The PROTO Emerging Technologies Centre in Gateshead had its official opening on November 1! The event was opened by Gateshead Cllr John Adams, who was joined by speakers from Unity, the Digital Catapult, Pocket Money Games and many others, as well as demos and exhibits from local companies.

Professor Lars Erik Holmquist joined a panel that included hedgehog lab, the North East Tees Valley Immersive Lab, and was lead by PROTO Innovation Manager Alex Cook. Lars Erik talked about the importance of long-term research to create truly ground-breaking innovations, such as the tablet computer and the head-mounted virtual reality display, both first envisioned some 50 years ago.

Thanks for a great event and we look forward to many fruitful collaborations!
