The Mixed Reality research team in Walton Institute, South East Technological University (SETU), will provide an open demonstration workshop at Dungarvan Enterprise Centre on 21 June 2023. Attendees will gain an insight into the diverse commercial applications and how such technologies can be utilised in their business, while having the opportunity to demo state-of-the-art virtual and augmented reality equipment.

The workshop will be informal allowing attendees to freely chat to technical experts in this space, try various mixed reality equipment and experience its broad potential first hand.

Walton Institute hosts a mixed reality lab offering an all-in-one space for exploring the use of interactive technologies and tools, right here in Waterford. This enables companies to not only become familiar with the technology but also, with the aid of Walton Institute’s team of mixed reality experts, to investigate how these technologies and concepts may be used to benefit their business and research use cases. 

Speaking about the benefits of this workshop, Prof Bill O’Gorman, Chairperson, Dungarvan Enterprise Centre, said “Most people think of Virtual Reality (VR) or Mixed Reality (MR) devices as merely toys for young people, special effects for science fiction movies or something that is imaginary and not relevant to businesses.  However, the fact is that mixed reality are actual and, when used in the right way, can bring enormous benefits to businesses. They are applicable in finance, retail, healthcare, tourism, hospitality, manufacturing, utilities, education, and so on. So don’t block your organisation’s future by ignoring the present. Come along to the workshop and see how VR and MR can benefit your business and organisation.”

The event is free, and people are welcome to pop in to Dungarvan Enterprise Centre at any time between 10:30 and 13:00. If you are interested in investigating the use of mixed reality within your organisation, the Enterprise Ireland Technology Gateway team in Walton Institute will be on hand to guide you through funding options available.

The workshop is kindly sponsored by Dungarvan Enterprise Centre and Dungarvan Chamber of Commerce. Register your attendance on Eventbrite
