The Center for Simulations & Virtual Environments Research (UCSIM) was delighted to participate in the TEDxCincinnati “Innovation Alley” on July 9, 2015 at the Cincinnati Mason Center downtown. The sold-out event brought together a vibrant Cincinnati community of explorers, artists, and technologists for an evening of sharing and discovery.
Cincinnati is a thriving hub for many disciplines — technology, entertainment, design, science, humanities, business, and development. It is a community of remarkable individuals who contribute to “Ideas Worth Spreading.” In the spirit of Ideas Worth Spreading, TEDxCincinnati brings people together to share a TED-like experience. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized, where the x = independently organized TED events. A TEDxCincinnati Main Stage event features TED talk videos, live speakers and performers to spark deep discussion and connection.
UCSIM at Innovation Alley
The UCSIM booth at the TEDxCincinnati Innovation Alley demonstrated several immersive technologies, including augmented reality with Google Glass, virtual reality with the Oculus Rift, and gesture controls with Leap Motion.
With great thanks to the TEDxCincinnati organizers, we look forward to participating again next year!
