Smart Cities <> XR Tech
October 17th-24th 2019
From October 17 to 24, Torre Barrina (City Council of L’Hospitalet) and Garage Stories co-organized the Festival L'H <> XR. Together we want to put innovation in the hands of everyone, bringing together people from different artistic disciplines and different degrees of knowledge to design innovative experiences with XR technologies (virtual, augmented and mixed reality) to foster the SDGs (sustainable development goals) that we have established to 2030.
During an intense week and through gamification and design thinking techniques, participants will be trained in multidisciplinary teams to explore the possibilities that the new XR technologies offer us (virtual, mixed and augmented reality) and challenged to generate and prototype innovative ideas. For the development of ideas and prototypes we will have mentors and production resources provided by our collaborators, however it is about generating powerful ideas and good prototypes that help us communicate them, the real development of the projects will be carried out later way.
The winning team LaiAPP will be incubated and presented at the City in December, and the 3 finalist projects will be presented at
