Vision

Computer technology and the internet have dramatically changed how people work, communicate and live. But to date, the communication between people and computer has been trapped in small, square screens.
VR has the power to alter people's lives.

Japan VR Summit aims to gather and connect leaders who attempt to create such a future with their own hands, let us co-create the emerging market.
We are excited for the prospects of a line of products that may alter human history.
