Related to XR

About This Consortium

XR is the general term for fields like virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality in which technology works on reality. Through the speedy evolution of related technology and devices, many companies including start-ups and large corporations are entering the XR field, so new applications of XR are being brought forth every day. Within that situation, this Consortium acts as Japan’s representative XR (VR/AR/MR) industrial group and is a point of contact both within and outside of Japan. Its mission is to contribute to the development of the XR industry, connect those within and outside of the industry like never before, and to build a strong ecosystem.
