Organization: 
MIT Media Lab

The annual Reality Virtually AR/VR hackathon at the MIT Media Lab invites members of greater Boston’s healthcare and medicine community to apply to participate in the hackathon. The healthcare and medicine category has produced innovative submissions during the last two hackathons. The hackathon organizers’ goal is to reach deeper into the healthcare and medicine community to increase the number of participants in this category.

Learn the latest in AR/VR technology, collaborate on groundbreaking new projects and work with state-of-the-art loaner gear during the Reality Virtually Hackathon from January 17-21 at the MIT Media Lab. The hackathon will have HTC Vive Pros, Magic Leap, Oculus  Rift and Google ARCore headsets and devices to loan. ​


About the Hackathon

The hackathon is a five-day learning experience designed to deepen our understanding of how immersive technologies can be applied to solve real-world problems. The participants will be 50% students and 50% working practitioners.
The event will bring together 400 participants to Cambridge where they will form interdisciplinary teams and develop innovative and original applications in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). The hackathon spends a lot of time and energy in ensuring diversity of attendees. VentureFizz first wrote about the Hackathon here.
