The ARphabet Tour will make presentations in large and not-so-large cities; a great way to develop a market for Magic Leap on the grassroots level.
The ARphabet Tour was prompted by my last minute addition to the ARIA event at MIT next month.
Also, FWIW, I have many years of experience in Singapore, and surely we could arrange some things there, as well as other cities in Asia.
Thank you very much, Magic Leap, for your time and consideration. OnwARd,
