XR COMMUNITY CELEBRATION

MEDICAL XR DAY
Tuesday, December 8th
For 2020’s XR Safety Awareness Week, we can’t discuss emergent tech without looking at the amazing growth found in the Medical XR community.

Medical XR is rapidly evolving to engage with a post-pandemic world where people will have different expectations for what to expect with regards to medical care and healthy and privacy-aware use of XR tech at home and in the workplace. Let’s discuss how we can move forward together.

MEDICAL XR DAY | TUESDAY

END OF LIFE IN VR: WEBINAR

How can technology help us live more fully and support us in our final moments? What are the ethical implications of bringing emerging technologies into hospices, or helping us reunite with loved ones passed? Covid-19 has forced us to confront challenging subjects around mortality, and transformed how we grieve and attend funerals into the digital sphere. This event recording explores the role immersive technologies can play in palliative care, and new ways we can create a more grief literate society.
