Xperience Plus

Xperience Plus is the first extended-reality framework allowing companies to create 5 senses experiences (smell, touch, taste, audio, video) in multiple applications from real-time to pre-recorded streaming (streaming video-on-demand), from VR to XR contents. .

Its Massive Transformative Purpose is Enabling people to experience unlimited realities

Through its work, X+ establishes collaborations and partnerships with its hardware producers, content creators, companies, media and broadcasting networks, doers and dreamers.

The goal is to create an Open ecosystem for unlimited experiences to connect multiple stakeholders that share the same view and passion of making experiences fully immersive. Our goal is to disrupt the way how citizens consume digital, live, and AR-VR-XR content, moving from the image and audio-only media to full stimuli, including smell, taste, touch, humidity, temperature and more.

Internet of Senses Forum

Ios Forum is an open ecosystem for unlimited experiences.

The ISF goal is to promote the Internet of Senses through various activities, such as: events, webinars, articles, communities, showcases and media coverage.

Furthermore, we are offering our stakeholders the opportunity to generate additional business synergies and opportunities extending the usage of senses in multiple applications.

With the ISF’s success, there will be multiple synergies and opportunities for all stakeholders, in terms of available content, new customer acquisition (sales), and for sure will be an innovative journey for everyone. We are looking for content and application creators, hardware producers (both stimuli collectors and transmitters), advertising &: media companies, doers & dreamers, existing communities and influencers, VR facilities and more.

Join the Internet of Senses Forum

Unveil the future of


Our interaction with e-realities until today has been limited to two dimensions: audio and video.
The recent advancements in the tech development in the area of the HMI has shown the potentiality to introduce additional senses, like smells, active & passive touch, and tastes.
This is the Internet of Senses.

Another big disruption, moreover, is represented by Brain-Computer Interfaces.
What will be the impact for the end-user: how we will change the way we can interact with the new contents?


The further we advance in the exploration of the e-realities, the thinner becomes the veil that divides them, and the various realities will be soon overlapped layers with some points of contacts, as for example, Cross realities and the Spatial Web.

We will be able to explain concept in real-life using Augmented Reality assets, empower our communication with multi-realities assets, and we can even imagine to move assets between realities (i.e.: trans-realities digital assets).


Imagine your simplest webpage able to transmit smells, touch and tastes. What will imply for your business?
Imagine your favorite TV series capable of delivering the same level of stimuli… 

The Internet of Senses will disrupt most of the industries, starting from the online experiences, Streaming Video on Demand, virtual travels, events, matches, gaming and more.

The level of complexity of the information we are able to transmit will not be only audio & video, but it will evolve to cover 5 senses stimuli.


How we, as physical being, will address the various realities? Will we hide ourselves in digital realities by fleeing from the physical one?

Or will we refuse to live in multiple realities? Or will we delegate to AI some aspects of life in different realities?

What will be ethical and moral framework for the new realities? How will our language and habits reflect these changes?

Singularity University

'VR is dead' is one of the biggest myths out there, usually perpetuated by referencing forecast consumer sales of headsets that failed to meet expectations. Why don't we take a data-driven approach? Instead of relying on future predictions, let's look back at the past hundred years and see how long it took other technologies to be adopted - and how virtual reality compares.

Bio: Jeremy is the author of Reality Check: How Immersive Technologies Can Transform Your Business, a book that anyone can pick up to gain an understanding of how virtual reality and augmented reality are being used in businesses all over the world. He also leads PwC’s XR team, helping clients across all industries successfully implement these technologies.
He has featured in The Financial Times, The Economist, the BBC, and other media outlets. He has worked with organizations like the World Economic Forum and currently sits on the advisory board of Immerse UK to support businesses interested in immersive technologies.

More details soon.

In this keynote, I discuss the future of immersive technologies. Notably, I lay the case for why Virtual Reality has little future compared to the other amazing technologies emerging over past months. I introduce a few of such novel technologies, such as 5G/6G, and – how in combination with edge-cloud rendering and AI – it will revolutionise the way we interact and engage. An example application is also given, i.e. the Internet of Skills we are pioneering at King’s which will democratise talent the same way as the Internet has democratised information.

Bio: Mischa Dohler is full Professor in Wireless Communications at King’s College London, driving cross-disciplinary research and innovation in technology, sciences and arts. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Royal Society of Arts (RSA), the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET); and a Distinguished Member of Harvard Square Leaders Excellence. He is a serial entrepreneur with 5 companies; composer & pianist with 5 albums on Spotify/iTunes; and fluent in 6 languages. He sits on the Spectrum Advisory Board of Ofcom, and acts as policy advisor on issues related to digital, skills and education. He has had ample coverage by national and international press and media. He is featured on Amazon Prime.

Mischa Dohler

We all enjoy 5 human senses in everyday life: we drink aromatic coffee, caress our pets, feel rain on our faces and inhale beautiful scent of rose bouquet. But what if we can transmit these senses over oceans to reach dearest people miles away?
This is not a sci-fi theory, this is happening now! Thanks to the modern technologies (which someone may call futuristic) we are able not only transmit senses, but also have an embodiment experience to feel fully the world around us.
In his talk, Fabrizio will share his vision about the Internet of Senses and its application to extend our physical reality to unlimited ones and the importance of stimuli-transmition for people with physical limitations.

Bio: currently serves as Founder and CEO of Xperience Plus a startup with the goal of allowing people of experience unlimited realities removing all the geographical, economical and physical barriers.
He is the local Singularity University Chapter leader, and Exponential Organization consultant, a well-known speaker and a TEDx speaker. His professional interests are AI, human-machine interaction (HCI) and Artificial Empathy (AE),emotional and behavioral analysis, and I’m a big fan of bio-hacking and human augmentation.

Admittedly, it is not easy to find a definition of creativity. There are many aspects that should be considered and illuminated.
What makes a creative person?
What a creative product?
Is there an ideal creative environment?
Creativity manifests itself in many ways and makes it difficult to agree on a universal definition or explanation.Those who, like me, strive for a more holistic approach will appreciate the work of Mel Rhodes, founder of the 4P definition of creativity.To this day it can be deduced that his original model is still valid from a conceptual and structural point of view and can be regarded as "a system that enables researchers and scientists to study smaller, manageable units of the complex concept of creativity". I use his model to reflect on the question: How will the future of the Creative Person, Product, Process & Press change human-human communication?

Bio: Jutta has documented, tested and optimised her creative abilities, thought processes and approaches over many years, and during this time she has constantly learned new methods and strategies and developed them further for her counselling concept, so that she can now advise clients on how they can recognise, release, activate and train their own creativity or that of their team.

Jutta Schweiger

Omnivergence, a term coined by myself as inspired by the work of Richard Buckminster Fuller, is an attempt to explain why and how through the evolution, from Atari games to the latest VR game, there seems to be a clue as to where we are headed. Technologies collide, merge, emerge, diverge and converge. The world as a representation is the stage.

Bio:Microsoft Certified Systems Engineering at Miami-Dade Community College (today Miami Dade College), Cisco Certified Network Associate from the University of Murcia (Spain), Pre-MBA (Executive Management Program) at Nebrija University (Spain), Ongoing online studies on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning at The University of Helsinki (Finland), PMP Candidate. Member of the Google Glass pioneering team outside the United States, for a company called Droiders, then renamed Streye (now extinct). CEO of Glassters, Inc. (US-based software engineering company).
In 2018, Frank went solo and co-founded AIGaze with Hong Kong investors in order to create within Europe a specific software for smartglasses, for the Chinese market. It only lasted a few months due to the political unrest in Hong Kong, in mid-2019. In late 2019, Frank founded Spain-based Event Horizon Technologies, working on the AR-VR-MR field and also becoming a Google Glass 2 authorized hardware reseller, to these days.

Imagine a world and workplace free of physical and geographic limitations. A world in which we can give our loved ones a hug and kiss goodnight despite being away on the front-lines of battle, or being quarantined during a Global Pandemic.
In his aspiring talk, Richard will explore why we don't yet possess the capacity to provide a fully immersive and complete sensory communication experience that integrates a full sensory experience for everybody.
