aweFrom X-ray vision to teleportation, augmented and virtual realty, wearables and the Internet of Things are bringing “Superpowers to the People”.  These new technologies are enabling us to be better at anything we do in work and life, transforming the ordinary into extraordinary, and giving superpowers to anyone that has access to them.

Find your superpowers at this year’s Augmented World Expo (AWE), the largest conference and expo featuring augmented and virtual reality, wearable tech and IoT. Over 3,000 tech professionals will engage in over 20+ workshops, 200+ interactive demos, a VR experience powered by UploadVR and 100+ AWE-inspiring talks at the Santa Clara Convention Center next week, June 8-10, 2015.

Day one of the conference is dedicated to learning with over 20 workshops and aimed at equipping developers, designers, CIOs, and technologists with the knowledge and skills you need to work with the latest technologies. Day two features nearly 100 micro-talks showcasing product demos and presentations on industry use cases leveraging AR, VR, wearables, and IoT. The final day of the conference is set to inspire the audience with some of the world’s leading experts and pioneers telling their stories of creating experiences with interactive tech. This year’s keynotes include the father of wearable computing, Steve Mann; award winning Sci-Fi author, David Brin; Google’s Project Tango lead, Johnny Lee and Aviad Almagor, Augmented Reality Program Manager at Trimble, a Microsoft Hololens partner.
