Already Quest3 and AVP have accessories for vision correction, but for full AR glasses, the positioning will be (more than any other previous tech gadget) at the tight intersection between consumer electronics, biomedical devices (correction glasses), and fashion items (being around for several years).

This diverse panel will discuss the future of AR glasses, including health (natural vision and prescription correction), customizability (glasses style and form factor), and feasibility (manufacturing and market readiness).

Our emotions are at the core of the human experience. Brene Brown’s research identifies 87 human emotions and experiences. It’s hard enough to identify and discern our own emotions and much harder to decipher what someone else is feeling, especially when we’re communicating digitally. There are new products that are changing this.

Join us for an enlightening panel discussion where leading innovators and investors converge to explore the forefront of emotional intelligence in technology. Discover how TRIPP is revolutionizing wellness, analyzing users' moods and emotions to tailor deeply personal experiences. We’ll discuss how sensing technologies in Apple Vision Pro and Meta Quest 3 help perceive and respond to emotional cues. We’ll explore Emerge’s unique tactile approach to multi-sensory communication that soon can unlock new ways to communicate emotions. You’ll also hear firsthand from a visionary investor who has championed the spatial computing sector since 2020, backing companies that push the boundaries of what's possible.

This panel promises to be a deep dive into the technologies shaping our emotional landscape, offering a glimpse into a future where tech not only understands but also adapts to our emotional needs, enriching our digital experiences in profound ways.
