BEST HELSINKI AUTUMN course 2016

Our awesome autumn course on virtual reality!
Welcome to explore the reality beyond the real! My name is Aki Malinen and I’m the Main Organizer of this course. I’m really excited about the course since this will be my first time as an MO. I will do my best to offer you an opportunity to learn, network develop yourself by lectures, projects and company visits on the the edge of virtual and augmented reality. Are you ready for the the full immersion?

-Aki

the course

“Immersion (virtual reality), the state of consciousness where an immersant's awareness of physical self is diminished or lost by being surrounded in an engrossing total environment”

What kind of applications are the virtual and augmented reality companies working on? What’s holding us back from the full immersion? How do tracking software work? These are questions we’re going to seek an answer to during our course. The autumn course will be organized in the campus area of the multidisciplinary Aalto University of Helsinki, where science and art meet technology and business. The course will include valuable education and networking not forgetting the fun: you also get to explore our campus life, the Helsinki city, have wild parties with Salmiakki and Minttu and maybe even spot the northern lights. Our weekend adventure and our famous sauna crawling will welcome you to the the land of a thousand lakes (187,888, to be precise) and two million saunas. Get a picture of the reality beyond the real!
