Chicken-Waffle & Centertec Win Best in Show, VR at the AWE 2019 Auggie Awards.
The world’s #1 AR/VR/XR conference, the Augmented World Expo, celebrated an amazing 10-year anniversary last week, and Chicken Waffle debuted a cool new competitive multiplayer VR eSports game in an awesome XR arena by CENTERTEC!
This year’s AWE proved to be the biggest and most experiential expo to date with 7,000+ attendees, 250+ exhibitors, 300+ speakers, and over 100,000 square feet on the expo floor. Cutting-edge hardware covered the expo floor, with AR/VR experiences in every corner!
With some of the largest companies in the VR/AR/MR space exhibiting at AWE, smaller companies need something special to stand out in the crowd. That’s one reason Chicken Waffle – an established yet indie XR content development studio from Austin, TX, and CENTERTEC – a Location Based VR trailblazer based out of Philadelphia, PA, partnered up to provide exceptional experiences for AWE attendees. Plus, free candy and toys!
To highlight the appeal of a well-designed shared space for VR experiences, Chicken Waffle & CENTERTEC built an amazing 30×60 XR arena in the center of the XR Playground! Specially designed event lighting, music, TV’s, and over 30 of the latest hardware headsets!
