CERC Hosts VR Hackathon
The Seattle VR Hackathon was held this past weekend in the University of Washington’s Center for Education and Research in Construction. The event consisted of two simultaneous competitions, the AEC Hackathon and the Virtual Reality Hackathon organized by Damon Hernandez, Greg Howes and others from the local AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) and VR communities. Only being able to choose to one event, I shadowed the UW’s VR guru, Tom Furness, as he judged the virtual reality projects that emerged from the two-day hackathon.
