We’ve had a very busy week. In addition to hosting our latest London VR Meetup, we also put the finishing touches on a brand-new interactive retail experience to launch Diesel’s new men’s fragrance and released the details of next month’s Innovations in Healthcare Communications event.
In other non-Inition news, it turns out Sir David Attenborough loves Australia’s Great Barrier Reef (in 3D), some very talented fashion designers are using 3D printing to the wonderment of – going to be bold here – the entire world, and some lovely older individuals got to try the Oculus Rift for the first time (cute alert).
