The blockchain is as misunderstood yet powerfully compelling as any emerging technology. It’s no longer sufficient to merely explain the technical nuances and intricacies, the time has come for people to experience them. Solstice FWD attendees participated in one of the first human blockchain experiments in history. Interactions and exchanges were recorded, and the “future of trust in a trustless world” was on full display.
Augmented reality is making it possible to merge virtual objects into the physical world around us. To explore the possibilities, Adam and fellow Solstice engineers built rockstAR, an interactive AR experience demoed at Solstice FWD. By coupling the power of Microsoft’s HoloLens, Philips Hue Lightbulbs, and a series of stage technologies, users are given the ability to customize a live rockband experience.
Vender is an IoT connected vending machine that started as an R&D project at Solstice before Adam joined the team. Less than a month before Solstice's first ever digital innovation summit, they wanted to expand Vender to the virtual world. Adam took the project on head first and developed the first ever virtual reality vending machine experience.
