Science After Dark, November 15th

November 15, 2016, 6:30pm
Luis Wine Bar in San Luis Obispo

What Does Virtual, Augmented & Mixed Reality (VAMR) Mean in the Context of Your Everyday Life?

The Central Coast STEM Collaborative (CCSTEM), will continue its ongoing informal, educational lecture series “Science After Dark” with a lecture at 6:30pm, November 15, 2016 at Luis Wine Bar in San Luis Obispo. The series is scheduled for the third Tuesday of every month through May, 2017. Visit www.facebook.com/ScienceAfterDarkSLO or CCSTEM.org for details of future topics and locations.

Michael Balzer comes to Science After Dark to share not only what these terms mean, but also the potential of VAMR in any number of disciplines like Medicine & Health, Architecture, Education and even Recreation. Mixed Reality provides engineers and technicians the ability to see intangible 3D objects as they would be installed in a real world product. Augmented Reality allows us to view important information while still concentrating on the main task at hand like driving, or even collecting cute little characters from places around the world.

Audience members will be invited to experience VMAR first hand with current technology and get a sneak peek at the future of Virtual Reality.

October’s Science After Dark (SciAD)…

Published on October 11, 2016, by

SCIENCE AFTER DARK LECTURE SERIES

“Walter Reed Hospital Research Scientist Presents
Military Combat-Induced Hearing Loss and Prevention”

The Central Coast STEM Collaborative (CCSTEM), will continue its ongoing informal, educational lecture series “Science After Dark” with a lecture at 6:30pm, October 18, 2016 at Luis Wine Bar in San Luis Obispo. The series is scheduled for the third Tuesday of every month through May, 2017. See the SciAD page.

Hearing is known to play an essential role in military operations. However, the battlefield is also an extremely noisy place and our nation’s warfighters are often reluctant to wear hearing protection out of fear of losing their situational awareness. As a result, noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears) are the two most common permanent injuries suffered by service members in the US military. Join Research Audiologist Ben Sheffield for an evening examining the impact that hearing loss has on combat operations and the steps that are being taken at our nation’s hospital to eliminate the unfortunate tradeoff that soldiers are often faced with to sacrifice their hearing in order to protect their lives.
