Augmented Reality Chicago

Augmented Reality (AR) - What is it? What are the latest hardware and software technologies? Who's working on it? How can you use it? This group exists to bring together and strengthen the AR community in Chicago for AR demos, networking, and information sharing. Whether your an artist, designer, developer, entrepreneur, writer, student, journalist, or anyone else interested in AR - we hope to be your go-to community in Chicago.


CHIVR is dedicated to educating the community about Virtual and Augmented Reality.

We invite the community to come, ask questions and explore VR and AR with us. We meet every month and hold panel discussions, demos and networking events.

We host speakers from all over the world, the top leaders in their fields, who provide informative and engaging presentations, in-depth panel discussions, and new product announcements to ensure the midwest is a leader within this developing ecosystem.
