Jump, Kick, Throw, Touch, Climb, Fly and Run. United in a Mixed Reality sports universe you couldn’t ever imagine. XRS Association is looking to revolutionize sports as we know it.
On Thursday, November 20th, the International Association of Mixed Reality Sports (XRS) is publicly launched in Munich (GER), Helsinki (FIN) and Zurich (CH). Initiated early October by the CEOs and Founders of four pioneering companies in the rapidly growing industry, the world’s first association of its kind is meant to support and grow the meaning of mixed reality sports (XRS).
Technology has become the main driving factor in many areas of our life. In sports, innovation under the term of Sports Tech has led to steady improvements in many fields such as broadcasting, tracking and training, both on the professional and personal level. In recent years this accelerated development has also led to the dawn of a new era in sports where technology and sports intertwine deeper than ever before which makes physical exercise more accessible and fun for everybody and especially more appealing to the younger tech-savvy generation.
In an age where screen time is increasing rapidly while physical activity and sports participation is declining in frightening rates, new forms of sports combine the real world with technology to make physical exercise more attractive, accessible and inclusive for everybody.
