XR Gloves, Haptics & beyond – Here the VIDEO of the AWE Nite Florence event

“XR Gloves, Haptics & Beyond” was one of the most interesting events that Antony Vitillo and I have organized among all the AWE Nite Florence (it was held on November 17th, 2022).

I admit that over the past few months, I being overwhelmed by the exuberance of what AI-powered softwares has allowed us to accomplish. AI has rapidly entered many sectors of culture (art and literature, just to mention those most involved by the changes) and has destabilized everyone.
So, it was necessary to follow how this wave was growing (and continues to grow)

This is the reason why I publish with a few weeks late the article with the video of one of the most interesting and most successful AWE Nite Florence of 2022. My apologize for this delay!!!

The event took place in November 2022, and the expert panelists were: JOE MICHAELSASHLEY HUFFMANGUIDO GIOIOSO.
