In October 2020, Zappar hit their Kickstarter campaign target for All-new ZapBox (our next generation affordable mix reality headset) surpassing their $75k stretch goal following a fantastic response from the community.

Join Zappar’s Chief R&D Officer (Simon Taylor) and CEO (Caspar Thykier) as they discuss Zappar’s journey in Mixed Reality with ZapBox from its inception five years ago to the present day. They’ll also be showcasing the final designs for the new active controllers for the first time during this session and talking about the exciting future opportunities for ZapBox in both MR and VR.
