Virtual Reality for the Masses

Datum: 8 december 2016 Geschreven door: In:

As you might have noticed the VR & AR campaign of the Albert Heijn has introduced VR & AR to the masses. This is really great because slowly VR is becoming more mainstream and that will result in more VR & AR content, making the world a more magical place! 

After a very successful VR010 meetup we have asked Little Chicken to join the VR020 meetup and (amongst other VR things) to repeat their talk about how they created the VR/AR app for the Albert-Heijn. From games and apps to virtual reality, Little Chicken delivers unique and useful experiences for their clients and end users.


17.00 – 18.00 Start meetup

18.00 – 19.00 Presentation Little Chicken

19.00 – 20.00 Share VR Demo’s & Knowledge with each other 


The VR020 meetup will organise meetups at VRBASE in 2017. VRBASE is a curated incubator space in Amsterdam, Berlin and Paris (opening soon). The focus of VRBASE is on helping virtual- and augmented reality startups and freelancers grow by providing them with a wide range of resources and making them part of a problem-solving community. Looking for a cool VR workspace? Contact them for more info:

Food & Drinks

The good news is that VRBase is sponsoring beers at the meetup, J ! However there will not be any food during the meetup. On and around the marineterrein there are many places where you can grab a bite to eat (before or after the meetup). Think of ‘Hannekes Boom’, ‘Mediamatic’ , Pension Homeland etc. .

"To begin with, Virtual Reality is a part of computer science and it represents a new approach to computer science. Instead of treating the computer as a box that's out there that is supposed to accomplish something, you put a human being in the center and say, "Let's look at the human being closely. Let's see how people perceive the world or how they act. Let's design a computer to fit very closely around them, like a glove, you might say. Let's match up the technology to exactly what people are good at.""
