ReVolution #Research >>> Deadline: 22 January 2023

The future of immersive technologies is here!

The ReVolution #Research competition focuses on Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality from a research perspective. This competition is open to all research laboratories, universities and/or corporate research departments experimenting with XR for their future applications and solutions. Made up of the sector’s leading scientists and professionals, the jury has been awarding prizes to the most ground-breaking VR/AR projects since 2006.


Projects must be innovative and ground-breaking, whether in terms of the technology itself or how it is used. Projects must have been developed in the context of immersive tech-based research. 14 projects will be selected by a jury of sector experts.

Exhibit for free

The best projects are cherry-picked by a jury of international professionals and scientists and platformed within the event via free exhibitor space.

Win an award

The ReVolution #Research competition rewards the most ground-breaking projects. Over the course of the exhibition, you’ll be in with a chance of winning an award in your category, plus a trip to the States to exhibit at SIGGRAPH!



The Human Mountainification Project

In this project, the person whose hand “becomes a mountain avatar” and the manipulator elicit each other’s reactions through the mountain avatar. This will create a new era of avatar communication with the addition of the sense of touch. During the experience, the role of the mountain wears a device on his right hand that can feel temperature and vibration sensations. In addition, a model of a mountain is placed on his hand, and projection mapping is performed
