See and feel how Augmented Reality brings Oakville to life in a new way!  

 Eventbrite - Oakville Immersed!

If you have kids, or are a kid at heart, you've probably heard of Pokémon Go and even played it! As of April 2017, over 65 million people were playing this augmented reality (AR) game monthly and the app had been downloaded over 750 million times*.As millions have hunted for Pokémon with their smartphones they've also been introduced to Augmented Reality (AR).

AR blurs the line between what's real and what's computer-generated by enhancing what we see, hear, feel and smell.

But, how else can AR be used to provide new, fun and interesting experiences? That's what OAKVILLE IMMERSED is all about. It's an Immersive Exhibition that brings photography, video and augmented reality together to showcase Oakville in a new way.

Join us Jan 25 and 26, 7 to 10 pm at Apple Suites, in Oakville. You will see local photos and products come to life! Just bring your smartphone. Network, enjoy some fine wine and experience how technology can bring new experiences to tourism, culture and product promotion.

Topic: Breaking Bad Habits and Building Confidence

A few of our members have already taken Mel Robbin's CreativeLive course "How to Break the Habit of Self-Doubt and Build Real Confidence", so we are going to share some of her teachings with the group and coach each other to better outcomes in 2018.

The Women in Tech Peer 2 Peer group’s goal is to empower women in business by examining the unique gender based challenges of working in and with technology to effect progressive change within our working and community environments. 

Meet ups are generally for women only who work or live in Halton.  Non-Silicon Halton members are welcome.

Each month we'll have a topic for debate, and an opportunity for individuals to share challenges and successes with the group in a safe, supportive setting. 

Meetup formats may include dinner discussion meetings, guest speaker presentations, or workshops - depending on the topic.

Friday, February 2, 2018  |  Drop-in Anytime, 8:30am-4:30pm  |  MEV Innovation Centre, Milton

MEV Collage

Once each month the Innovation Centre opens its doors to Silicon Halton members.  Whether this your first opportunity to experience co-working or your 15th time, join fellow Silicon Halton members, and Innovation Centre members, at our monthly Silicon Halton Day at the MEV in Milton.

"Traditionally, society forces us to choose between working at home for ourselves or working at an office for a company. If we work at a traditional 9 to 5 company job, (the employer provides) community and structure, but lose freedom and the ability to control our own lives. If we work for ourselves at home, we gain independence but suffer loneliness and bad habits from not being surrounded by a work community. Coworking is a solution to this problem." - Brad Neuberg, first person to use the term "Coworking" and founder of first coworking space (The Spiral Muse in San Fransisco).

If you work in home office or small office, can you afford not to come?

Choose your own window

What time you spend at the Innovation Centre is your decision. Come for an hour, the morning or afternoon, just for a Lunch & Learn, or all day. Come in, find a desk, get to work.
