Reality Report #9: Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality

Reality Report #9: Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality

Only one week to go until the Augmented World Expo Europe opens its doors in Munich. More than 100 speakers and 80 exhibitors are expected to showcase their latest AR and VR trends. Besides AWE, my personal highlight for this month has been Google's presentation of the Pixel 2 phone. Mountain View delivered the performance we all expected from Cupertino earlier this month. In the smart glasses league, the light-field company Avegant announced their first development kits. Enjoy reading the latest Reality Report.
