On the 9th of November a new live event, named E52 Live!, was introduced in Eindhoven. The event organized by E52 was all about the new innovations and technologies the ‘’Brainport’’ region is developing. Our presenter Fleur went to the event to tell the public about Augmented Reality and engage them with an AR quiz.
A successful night
From eight ’til ten o’clock there was a stage program with ten live acts. Every live act had 10 minutes to present themselves. We were up first and gave the audience a superquick introduction into the world of AR. After that we tested the AR knowledge of the public with an interactive quiz. Almost 100 people participated and eventually one winner retrieved the grand prize: a 3D printed bust of himself, 3D printed by Lay3rs.
Other acts were the student teams behind the Stella project (a family car on solar energy) , BlueJay (a drone as domestic help) from the Technical University of Eindhoven, Arie Rommer the man with a bionic hand and his story and many more. The event finished at midnight and because of positive sounds will definitely return next year!
