Next iMug Monthly Meeting—
Tuesday 24 February 2015
Time: 7:00pm - 9:15pm, refreshments from 6:30pm
Venue: The Library at The Dock, 107 Victoria Harbour Promenade, Docklands Vic 3008, Melbourne. The Library is 50 meters from the end of Tram Lines 11 and 48. Street parking is also available. See map and directions. This new facility has a state-of-the-art presentation room with full AV capabilities and a robust internet connection providing NBN speeds.
iMug welcomes all members and visitors to the first meeting for 2015. We start off with one of our favourite presentations always - from Les Posen. Those of you who may be coming for the first time and have not heard Les before have a treat in store, and those of us who a familiar with Les's quirky informative approach need no second invitation.
Nominate yourself beforehand to demonstrate in the second half of the evening the quirky stuff of which you are particularly fond and be rewarded with an iTunes card!!
Les Posen, iMug president, has been employing VR since 2001 (yes 2001) in his clinical psychology practice, and likely has more experience than any other practitioner in Australia. He has presented on his VR interventions in Montreal at ICAO (the subunit of the United Nations which oversees international commercial aviation), and while they were Windows based, in 2015, things have changed and Les will discuss what's occurring on the Mac platform.
This is the presentation for the rest of us, and because of the rich stories that Les always provides, he will be our only speaker for this evening.
The second half of the evening, however, will feature the quirky stuff and each person who is selected (and who have nominated themselves ahead of time) will receive an iTunes card.
Les will cover events in the Apple firmament, but will be especially focussing in on Virtual and Augmented reality applications which is "hot" at the moment, with demos of equipment and apps he uses in his clinical practice, as well as what is just around the corner this year, inc Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear discussion.
Note for those unable to attend: On this occasion the evening will be recorded rather than live streamed.
