Embodied Labs & Oregon Storyboard Collaborate

At the end of this month, Oregon Storyboard will host a hack-a-thon, where the goal will be to create an interactive, 3-D model of an eyeball that shows the progression of macular degeneration. The winning team will receive compensation and their eyeball model could become a part of Embodied Labs’ platform. Embodied Labs is gratified to be joining with OSB to build a model of collaboration in the VR community and can’t wait to see what the teams come up with!
