The Emerging Media Lab (EML) is proud to present the annual Summer Showcase on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 from 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. UBC students, staff and faculty will have the opportunity to try flagship and prototype EML VR/AR/XR projects, as well as projects from the Hackspace for Innovation and Visualization in Education (HIVE) and UBC IT! 

There will also be opportunities to meet with the student teams who built the projects. The EML is a campus hub for imagining new ways to use emerging technologies to enhance learning. The showcase is the only place where you’ll walk around an augmented reality brain, conduct a virtual orchestra, and manipulate 3D mathematical functions in VR all in one day. Students, staff, faculty and industry consultants are invited to experience our projects and connect with the VR/AR community!
