What is AWE?
The HQ for everything Spatial Computing, including: Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Mixed Reality (MR), collectively referred to as Extended Reality (XR); as well as enabling technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), bio-interfaces, haptics, 5G, streaming and more.
Every minute engaged in AWE contributes to the acceleration of the XR industry, ultimately driving us closer to the goal declared by AWE’s cofounder:
“If we are able to harness the power of XR and AI to help fight some of the greatest challenges facing humanity, then by 2030 Spatial Computing will be a trillion-dollar industry. The XR community is therefore faced with a moral responsibility to further human progress through technology, and with that comes a huge economic opportunity.” – Ori Inbar, AWE co-founder.
AWE EXPO is a series of major conferences and exhibitions (USA, EU, Asia) featuring the leading XR companies and speakers and the best networking in XR. And just last week, AWE EU 2022 was hosted in Lisbon, Portugal. Here you can find a summary of what happened on the two days this expo lasted
AWE EU DAY 1 RECAP & HIGHLIGHTS
As is standard with AWE events, things were kicked off by AWE co-founder, Ori Inbar, whose opening keynote explored how XR technology has a proven track record of making dreams a reality for people all over the world. Whether it is in the form of a virtual reality experience enabling people to see places they would never otherwise get the chance to visit, or augmented reality bringing Pokemon to life and fulfilling the lifelong dream of becoming a real Pokemon trainer for many people, XR really does seem to have an answer for everything.
