Quick review
VR has inched its way into significance over the last few years and captured the imagination of many. Primarily used for gaming and entertainment, some developers and companies have started to experiment with offering products and platforms designed for work within a HMD (Head Mounted Display). During this presentation we will examine some of these offerings and see what WORK might look like in just a few years.

The presenter of this session will be participating from within VR. “Flatlanders” using a PC will join from their desktop or laptop using Zoom. Joining us at the TechKey will give you some insight in the vast world of virtual reality and answer some burning questions you’ve always wondered about.

Our Presenter

Rick has worked in health care his entire career, starting as an Orderly then a Nurse back in the early 1980’s. In the advent of Electronic Health Records in the 90’s, he turned his hobby of setting up PC’s for friends and family into a job and moved into IT. A lifelong Marylander he has spent his entire career in the Upper Chesapeake and University of Maryland systems.

His new passion is looking ahead at the next evolution in computing in XR technologies. XR representing Virtual, Mixed and Augmented Realities and how they will change work in the future. Rick runs the VR 4 Work Facebook Group and posts videos of his VR experiences on the VR 4 Work YouTube page.  

TechKey Virtual Talks, focus monthly on the latest things the NMTC Tech Team are learning that will help you to succeed no matter where you work, even working remotely.

TechKey Talks (virtual) give you quick, “Ah-Ha” explanations about the most important technologies, processes and self-help that sometimes perplex, frustrate, or make you hesitant to use. We give you the expert, along with their tips & shortcuts to help you master your world. It’s good conversation, and you’re invited. When in person, It’s over complimentary coffee and conversation.  Now being virtual, bring your coffee, and we’ll still have the conversation, and of course, you’re invited and your friends as well.
