Silicon Valley 2019

We partnered with the Institute for the Future to bring together a group of Filmmakers, Storytellers and Developers to engage in a conversation about the future of XR tech, and generate visionary ideas and build a quick prototype. For the day we had mentors and speakers from Magic Leap, Singularity University, OpenEXO, Google, Mozilla, and many more!

After a series of keynote speakers, participants were formed into multidisciplinary teams and following Garage Stories methodology - which combines design thinking and gamification- the came up with a shared vision for the future of XR tech, than later they translated into a project.


The winning team -SIA: augmented stories for people with cognitive disorders to navigate the real world more easily- will present its project at the AWE conference 2019.
