What is Reality
What is Reality is a new set of experiences that highlights immersive technologies. Discover the different approaches local scientists, engineers, and artists take to explore existential and practical questions. What is real and how do we know? What makes a fact? What constitutes proof? What tools and technologies do scientists and innovators use to answer these questions? How might technologies such as virtual and augmented reality alter our relationship with reality and with each other?
What is Reality is an opportunity to confront a broad variety of mind-bending topics alongside scientists and innovators who are shaping the future. In the coming months, expect a changing suite of highly-engaging experiences that will push and challenge our understanding of reality.
