Modern advancements in sensor technology are enabling the ability to physically feel the virtual world, throw a virtual ball, or even literally reach out to a loved one all with your bare hands- no gloves or wearables needed. This dream of digitizing touch has been attempted for half a century, but by focusing on creating a new language of touch in the metaverse, see how this young team of immigrants has built a product that could be a new standard of how we connect across distance and time. “Sly is a first generation American entrepreneur whose journey is deeply influenced by his work in developing countries, passion for frontier technologies, and quest to have a net positive impact in this world and others.  He is co-founder & CEO of Emerge, an LA based company building a new paradigm for human connection and interaction at a time when society is reaching the limits of social technologies. Emerge’s first product aims to create a new standard for digital communication that incorporates sight, sound, and a new language of touch in the metaverse (imagine a virtual high five, but without gloves or wearables).  He is a Forbes 30 Under 30 class of 2018 recipient, Co-chair for the World Economic Forum Global Future Council for AR/VR, and can be found surfing the coast of southern California some mornings. More at www.emerge.io AI,Augmented Reality,Communication,Empathy,Entrepreneur,Gaming,Neuroscience,Startups  ” Sly Spencer Lee Co-Founder & CEO at Emerge Sly is a first generation American entrepreneur whose journey is deeply influenced by his work in developing countries, passion for frontier technologies, and quest to have a net positive impact in this world and others.
