Ever wish you could go beyond what meets the naked eye in a world-famous museum? How about building your own city with the snap of your fingers? Then you’re in for a treat!
From March 10 through 12 at EU@SXSW (508 E. 6th St) you will have the opportunity to test out the world of Augmented and Virtual Reality with the EUseum and Atlas, two of the latest innovations from the European Union. The EUseum – the EU’s first VR-only museum – allows you to experience the best of European masterpieces and the stories behind them, bringing Europe’s finest artwork across the Atlantic and directly into your home. Meanwhile, Atlas blends both AR and VR to give you the ability to build cities that take on a life of their own, becoming living organisms alongside everything else in the room. These demos will be available during all open hours of EU@SXSW; registration will be required upon entry to the venue.
