It is 2018, we are normalizing realities beyond the physical. Virtual reality and augmented reality are, by nature, in the forefront of innovation. So why are we still using touchscreens and controllers? We are already talking to our tech, why not wave at it too? It’s time to adopt a new and more natural way of interacting with technology.
Funds from around the world are represented at the event, looking to discover frontier technology and identify new investment opportunities.
