Past Event

This special Digital Futures event will include a presentation of the 3D Tune-In project and a discussion around the future of hearing health. Please note the showcase is free and drop-in, no need to book for this. A free ticket is needed for the panel discussion.

3D Tune-In is a project supported by the H2020 ICT program of the European Commission. Its purpose is to use Virtual Reality and 3D gaming technologies to support hearing impaired users in better understanding how to use their hearing aid.

Digital Futures is an open platform for displaying and discussing work by researchers, artists, designers, companies and other professionals working with art, technology, design, science and beyond.  It is also a networking event, bringing together people from different backgrounds and disciplines with a view to generating future collaborations.

In partnership with Imperial College in collaboration with Reactify, Vianet, GN Hearing, Nerlaska, XTeam, University of Malaga, University of Nottingham and De Montfort University Leicester.
