NewsWe want to keep you informed about our achievements, milestones and recent news.
We are proud to announce that our CEO will be a panelist at the MIT Technology Conference 2017 on Saturday 2-18-2017 at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, MA, along with John R. Smith (IBM Research, Manager, Multimedia and Vision), Kent Bye (Road to VR) and Manohar Paluri (Research Leader at Facebook).
The MIT Tech Conference is an annual event hosted by the MIT Sloan Tech Club at the MIT Media Lab. Open to the general public, this conference features interactive expert panels, keynote speakers from the biggest names in tech and a showcase of the world’s most innovative technologies. This year’s conference will focus on the world’s most innovative Exponential technologies, and its objectives are to understand what’s preventing us from unlocking the full potential of converging exponential technology, explore the convergence of exponential technologies and study how they are creating more opportunities together.
Every so often, a technology comes along that launches our world into a new era. Advances like electricity, the personal computer and the internet each marked an exponential acceleration in technological growth and development. Today, potential exponential technologies like the Internet of Things, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and Synthetic Biology have already augmented our lives in ways previously unimaginable. Though individually, each technology has begun to alter the human experience, the potential of these technologies is profoundly amplified when they work together.
The 2017 Lumiere Awards will be held Monday, February 13th, 2017 at Warner Bros. Studios.
We invite you to join us for this year’s celebration of outstanding achievement.

ImmersiON-VRelia isn’t very well known yet, though you may start hearing more about the company now that it is shipping its first consumer product. We first took a look at the ImmersiON-VRelia’s GO headset at Immersed 2014. During the conference we were told that pre-orders were already being accepted and that the HDM was nearing release. ImmersiON-VRelia is likely expected to be shipping earlier than today, but in any case, we can confirm that the GO smartphone HMD is in fact going out to early customers this week.
