TED 2017

Watch TED 2017 live in Barcelona! On the 28th of April we enjoyed three sessions (streaming of 22 talks – deferred because of the timezone difference) of the TED event in Vancouver without the need to move there and without having to pay the 8.500 USD ticket, all together with our community in the Mobile World Centre in the center of Barcelona.

Furthermore, we offered a fair of experiences where our community was able to experience various innovative products from different fields. It was possible to play a virtual reality game (“room escape”), test the glasses Microsoft HoloLens, paint a virtual painting in three dimensions and take funny pictures in our photo booth.
