It’s the third Thursday of the month VenCaf Community and you know that means, we’re bringing you the partnership of TechSTL & Venture Café; Collide! It was a night that was dedicated to the future of what our reality could look like as it merges with all the other kinds, Virtual, Augmented, and Multi-Reality! Let’s get into this Thursday Gathering and what it offered!

To kick things off we had the return of community favorite Myrina Renaissance, NFT Guru & Educator over at Mwanzo Tech. Her insight into the capabilities and potential of NFT is invaluable. Its future as an alternative funnel for artists to benefit off of their art is something that that is an expert on. We love hearing from her and what she thinks about the space of NFT’s.

At the same time we also had Brad Martin & Zach Ridings from Another Reality Studios showing off how technology can allow us to tap into different perspectives of reality through AR, VR, and MR. They gave us first hand accounts by providing VR tech and utilizing QR codes to turn any phone into an AR device! That’s a lot of acronyms, and they made sure to tell us about each one and what it was capable of!

As we move into next week, look forward to Community & Corporate Partnerships, which showcases our consistent and amazing sister foundations taht are changing the city one ecosystem at time! Feel free to find out more on our website, and with that, COLLIDE: Extended Reality is all wrapped up VenCaf Community! We hope to see you next week!
