CANCELED - Imagine Meetup: Where Food Meets Immersive Entertainment

What is the best restaurant you have ever been to? What made it so good? Was it the food, the location, or the atmosphere? We have all seen it before — majestic tiny portions on elegant platters are what constitute that 5-star dining experience we see so often. But what if “eating out” was more than the food? As new ideas are being combined with new technologies, dining may forever be changed from the simple night out, to a full experience beyond sight and sound.

We invite you to join us as we discuss how virtual reality, immersive experiences, and theoretical frameworks such as synesthesia are being applied in the restaurant, and how these new experiences may hold up to the tried-and-true dining experiences we are familiar with. Join us at this Moody MeetUp as we plan on demonstrating a mini-dining experience of our own! This is also a great chance to experience VR/AR yourself, but also as a way to network with other students and faculty interested in bridging industries with emerging technology. All are welcome!

Every 2nd Wednesday of each month from 6-8 PM, Imagine Moody comes together to connect the Austin Media Community with students and faculty at UT through an informal network. At each MeetUp, there is ample time to demo emerging technologies that have impacted industries we interact with everyday, and to bring ideas of your own to discuss with others interested in the industry. MeetUps are hosted on UT campus at our Imagine Lab (CMA 6.154)... the perfect place to collaborate and develop the next big thing here at UT!

Wednesday, April 8 at 6:00pm to 8:00pm
