****👋 Welcome to XR Kaigi mini!
XR Kaigi mini is the spin-off event of XR Kaigi, the largest annual VR/AR developer conference in Japan. (Kaigi is Japanese for “conference.”) XR Kaigi mini is an English language webinar series to introduce the trends and initiatives of Japan’s VR/AR and Metaverse industries to those outside of the country.
The Metaverse, the latest hot topic in VR, is also making waves in Japan—in the country’s own unique ways. Various efforts and initiatives can already be seen in the field, such as the recreation of locales from popular anime/manga, or the virtualization of real-life cities and conventions led by the cities themselves. The inaugural XR Kaigi mini will focus on these efforts, inviting the industry’s top players to present and discuss their projects.
Six companies will present: Cluster, the platform behind the Virtual Shibuya and Pokemon Virtual Fest events; HIKKY, known for its Virtual Market conventions and its recent funding round of 6.5 billion yen (approx $57M); Ambr, responsible for the creation of Tokyo Game Show VR; MonoAI, which holds exhibitions in a virtualized representation of an actual stadium; Sony Music Entertainment, which created virtual worlds for the anime series Sword Art Online and Devilman; and VirtualCast, which its VR platform and avatar systems are being used for school education on a daily basis.
