About this Workshop
You're About to Change Your Reality
We all view the world around us through our senses and our perception s of objects we come into contact with. Virtual and Augmented reality gives us the opportunities to alter or change some of the reality around us and have our brains respond to it. These changes in reality offer us the ability to visit and interact with objects that we may not normally have the opportunity to. Spend the day exploring the different aspects of Virtual and Augmented Reality.
