The 2019 Augmented Wearables Expo (AWE) took place in sunny Santa Clara, California. This year’s AWE 2019 featured a large “play area” dedicated to entertainment-oriented use cases. With over 7,000 attendees, 250 exhibitors, and 300 speakers, AWE pulled in a large crowd over its three day run. AWE is primarily oriented towards smart glasses hardware and software, though other forms of novel interfaces are included.
