Community July 19, 2021

Aleissia Laidacker, The Mills Global Director of Creative Technology has been recognised as the Top 50 voices in XR by industry expert and pioneer Avi Bar-Zeev. The San Francisco based expert says the list is inspired by the people who bring fresh, original thinking to the field of Spatial Computing aka XR/AR/VR/MR. They may not market themselves as “influencers” or “visionaries” or even count their followings. You may not yet know their names. But when they speak, we should always listen, because they’re likely sharing something important that we haven’t heard before.
