Careers in Tech with the BBC's Innovation Showcase!
Join the Innovation Showcase at their interactive space which features the best of the BBC, and where they will take you on a journey, showing how the BBC is shaping the future of digital media.
It will include exciting live demos centred around augmented reality, synthetic media and voice assistants followed by a Q&A to discuss what types of jobs and careers these technologies could be generating.
The BBC is trialling a range of AR experiences. Some of them bring the world's most important objects to your location, others allow interaction with data about you or the world around you in three-dimensional space.
Give yourself X-ray superpowers and see inside objects and even under your floor. Challenge yourself to walk to the top of the Statue of Liberty or Eiffel Tower by visualising your health data. See the environmental impact your actions have on the world around you. Track down fossils and dinosaurs in your back garden
