Past Event

VR Hub Tokyo Vol. #6 | VR / AR / MR

October 10th 2018 at 7:00pm - Impact HUB Tokyo

On October the 10th, the VR Hub Tokyo meet-up is back! Following on from our VR Hub Tokyo #5, where we had our best attendance yet, we've got some great talks and demos lined up for you. 

We'll be kicking off with a quick update on the state of VR and AR including some interesting news from around the globe. Then we've got some great talks, including a technical talk on creating MR experiences with Babylon.js from Takayuki Fujiwara. This is followed by a talk from Chris Murray, a Director in AX-ON's Innovation Department, on the importance of educating brands on VR. It's one not to miss!

This event we've listened to your feedback and have changed up the format slightly. We've changed up the agenda to allow for much more time for you all to relax and network. If networking isn't really your thing, don't worry, we should have some great demos for you to try out too.

As usual, we'll have a limited amount of lightning talk slots available so if you'd like to take the stage, we'll give you 1-minute to introduce yourself and promote something. If you're looking for a job, looking to hire, looking to collaborate or are simply new in town then get in touch with us and let us know.

As always, a quick shout out to Impact Hub Tokyo for being the venue sponsor for this event. If you're looking for a co-working or event space space in Tokyo, give them a shout. We don't think you'll be disappointed.

Want to be our food and drink sponsor? Get in touch.

Welcoming And Opening Remarks


How to make Windows Mixed Reality applications with Babylon.js Babylon.js is a great 3D graphic library for HTML5. It’s a famous library in oversea but not in Japan. It’s available for not only console but also typical VR devices. I’ll talked about the feature and how to make Windows Mixed Reality applications with BJS.

Lightning Talks

Lightning Talks are 1-minute time slots open to anyone. If you have a project you'd like to shout about; are looking for a collaborator; simply want to introduce yourself; or anything else related to the spirit of the event, simply let us know and we'll give you a slot and share any details afterwards through our meet-up page, website and social media. Remember to let us know before the event!
