Bose Challenge: University of California, Berkeley

In partnership with the Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership


How might we use sound-based augmented reality to improve our lives?

Bose wants to empower students to learn about audio augmented reality and design meaningful experiences around it. Bose AR is a new audio augmented reality technology and platform that makes it possible to superimpose sound on top of the real world. With AR, novel experiences for music, communicating, learning, traveling, and more are possible.

Students will work in interdisciplinary teams (including content creators, designers, engineers, business leaders, and more!) to gain real-world experience designing for AR, explore how companies actually develop products, and develop their professional networks. Teams will be formed at the kick-off event. 

All student teams attending the 3 hour kickoff event will receive Bose hardware*. 

Over the following 2 weeks, students can use Bose hardware to explore a problem or opportunity, build something, and communicate the engineering and business value behind their accomplishments.
