ORI INBAR at “Flying Into The Metaverse Through Books & Culture” – AWE (Augmented World Expo)

At the end of every AWE event I’m lucky enough to attend, I always ask Ori Inbar for an interview with some juicy teasing of what the next AWE event will be. In this case also talked about how the AWE EU 2022 event was, about the XR PRIZE CHALLENGE: FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE, what awaits us for AWE 2023 (which will take place on May 31st, June 1st and 2nd 2023 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California).
Ori also talked about his AWE Team and how proud he is of them. I also asked him for ten words to describe AWE and how important humor is in the XR world.

Watch this interview, because it’s really funny… (there’s also a “secret” video of Ori, which I recorded while he didn’t notice!)
