InsideAR Beijing – A Quick Preview

September 4, 2014

InsideAR Beijing present

As with many industries, the Chinese market for AR has been rapidly growing – both in terms of industrial interest and consumer adoption. Looking at Junaio use alone, we have noticed huge surge in usage since it was localized to the Chinese version known as Moyan (or, “Magic Window” in English). It certainly appears that Augmented Reality is gaining traction in the world’s most populace nation. With the newest edition of InsideAR beginning tomorrow, we decided to put together a quick preview of the event:

Expo Floor

The Marriot Beijing City Wall features a large conference hall for our keynote speakers and presentations. With the Expo Hall a quick walk away, you can be sure that you won’t miss any of the action. Demos include Metaio 3D tracking on a automobile, next-gen AR furniture apps, Metaio face tracking and much more.Check out the full demo list and expo floor here.insideAR Beijing expo floor
