Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are definitely the future. That’s the feedback we heard from you – thanks for attending our ‘AR / VR’ Digital Irish night. We were so happy to see such a big turnout for our first meetup of 2016! Lots of new faces!
I think we can all agree that we had three fantastic demos from Framestore, Firstage and Daqri along with the industry talk from Mark Skwarek at NYU.
Below are the company ‘asks’ and we encourage you all to reach out with any suggestions or just to connect.
Eileen Cooney – Framestore
Framestore are looking for intros to people who are ready to work on creative projects with AR & VR- brands, agencies, movie studios, production houses, event planners – even corporate applications.
Keith Lawlor – Firstage
Firstage are looking for intros to big brands – beverage, music, entertainment industry as well as intros to artists and musicians.
Brian Hamilton – DAQRI
DAQRI are looking for great Irish talent. If you know of anyone looking to work in this area, please tell them to go to www.daqri.com and look at the open listings on the website. Brian is also looking to connect with people in the manufacturing/heavy industries.
We are always looking for new ideas around content for our Digital Irish events. If you have any suggestions for us or know of any Irish startups based in NYC or visiting NYC, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
