"It gets even more interesting when virtual and augmented reality meets the Internet of Things."  — Phil Repp

 IoT is taking over the technology industry with a huge bang! Our focus is to make the IoT smarter and more suitable for human interaction. Virtual Reality is the next billion dollar industry and it is the future of the Entertainment Gaming and Education Industry. Now imagine the possibilities that can exist if we were to we combine the worlds of Virtual Reality and Internet of Things This session will enable people with minimal knowledge of VR and basic IoT boards(such as Arduino Raspberry Pi) to experience the best of the IoT &amp VR worlds.

Furthermore attendees will experience a remote tele-robotic presence as they transport and assume the identity of a web-connected robot tasked with monitoring and maintaining atmospheric conditions.

Along with the view of the place the robot will be monitoring the nearby surroundings such as temperature humidity and light intensity which will be then displayed along with the scenario displayed by VR device. Thus by this audience will learn how to Combine IoT with VR and hence make their own smart telepresence system like Jarvis.

By the end of the session the audience will gain an increased understanding of the VR and IoT landscape as well as how these technologies can be combined to give them an experience in life that was previously never-before-possible. A short Q&ampA session will be held after the [talk/workshop].
