VR SCI FEST 2019

This is the 3rd edition of the International festival dedicated to immersive technologies in Science and Tech hosted by KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

The theme of the festival this year is <SERIOUS GAMES>…are designed for a primary purpose other than pure entertainment, in the collaboration with game industry. The "serious" adjective is generally prepended to refer to industries like healthcare, city planning, engineering, and politics. We think immersive technologies present an advanced visualization for understandings of the incredible things we know and discover what is waiting to be known.

VR_Sci Fest is FREE and OPEN to the public, so everyone is welcome to come and explore the spherical world of Science and Tech. The festival program is rich and diverse: from popular 360 films to research labs and an industrial expo.

Time: Fri 2019-05-10 09.00 - 16.00
