WHAT IS THE

XR SAFETY AWARENESS WEEK?

The XR Safety Awareness Week is an annual event powered by XRSI which is both a celebration of the many different facets of XR, and an opportunity for individuals, organizations, policymakers, and institutions to find a platform for promoting ideas and thought leadership which will guide us towards a safer future with XR technologies. While Getting Into XR might seem as straightforward as putting on a HMD or holding up a phone to view Augmented Reality (AR) content, cultivating a sense of awareness is imperative.

This week is to encourage everyone to get into XR “with Awareness”, independent of the use case platform or experience.

WHY

XR SAFETY AWARENESS WEEK?

By dedicating this five day event around various themes, XRSI intends to create a reflection point on safety and trust aspects of immersive technologies. This is necessary to address the need for awareness around the technological risks this holiday season due to expected increase in the purchase of latest XR devices, platforms, experiences, and games.

The foundation of the XR Safety Awareness Week is “safety” for the simple reason safety is of critical importance when exploring amazing innovations of XR to remain mindful of the implications that come with those concepts.

Each year before the holidays, XRSI will promote this time of the year to ensure that we engage with XR technology with safety at the forefront.

THE

WEEK

For five consecutive days,

December 7th through December 11th,

XR stakeholders and experts are encouraged to organize XR-related events or take part in events organized by XRSI, share their knowledge, creations, and achievements with the world through panels, live streams, content releases, virtual events, networking opportunities, and more.

You can choose from various themes or different core aspect of XR Safety: Child Safety, Medical XR, Diversity & Inclusion, and Media & Art while keeping privacy and trust at the forefront throughout the week.
