been AR enhanced. Then the reader is given specific instruction on how to download the app and experience each AR enhanced page. The page itself is also enhanced with a unique welcome message from the Academic Dean.
