Inspired by deaddrops, AVALON [Anonymous Virtual Augmented Local Networks] is a method of repurposing consumer devices into location based mixed reality portals powered by WiFi. I’ll show you how to build a device that allows multiple users to socialize, share files, and collaborate together in realtime just by connecting to the same WiFi network. Avoid censorship, get your story heard by the community with your own virtual private island.
Alu began as a network security researcher and cyber artist with over 4 years experience as a Linux mixed-reality developer thinking about applications that go beyond gaming. He’s been a speaker at VR events from coast to coast and is the CTO and co-founder of Venn.Agency, a Los Angeles based start-up specializing in immersive technology infrastructure and content creation for the coming age of mixed reality. His other hobbies include creating dev art generated with machine learning algorithms and constructing virtual galleries to host exhibits.
