Presenter Bio

We are a student team that works with NASA to develop an AR HUD for astronauts to use on the space station. We develop in C# within the Unity Game Engine. We utilize the Microsoft Hololens and Oculus VR to implement a full system to communicate with ground control. We perform large amounts of outreach, and enjoy taking opportunities such as Boise CodeCamp to display emerging technology such as AR.
