In preparation of the 2nd Brussels VRhackathon, EUVR asbl organizes through Be.VR a training for VR tech newbies. The goal here is to provide adequate directions in order to create a prototype that would be technically & conceptually viable. The whole VR training is tackling now the VR creative (team) side (3 workshops in October + a bonus MiniJam in order to consolidate all learnings).

Attendance will be extended this time to 15-20 seats.
Please register via EventBrite (first bought, first in). Registering through Meetup (even if welcome) only won’t provide you with a seat.

"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.""
