Next week will be half-term school holidays for the majority of kids in the UK, and for parents looking for something to do Westfield Shopping Centre in Shepherds Bush will be holding a free technology event. 30 brands will be in attendance, showcasing some of the best products of 2016 including virtual reality (VR), photography, tech toys, 3D printing, personal transport, home automation and more.
On the VR side, Freefly VR, EHANG, BrizTech Ltd and O2 Home will be demoing their latest immersive technology. Freefly VR will be showing the latest mobile powered VR experiences at its stand, as well as running a Bandit Six challenge for a chance to win Freefly VR headsets signed by YouTube celebrity Monstah.
EHANG will have its Ghostdrone 2.0 VR on display. It’s a “ready to fly” VR drone that comes complete with professional FPV goggles that allow users to see exactly what the drone sees. The goggles also control the on-board camera; look up, down and around and the camera follows.
Briztech Ltd is an international retailer of the Google Cardboard head-mounted display (HMD), the most cost effective way to enjoy VR. The company will be offering free demos at the event. While O2 Home, which allows consumers to check on their house when away, control the heating, lighting, locks and more from their phone, will feature an interactive VR tour of a connected O2 Home so visitors can see who the system works.
The Technology Showcase will be running from 26th – 30th October, 2016, 10am – 10pm, apart from Sunday 30th which will be 12pm – 6pm. For further details on the event head to the official website.
