We threw a party!

For the first time ever, Metaio hosted an InsideAR event in the US, and with over 200 registrations it was a smashing success! Attendees witnessed the latest in augmented reality demos, and were treated to presentations by co-founders Thomas Alt and Peter Meier. And not forgetting that it was a beautiful summer evening in Santa Clara, everyone got a chance to enjoy the night with refreshments, colleagues and friends.

We collected some great photos from the event for everyone to enjoy- check them out on our Facebook page! [photos]

If you missed it, here are the slides from Thomas & Peter’s presentation [slides]

In lieu of a “pick of the week”, here’s a video of the Metaio team jumping in the pool after everyone left.

The pool was just sitting there- begging us to celebrate. Click the photo for the link to the video :)


Jack Dashwood
Jack knew that he was interested in Augmented Reality ever since he learned how to read at age 25. Fast forward and Jack now works at the center of the universe when it comes to AR: the offices of Metaio. How did he wind up here? We don’t know, but we have yet to find a legitimate excuse to get rid of him. In the meantime we let him work on the blog and run the Metaio US PR operations. When not talking and writing about AR technology, he can usually be found augmenting his reality by more traditional means down the local pub.
