About this event :

Watch TED 2018 in Barcelona! On the 14th of April we enjoyed three sessions (streaming of 23 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 10.000 USD ticket, all together with our community in IED university in Gracia of Barcelona.

Furthermore, we offered a fair of experiences where all were able to experience various innovative products from different fields. It was possible to test the glasses Microsoft HoloLens, travel virtually through the world (using Oculus Rift and Google Earth VR), paint a virtual painting in three dimensions (using HTC-Vive and Tiltbrush) and take funny pictures in our photo booth from Smybox.

As always and for a small fee of 18 EUR we were also offering drinks and tapas during the breaks while all could do networking with other curious minds of the city.

We kindly thank our sponsors which are helping and supporting us in organising our events.
