On July 14th I had the honor of speaking with the Immersive Tech Africa meet-up members, hosted by Arome Ibrahim, the founder of Immersive Tech Africa, and other members of the African XR network. Arome is based in Lagos, Nigeria and is working hard to bring XR to Africa and is especially interested in XR for Real Estate and the use of Proptech to create new opportunities for African companies. It was a great opportunity to share my insights into the use of XR for real estate and to make some great new friends. Prof. Eugene Ohu, who this week received a huge grant of $234,000 to pursue research on the impact of XR for Education from the Templeton World Charity Foundation, also spoke about his work. Prof. Ohu is the senior Lecturer and Director of the Virtual Human Computer Interaction Lab at Lagos Business School. Other speakers included Priscilla Koukoui, founder of OviSquare, based in Sydney, Australia, Dale Deacon who is the R&D Director of EPIC: Research and Development in Johannesburg South Africa and a Guest Lecturer at the University of Johannesburg, and Onyinye Enyioha, Founder of TotalView, a real estate virtual tour platform that looked great during the presentation. I look forward to staying in touch with everyone as we keep growing the XR community around the world!
