Watch the Entire “Activeer Print” Seminar

Chris Cameron July 17, 2012

Last week we hosted our “Activeer Print” (Activate Print) event here in Amsterdam for close to 100 attendees from the publishing, print and media industries. We were thrilled by the turnout and we’re very thankful for all who attended.

If you weren’t able to make it (and if you happen to understand Dutch) you can now watch the entirety of the event online! We’ve uploaded videos of the presentations (6 in total) to YouTube and embedded a playlist above.

If you’d like to follow along with the slides, you can find those for Raimo and Leonieke’s talks right over here.

Don’t speak Dutch? Still be sure to check out video number 5, a walkthrough of the Layar Creator by own very own Xuan Wang. It’s in English, except for a small bit at the beginning, so be sure to have a look.

Come Out to LAYAR DAY L.A. May 20th

Chris Cameron May 10, 2011

If you’re in the Los Angeles area, we’ve got a special event coming up that we hope you’ll join us for!

On Friday May 20th, we will be hosting LAYAR DAY L.A. - a full day of hacking space and time with augmented reality. Join us as we seek inspiration from visionary thinkers and from street-level artists, and help us make some cool AR!

Meet the Layar team at 10:45am at the Geffen Contemporary for an informal visit to the Art in the Streets exhibition of street art. MOCA opens at 11am and admission is $10 at the door.

From 1:30-3:00pm, we move to the Arts Center College of Design where artist Sander Veenhof and Layar’s Gene Becker will lead a hands-on workshop for artists, designers and enthusiasts who want to learn to make augmented reality experiences on the Layar platform. We’ll use street art, public AR art exhibitions and historical layers as examples of hacking space and time.

Following the workshop, join us from 3:00-6:00pm for an afternoon with some of the most visionary and creative minds in augmented reality. We have an incredible lineup of speakers including noted author Bruce Sterling, Layar co-founder Maarten Lens-FitzGerald, Scott Fisher of USC’s School of Cinematic Arts and Dutch artist Sander Veenhof.

The LAYAR DAY L.A. workshop and symposium is hosted by Art Center College of Design, and will be held in the Faculty Dining Room at ACCD’s Hillside Campus, 1700 Lida St., Pasadena, CA. The informal tour of Art in the Streets will meet at 10:45am at the Geffen Contemporary.

Space is limited so visit this page to reserve your place at either the workshop or symposium.
