About MN VR and HCI:

MN VR and HCI (Human-Computer Interaction) welcomes developers and tinkerers working with all variety of VR, HCI, hardware hacking, creative coding and interactive art.
Members are working on projects with custom displays and lenses, projection mapping, mocap, tiny computers, servos and sensors, interactive statues and a wide variety of VR, AR, motion and computer vision applications.

If you’ve only been to our parent group IGDATC meetings, MN VR and HCI is a slightly different format: We aim for smaller group discussions and lots of specific details.
