Holo-Hackathon (hosted by Looking Glass!) Sep 29-Oct 1



On Sep 29 - Oct 1, come join your fellow Hologram Hackers in Greenpoint, Brooklyn for the world’s first Holo-Hackathon with HoloPlayer One.

For those who are yet unfamiliar, HoloPlayer One is the world’s first interactive lightfield dev kit prototype created by the intrepid inventors at Looking Glass! HoloPlayer One is the first living system that allows anyone to touch, interact with and transform 3D creations in real physical space without any headgear - “What?!”

Over the course of a weekend, you’ll form lasting friendships with other developers, designers, and artists to collaboratively create your own holographic applications.

The theme for this first Hackathon is MEMORIES. Interpret this as you wish :slight_smile:

All Hologram Hackers are recommended to have previous experience developing with Unity (in any capacity!) as our main port into HoloPalyer One is currently only available in unity via our HoloPlay SDK.

Although we would love to include everyone in this first Holo-Hackathon but space and devices are limited. For this reason, we do ask that you fill out a very simple application form for us to ensure the greatest diversity of creators!! All applicants will be contacted on September 17th about your spot in this upcoming Hackathon!

The winning team will walk away with a shiny new HoloPlayer One to call their own!
