XR Nights #7 - Looking to the future of VR

February 27th 2019 at 7:00pm - Impact HUB Tokyo

English | 日本語

We’re back for our first event of 2019! And we’ve got a new name and one of our best line ups yet. Formerly VR Hub Tokyo we decided to change the name to something that better represents the VR, AR and MR technologies we’ve been showcasing. We feel XR Nights will better represent what we’re all about as an event and a community.

This event inaugural XR Nights event will feature two great speakers both of whom are working uniquely on the cutting edge of the VR industry:

Founder and CEO of Symmetry Dimensions Inc. Shogo Numakura is a name that fast became recognised and respected in the international VR community since its renaissance began back in 2014. He’ll be talking to us about the current state of XR (VR / AR / MR); how it will evolve with forthcoming technologies such as 5G and IoT sensor devices, AI and Edge Computing; and what we can expect to see this year. He’ll also have a hands on demo of his architectural VR design tool Symmetry VR for you to try out for yourself.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to control things with your mind? Then you won’t want to miss Associate Professor at Shibaura Institute of Technology, Ryota Horie’s talk on using Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) in VR. Learn how Horie and his team have applied BCI technology to VR and MR games and live concert experiences. Increase your powers in games by focusing your mind or have a visual effects at a concert evolve as your excitement increases. Learn all about this and don’t miss the chance to try it out for yourself.

We’re also currently working on booking in more demos for you to get hands on with. We’ll keep you updated as we get confirmations!

As always, there’ll be food and drinks available for all attending. Pre-pay now at for just ¥1,000, that’s a 50% discount on the walk in price. You can also pre-pay through our Doorkeeper events page. Tickets are limited so book early to ensure your place.

We look forward to seeing you February 27th at The Impact Hub in Meguro. Doors open at 19:00.



私たちがこれまで紹介してきたVR、AR、そしてMRの技術に合った呼び方にするため、これまでのVR Hub Tokyoという団体名を変えることにしました。

私たちのミートアップ、VR、AR、MRの起業家、デザイナー、デベロッパー、そしてXRが大好きな人たちに向けて、新しい団体名”XR Night"を紹介いたします。

XR Night初のイベントでは、最新のVR業界で働いている2人の素晴らしいスピーカーに講演いただきます。

Symmetry Dimensions Inc. Founderの沼倉正吾氏(Shogo Numakura)は、2014年の同社設立以来、国際的なVRコミュニティで広く知られています。沼倉氏には、来たるべき次の技術である5G、IoTセンサーデバイス、AI、エッジコンピューティングと一緒に、XR(VR/AR/MR)がどのように進化していくのか、我々は2019年にどのような期待が持てるのかについて、ご講演いただきます。

同時に、Symmetry Dimensions Inc.の建築向けVRデザインツールであるSymmetry VRのハンズオンデモも展示いいただきます。

頭の中で思った通りにコントロールできたらいいなと思ったことはありませんか? もしそうならば、芝浦工業大学の堀江亮太 准教授(Ryota Horie) のVR内でのブレイン・コンピュータ・インターフェース(BCI)に関する講演は見逃せないでしょう。


いつもの通り、当日は軽食とお飲物を準備いたします。 から事前支払いいただきますと、50%オフの¥1,000で入場いただけます。
