From Toys to Technology | Stereoscopic Display

Monday, May 18, 2009 from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Interested in stereoscopic display technology engineered in Oregon? If “YES!” is your answer, come join us on Monday, May 18th @ 6:30 pm, at Portland Community College Cascade Campus to learn about Viewmaster, Planar, MacNaughton Inc., and Schrodinger stereoscopic display technology and heritage.

Event Details

The evening will begin at 6:30 pm with registration, light refreshments and networking. At 7:00 pm, announcements will be followed by a general overview presentation to acquaint everyone with stereoscopic terms and concepts. This will be followed by a brief history of Oregon’s very own Viewmaster, proceeded by presentations from Planar, MacNaughton, and Schrodinger. We’ll conclude with demonstrations and hands-on of the various technologies. Our guest speakers will be available to answer your questions.

Should be informative, educational and fun. Hope to see you there!
