We're super stoked to present the latest in VR / AR and Mixed Reality on Wed, May 24th for a first look at the latest technologies shaping our future. We'd love to see you!

Learn how to think in #3D with Altar Virtual's collaborative VR tool for productivity. Kickbox your way into shape and to the beat of your own music with Soundboxing VR, see mixed reality story telling with Aconite, and kick the smoking habit for good with MindCotine (currently in Alpha). Also in the line-up, Happinss helps you manage your stress with VR meditation and Auteurist, by Axum Graphics is democratizing VR content creation for filmmakers!

You'll have an opportunity to get hands-on with the latest equipment. We'll have holodecks equipped with HTC and Oculus headsets so you can try out a virtual experience and see what's coming in this new frontier of entertainment, edu-tainment, therapy and more.

Demos: Altar Virtual, Axum Graphics, Soundboxing VR, Aconite, MindCotine, and Happinss --- and we'll open the floor for your new tech stories, too!

Complimentary cocktails, and amazing conversations await.  (Tacos are pending a sponsor -- would your company like to discuss?)

Avery Bedows, CEO
Altar’s mission is to build Augmented Memory with AR/VR. Our first step towards that goal is a product called Altar Show: a VR collaboration tool for brainstorming, note-taking, and organization that leverages 3D space to help you express and represent ideas more naturally than any existing tool or platform. Show is like Evernote meets Skype meets Omnigraffle meets VR.


Micah Morgan, Chief Creative Officer

Auteurist, by Axum Graphics is a content creation tool which opens up computer animation and VR film making to a whole new class of users. Auteurist allows film makers to produce photo-realistic movies with a click of a button. We allow film-makers and storytellers, who may have never used a 3D content creation tool before, to realize their vision.


Eric Florenzano, Founder
Soundboxing is a VR music video kickboxing game where you create the beats! You can either punch to the music and compete to beat the best, or record your own challenge for others to beat—all set to your favorite music in a cool outdoor environment.

Aconite is a mixed reality storytelling platform. We define a mixed reality story as a physical/digital experience that sits at the intersection of adventure, narrative and game. We're building a platform for consuming, and a toolkit for creating, experiences of this type at scale.
