In this episode you will learn why spatial computing is so exciting, and the difference between virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality. You will hear it from the live voice of the first guy who put his hands on a HoloLens device in Belgium, when it was only available in the United States. Ward Peeters works at the forefront of this technology and shares his knowledge on where we are today and the way forward.
“The next computing era is spatial computing.” This is the prediction that Ward Peeters makes for the near future. Ward was mesmerised by Microsoft’s public presentation of the HoloLens and has since devoted his entire career to the development of mixed reality applications.
Ward is co-founder and managing partner at Roger Roll, a dynamic competence center that focusses on advising, guiding and developing experiences in spatial computing. Roger Roll is based in the Antwerp area, in Belgium.
