LHB Hosted IEEE - VR/AR Presented

Tuesday evening, this week, I had the opportunity to present to the the "Arrowhead Section" of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). We had a great turnout, as you can see in the images below. Several students also attended, which was great.

I think everyone had a great time and was impressed with the technology. Only one person had tried the HTC Vive before, but not wirelessly. So, between the Vive and the Microsoft Hololens, everyone was able to try something new!

Nick Johnson, from LHB, is the current Chair and helped organize the event. We had a few LHB electrical staff in attendance.

The presentation started in our training center (we call it Studio 4). I was able to do a dry run of...
my presentation I will be giving next week at the NVIDIA GTC conference - I wrote about that here; NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference 2018.

After the presentation, we moved to our large collaboration space, on the same floor, and everyone got a hands-on experience!

Although this is overkill for what we were doing here... the image below shows the NVIDIA configuration used for this demo; two Quadro GP100s (TCC mode) and a P2000 (WDDM mode).

I also have an amazing computer from Dell that we are testing... more on this in the near future!
