Students had the rare opportunity to work with the Canon MREAL, a mixed reality headset developed by Canon, U.S.A., during a competition hosted by E2i Creative Studio. This event was the first event held by Canon, U.S.A.
Attendees to the judging event included companies such as Embraer and Design Interactive, who chose a winner based on the the effectiveness of the design, the value of the simulation, and how well they incorporated the physical environment with the virtual world.
"Working with the MREAL in this competition exposed me to a field of knowledge I would not have had the opportunity to be exposed to otherwise." -Jeff Alvarado, Digital Media major, UCF
