The ARphabet Tour is a direct result of the Bubiko Orwell Tour of Southeast Asia, which took place from 2016-18. Being on the road constantly is both extremely rewarding and extremely challenging.

The following are the organizations and companies that kept us going; they are lights that kept the darkness from defeating us. As for the individuals, I am still thinking of how I can ever thank  them all.

Please at least skim through this list, and click on as many as you can. They are all good people offering great value in their respective fields.

For now, links and short descriptions; the  behind-the-scenes stories will appear in Alphabet Spikes.

ARphabet Tour: The AR Aspect

All of the sections of the ARphabet Tour are explained here.

The ARphabet Tour has three platforms; the Mango Sticky Rice Experience, the Readings/Workshops Dimension and Augmented Reality. All three are related; yet all are separate.The AR presentation, for example, will only be about AR.

In 2018, Stephen Black gave two workshops and three presentations, plus several "semi-official presentations.

This blog post contains a summary of the topics presented at the Hong Kong PolyU workshops and presentations. For the upcoming ARphabet Tour presentations, the topics will be tailored to meet the interests of the organizations involved.

2019 Presentation: Bubiko and the Unicorn ARIA @ MIT

This talk shares the results of a two year digital nomad research tour which resulted in data bases of AR-related information as well as Southeast Asian food. Additionally, ideas on a "theoretical" AR-based unicorn are presented.

The ARphabet Tour starts on January 14/15 with ARIA (Augmented Reality in Action)at MIT, near Boston. Then New York City, Washington DC, Rochester New York, Toledo, Detroit, Ann Arbor Chicago, Austin (SXSW) and San Francisco(GDC)

As I write this, on January 1, there are no definite dates, but Rochester is likely in February. Wherever you are, let's talk and plan. Although professional and corporate possibilities may be part of the tour; its primary function is to create a network of people who would like to see AR used for entertainment and education.

Simply, get in touch and we will do our best to bring the ARphabet to you and your organization.
