3DRUDDER

3DRUDDER, the revolutionary foot-powered gaming and VR motion controller, used while seated

SUNDAY MARCH 12 10am - 18pm Aisle 3 – Booth 1325

3dRudder is the name of our company, and the name of our two products – the 3dRudder Original with a USB connection, and the 3dRudder Wireless with Bluetooth connectivity. 3dRudder foot-powered controllers provide the most intuitive and natural way to move in virtual reality and 360° environments, whether you’re immersed in a your favorite existing game, a CAD software program, or a B2B venture in travel, health care, real estate or other vertical market exploring the potential of VR.

Stanislas CHESNAIS CEO EU: +33 (0)7 77 95 49 31 US: +1 929-341-8126 [email protected]

From the time we learn to walk, the human psychomotor system is trained to use the feet for propulsion. It is natural to manage balance and to associate it with movement. This is precisely what the 3dRudder emulates, and the reason why it feels so natural to use the feet for movement in virtual reality. If you are planning on deploying a VR or a 3D application, think movement first. 3dRudder lets you move naturally the way you’re used to through those emerging virtual worlds. 3dRudder is a privately held company, headquartered in Marseille, France, with US offices in New York.

SUPRALIVE® by AUGMENTED ACOUSTICS, the first tailor-made HD sound solution for live concerts spectators AUGMENTED ACOUSTICS ambition is to revolutionize live concert experience for spectators, as SUPRALIVE® unique technology allows them to benefit from an unprecedented immersive, customizable and multitrack sound experience (24bits, 96 kHz, 118 dB dynamic, floating point processing), within their personal taste and hearing profile. To benefit from the SUPRALIVE® option within a concert, spectators will be equipped with top-of-therange earphones (the start-up works in partnership with BOSE), the PEEBLE®, a housing which contains the intelligence of the system (radio receiver, signalprocessing algorithms, resynchronization system to avoid echo effects and the perceived gap between “physical” air sound and the one heard through the earphones) and a mobile application. During the concert, the mobile application provides users the capability to control in real time the music general volume but also each instrument volume separately (up to 8 tracks), the tone, the balance and to configure their own equalizers. Through SUPRALIVE®, the French start-up targets both fans, tech-savvy music lovers, unsatisfied hearingprotection users, and certain hearing-impaired profiles, provides the profession the opportunity to offer an innovative and qualitative music experience to the audience and finally a new revenue stream for venues, event agencies, producers and artists.

MONDAY MARCH 13 10am - 18pm Aisle 3 – Booth 1325

Headline: The ORA-X is the future of headphones and a new product category – Smart Headphones – running Android – with high quality audio – and a retractable see-through display. Targeting music lovers on the go, the ORA-X is a brand new category, an Android powered smart AR headphone.

Khaled SARAYEDDDINE CTO Cel.: +33 (0)6 64 44 66 96 [email protected]

The ORA-X enables a new experience in mobile entertainment. Not only can you hear music, but you can ‘see music’. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. As a standalone Android computer and a stylish pair of high-end headphones, the ORA-X will allow never before seen mobile entertainment applications such as watching music videos, mobile gaming, AR, and much more. It will take headphones to the next level! Imagine watching music videos and news clips on the go, playing casual games (like Pokemon GO), recording and sharing video on social media, getting notifications, AR navigation, all while listening to your favorite songs. Traditional headphones can give you high quality audio but their functionality hasn’t evolved much beyond that for the past 30 years. The ORA-X takes this experience much further by adding vision and computing. This is a new and compelling user experience and this revolutionary device could mean the end of the “regular” headset. Why just hear when you can see?

WYKER MONDAY MARCH 13 10am - 18pm Aisle 3 – Booth 1325

Morgane CANASTRA Co-founder & CEO Cel.: +33 (0)7 88 86 37 47 [email protected]

WYKER is the first mobile application that recommends you musical events matching your musical profile thanks to artificial intelligence. WYKER also integrates social and community features that transform the application into a real social network around live music. Who hasn’t missed out on a gig of their favorite artist because they weren’t aware of it? Who wasn’t left disappointed when discovering a new artist, and hearing that he already gave a nearby concert a few weeks ago? We are literally overwhelmed by thousands of information available in the media, everyday. Selection algorithms of social networks make it challenging for us to learn about all the musical news that could potentially interest us. A solution exists, the WYKER mobile app. WYKER gives users recommendations of musical events based on their preferences, due to artificial intelligence that analyzes their musical profile. Users can also select their geographical area to hear about suggested events close by. More than 4000 concerts and festivals are permanently referenced on the application and each one benefits from a dedicated page that turns into a sharing community when the event is in progress. Users, themselves have the opportunity to locate music events and share their photos with the community, but also invite their friends. Their activity is rewarded by a gamification system allowing them to win Wykepoints which they will use in the partner network that WYKER is developing. Users can also purchase their tickets directly via the application and add events that interest them on their calendar integrated in the WYKER application. The app is available on the App Store and French Google Play and aims to expand into the US market from May of 2017. Download the WYKER app on Google Play and App Store to know all SxSW events matching your musical profile and your localization!
