About Us

Augmented Reality Club is an organization in which great people "shape reality". This is a place where Augmented/Mixed Reality pioneers and developers get together to build fantastic applications, mainly in teams (but individuals are always welcomed, as well), for devices such as the Hololens and more to come in the future.

Mission

We are here to create an environment where developers can learn and implement their AR ideas with a team. Our goal is to promote awareness of augmented reality and to equip students with the tools they need to be prepared for the new emerging technologies of tomorrow.

Values

Committment

AR Club's members and community strives to inspire and continue to work on augmented reality development with conviction. Commitment to finish the project at hand, has been the priority of AR Club, and will continue to provide the equipment for members to stay committed through semester to come.

Support

AR Club has become such a great community since its inception. The community strides to make every single member feel connected with the ultimate goal to learn and to build the future. AR Club is proud to have the responsibility to continuously create the environment needed to provide the tools needed for our members; whether that is friendships, development advise, hardware or software assistance. We support our members, as they support us.

Creation

Ultimately one of the most important reason we created this organisation, was to build the future. AR Club's members are motivated individuals that want to create the next innovation of tomorrow. This is what AR Club is, a group of individuals that will stay ahead of the new emerging technologies, such as augmented reality.
