Each slice offers a unique and enthralling experience.
Imagine stepping into a realm of virtuality, where Cloud Gaming takes you to alternate dimensions, and Video Surveillance and Analytics read gender, age, and even vehicle license plates. Unleash your creativity with Augmented Reality (AR) using Hololens 2 devices for remote assistance, education, and even Webex hologram applications. Dive deep into Virtual Reality (VR) through Oculus Quest 2 devices, experiencing multiplayer games and exploring real estate, health, and lifestyle in a metaspace of endless possibilities. And if that’s not enough, robotic marvels roam, performing tasks from deliveries to guiding guests with flair and charm.
