Noitom Hosts Japan XR Hackathon for Humanitarian Action

Following in last year's tradition, this year we are hosting anothe rJapan Hackathon. The Japan XR Hackathon takes places throughout Japan, with its main headquarters in Tokyo, from June 24-25. The 30-hour Japan XR Hackathon welcomes any participants interested in working with VR, AR and MR, together referred to as XR. Entry into the hackathon is free and will be on a first come, first serve basis. Equipment will be provided by the hackathon as well as refreshments and internet access. The ultimate goal of the Japan XR Hackathon is to create a complete XR experience that can be showcased to the public and used in real-life emergency scenarios that require humanitarian aid. During the hackathon, Noitom will also officially launch their much-anticipated, Hi5 VR Glove. The gloves were first announced earlier this year during CES in Las Vegas. Since then, Noitom has continued to develop the gloves from their original prototype version, including improving the design and capabilities. Participants of the hackathon will be among the very first to create content using the Hi5 VR Glove. Noitom will host the event alongside SVVR and Panora VR. Space is still available for the Japan XR Hackathon. To register, please visit: https://vrhackathon.co/en/
