Beyond ARVR: How Tech Killed + Revived Interaction

Mar 15, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Our communication and interaction has evolved with technology. Today, we’re trending to spend far more time engaging through devices and screens than physically with other people. We can feel the disconnect but are still tempted, or forced based on circumstance, to pick up a device to connect and share with others. Our panel will explore how technology has killed the traditional way we interact with each other and how today’s most innovative companies are allowing interaction to rise from those ashes and take new shape to replicate those physical interactions across extended reality experiences.
