*Terminator Vision - Augmented Reality UnPlugged*
*When*: Tuesday, October 18, 2011
*6:00pm - 7:00pm:* Networking and Refreshments
*7:00pm - 8:30pm: *Panel Discussion and Q&A

Augmented-Reality holds the promise of merging the physical world with 
information, but the 'killer app' remains elusive. Today, the rise of 
the smartphone and tablet - with powerful 3D, 4G, and high-res cameras - 
combined with significant advances in computer-vision, are finally 
unleashing the full power of AR. Technology leaders such as Intel, 
Qualcomm, and Nvidia, are targeting AR's disruptive potential on mobile 
advertising, gaming, and education, by heavily investing in next-gen AR 
platforms.

With a market size projected to reach $1.5 billion by 2015, leading 
brands, entrepreneurs and investors are developing AR applications that 
meld virtual experiences with everyday consumer lives. But will the mass 
market embrace augmented reality experiences? How will these 
developments change the game for retailers, advertisers, teachers, and 
game and mobile applications -- and which monetization models will be 
most successful? Click here
