We’re back for our first event of 2019! And we’ve got a new name and one of our best line ups yet. Formerly VR Hub Tokyo we decided to change the name to something that better represents the VR, AR and MR technologies we’ve been showcasing. We feel XR Nights will better represent what we’re all about as an event and a community.

This event inaugural XR Nights event will feature two great speakers both of whom are working uniquely on the cutting edge of the VR industry:

Founder and CEO of DVERSE Inc. Shogo Numakura is a name that fast became recognised and respected in the international VR community since its renaissance began back in 2014. He’ll be talking to us about the current state of XR (VR / AR / MR); how it will evolve with forthcoming technologies such as 5G and IoT sensor devices, AI and Edge Computing; and what we can expect to see this year. He’ll also have a hands on demo of his architectural VR design tool Symmetry VR for you to try out for yourself.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to control things with your mind? Then you won’t want to miss Associate Professor at Shibaura Institute of Technology, Ryota Horie’s talk on using Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) in VR. Learn how Horie and his team have applied BCI technology to VR and MR games and live concert experiences. Increase your powers in games by focusing your mind or have a visual effects at a concert evolve as your excitement increases. Learn all about this and don’t miss the chance to try it out for yourself.

We’re also currently working on booking in more demos for you to get hands on with. We’ll keep you updated as we get confirmations!

As always, there’ll be food and drinks available for all attending. Pre-pay now at tickets.xrnights.com for just ¥1,000,
