Virtual, Augmented and Immersive Reality technologies are going to shape our future in the next 5-10 years. Entertainment, health, jobs: everything will be disrupted by new layers of reality in front of our eyes. Now, it’s time to bring the future to innovators and let them generate ideas.
On November 4th 2016 Reply organizes the 8th edition of Student Tech Clash, a European student live challenge, which offers students the opportunity to experiment with VR tech and work for one day on generating innovative solutions putting Virtual, Augmented and Immersive Reality technologies into practice.
The event will be open to all students from Queen Mary University in London, FAU Erlangen in Nuremberg, Politecnico in Milan and Politecnico in Turin; they will be invited to immerse themselves in a new reality, by shaping new applications, businesses and visions for the future with VR technologies.
Students will get in touch with Virtual Reality state of the art scenario and devices like Microsoft Hololens, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and many more, in order to work on a feasible, innovative, technologically relevant business ideas. A group of Reply Partners and mentors will support them during the day, providing technical and strategic support to the team groups.
In each country one team group will get the chance to win the local round, and the four finalists will be evaluated by an exclusive jury composed by Filippo Rizzante, CTO at Reply, Marco Cusinato, Executive Partner, other Reply Partners and University Professors, that will award the best European project and University.
During the day students will meet in livestreaming and will battle against each other with a social challenge: live social interaction will be taken in consideration by the counters and students will get extra points for their University.
The event aims to give all students the chance to play for one day with future relevant contents and technologies, giving them a spotlight to show their creativity, by working in teams and learning from each other in an engaging environment.
