Tonsley In Adelaide Is A Playground For The Tech-Minded

Driverless vehicles, 3D holograms and more.

The garden at Tonsley

Last year’s venue for Hybrid World Adelaide, Tonsley, is a playground for the tech-minded. We caught up with some of the individuals and teams working on game-changing technology in the space, like Lateral Vision’s AR and VR; the Flinders Medical Device Research Institute’s OrbIT accessible gaming system; Voxon Photonic’s 3D holographic displays (no glasses required) and Aurrigo’s driverless pods. And that’s just the beginning.

Keep an eye on our website and social media in the coming days to find out more about each of these projects.

Do you have a tech idea of your own? Here are the reasons why you should apply to our #HWALAB.

#HybridWorldADL returns to Adelaide in July. More details about the event can be found here.

Five Reasons Why Everyone With A Tech Idea Should Apply To The #HWALAB

The Hybrid World Adelaide LAB is a space for new projects, products and plans that use digital technology to solve real world problems. Do you have a tech idea? Here are five reasons why you should apply.

1. The mentoring workshop

Over two days, you’ll meet a range of world-class mentors who will use their insights to guide you, discuss your ideas and give you tips and tricks to help your idea succeed.

2. Refining your idea

The #HWALAB is an opportunity to review your idea closely and develop it in an encouraging, productive environment. Regardless of the stage of development your idea is in, you’ll leave with a much clearer vision of the next steps you need to take to bring it to life.

3. Networking

You’ll be surrounded by start-ups and entrepreneurs from around Australia and the world. The opportunities to network are endless, and you’ll be able to share and talk about your ideas with tech-minded people who are as interested in the digital world as you are.

4. Developing your pitch

Regardless of how promising an idea might be, the pitch and messaging around it needs to be clear and engaging for the idea to be viable from a business perspective. At the #HWALAB, you’ll be given guidance on making your pitch as succinct, informative and exciting as possible.

5. Making your vision a reality

With $85,000 in SA Government grants up for grabs, the top pitches will get a kick start in bringing their ideas to reality. Where are last year’s grant winners now? They’re using the grants to develop software that helps fight cancer, making business exhibitions more exciting through projection technology and shaking up the TV industry.

This year’s #HybridWorldADL will take place in late July in the city of Adelaide. More details on the #HWALAB and how to apply here.
