Here some are some of my favorite new exhibitors:
Technicolor works with filmmakers and production companies across film, advertising, and gaming to tell their stories in the new frontier – putting the consumer inside a story, not just in front of a story.

Liminal VR's team of neuroscientists and psychologists have been working with their development and creative team to create short virtual reality experiences designed to induce and augment emotional and cognitive states in users. The Liminal VR Energy/Calm experience will quickly induce a heightened state of ‘energy’ then greatly reduce the level of arousal to calm the user.
