Augmented World Expo Interviews


So much has changed in the industry since my interviews in 2015 and 2016 with the early principal professionals and companies who were around when augmented reality was evolving into a viable technology for everyday mobile devices. This was the time I was at Google developing Project Tango, which was a core mobile technology with new sensors, processors, and algorithms that are now a foundation of ARCore, Google’s current Android AR framework.

See interviews from the booth at AWE 2015 and AWE 2016. I talk with CEOs and Founders, Influencers and Authors, the people who have a vested interest in the future as we progress towards an augmented world. Hear their stories as each interviewee gives their views on where we are heading.

The AWE is the premier conference covering Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Mixed Reality (MR) and enabling emerging technologies (5G, AI, etc.)
