October 15, 2018 – Toronto, ON – NexTech AR solutions (the “Company” or “NexTech”) is pleased to announce its participation in the launch of Stephen Hawking’s October 15th sold out event held at The Royal Institution of Great Britain. The Royal Institution was founded in March 1799 with the aim of introducing new technologies and teaching science to the general public. NexTech was tapped to create an IMAX short film for this event which will be the basis for potential additional Stephen Hawking AR and holographic content.
The book, which Stephen Hawking was working on at the time of his death, is drawn from his extraordinary personal archive and has been completed in collaboration with his academic colleagues, his family and the Stephen Hawking Estate. In one of only two public events to celebrate publication, a panel of Hawking’s peers and other distinguished academics will be contemplating and celebrating his work, his legacy and discussing his – and their – answers to the Big Questions including Can We Predict the Future? Is there a God? Will we Survive on Earth? And Will AI Outsmart Us?
“NexTech is proud to have been chosen to create a 6-minute film to be shown to the gathering luminaries at this prestigious event” comments Paul Duffy President of NexTech. Stephen Hawking once explained his mission this way: “My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.”
The famed British theoretical physicist may not have answered all the questions before he died on March 14ht at age 76. But he is leaving a final book. It will be divided into four parts: “Why Are We Here?” Will We Survive?”, Will Technology Save Or Destroy Us?” and “ How Can We Thrive?”
