HTC Vive’s $100 million USD global virtual reality (VR)/augmented reality (AR) accelerator program Vive X recently ran three more Demo Days in San Francisco, Shenzhen and Taipei. As with previous events companies exhibited their latest innovations in VR and AR hardware, entertainment, enterprise solutions, and tools and services before an audience of investors, and potential business partners.
The participants were those previously revealed back in November, the latest to join the programme as part of Vive X Batch 3. These included Cloudgate Studio, the developer behind Island 359, Pillow’s Willow VR Studios which created Spark of Light, SpatialStories Creative Suite developer Apelab, and Astral Vision which turns existing amusement park rides into VR attractions
“Vive X is the most active VR and AR investor with over 80 investments in the past two years,” said Marc Metis, Global Head of Vive X at HTC Vive in a statement. “We look forward to bringing Vive X’s unmatched support to Europe’s innovative VR/AR industry and continuing to invest in the next wave of content, services, platforms and hardware.”
