INDE Sponsors UCLA’s “exploretech.la” Event Supporting Students from Underserved Communities
With nearly 8 years of experience in building next-generation solutions using Augmented Reality technology, INDE is proud to be sponsoring this year’s exploretech.la event, taking place at UCLA’s Ackerman Grand Ballroom on April 10, 2019.
INDE will be conducting a workshop themed “How Digital Content will reshape how we view the Real World”. Through real-life examples of successful AR projects installed worldwide, as well as live demonstrations on HoloLens and MobileAR both during the workshop and at the expo hall, students will be able to learn more about how Augmented Reality fundamentally changes the way we interact with the world around us.
Exploretech.la, an annual event held at UCLA, aims to encourage and inspire high school students from underserved communities in the Greater Los Angeles area to pursue possibilities in computer science and technology. Through panels, interactive workshops, and booths representing UCLA student organizations as well as industry, the event aims to make computer science and technology more accessible to local high school students.
Alex Poulson, INDE’s CEO said: “AR represents a sea change in how we will consume digital content going forward. We are now in the transition from the broadcast/consumption of content from 2D to a three dimensional space. AR offers a unique path towards integrating digital data into the real world to create the next computing platform.”
One of the first projects for the UK-based company was developing a large-screen AR experience for National Geographic in 2011. Since then, INDE has become a fully integrated Augmented Reality product developer, with more than 200 mobile, kiosk and big-screen AR systems deployed worldwide. Its client roster includes for The Smithsonian Institution, The BBC, NBC Universal, 20th Century Fox, WWF and numerous others.
As an increasing number of institutions and companies in entertainment, education, retail and commercial solutions are looking at innovative ways to provide unforgettable experiences to their customers and audiences, Augmented Reality has become one of the most sought-after technologies today, due to its ability to inform, engage, educate and entertain in an entirely new way.
INDE currently operates offices in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Budapest and Los Angeles.
