ISMAR2015 is being held at Fukuoka City, from September 29th to October 3rd, 2015. Fukuoka City is one of the most populated cities in Japan (currently, 1.5 million people are living in Fukuoka) and the largest city in Kyushu Island.

One of Google's most anticipated projects, Project Tango, will be featured at AWE Asia. Project Tango combines 3D motion tracking with depth sensing to give your mobile device the ability to know where it is and how it moves through space. At AWE USA this past June, Tango lead Johnny Lee demonstrated this new technology by placing a digital car on stage and took a tour around it with a tablet powered by Tango before getting inside of it.
This October your dream of being able to fly will become a reality. AWE Asia is pleased to feature MindRide's AirFlow experience, an interactive and immersive experience which will let you take to the skies. AirFlow uses a combination of virtual reality, harnesses and fans to simulate the flying experience complete with the wind in your face. MindRide won best in show at Augmented World Expo this past summer in Santa Clara where it wowed the crowds in the virtual reality expo created in partnership with UploadVR.

From X-ray vision to teleportation, new technologies are bringing “Superpowers to the People” which is exactly why we have chosen this concept as the AWE 2015 conference theme. Our new cast of characters help us exemplify how AR, VR, Wearables and IoT are transforming the ordinary into extraordinary, giving superpowers to anyone that has access to them.
We are pleased to announce our initial list of speakers and sessions for AWE 2015 including workshops, micro-talks, product demonstrations and epic talks from luminaries such as Tom Furness, Steve Mann and David Brin. Check it out.
