This month has been non-stop preparation. Our team went to Monaco where we presented our system applied to the entertainment (movie) sector. There, people had the chance to demo the product and give us feedback. We also won the MEWS, check out our very original trophy.
After this incredible experience, our team took a plane straight to the States to get ready for AWE XR. We spent an intense couple of days doing 100+ demos, meeting many professionals and XR experts and enjoying all the event had to offer.
EmprendeXXI Awards in Andalusia
15 march 2022
OWO has developed and patented second skin that allows you to feel everything that happens in the metaverse, a video game or a movie, recreating real physical sensations through the sense of touch, thanks to which it has won the EmprendeXXI Awards in March 15th.
The award ceremony took place at CaixaForum Seville, within the framework of the DayOne Innovation Summit Andalusia, and was attended by Rogelio Velasco, counselor of the Regional Government of Andalusia, as well as professionals from the territorial management of CaixaBank and ENISA, among other speakers.
Our Malaga-based start-up, OWO has won the EmprendeXXI Awards in Andalusia, promoted by CaixaBank, through DayOne, its specialized division for technology and innovation companies and their investors, and co-sponsored by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, through ENISA. In Andalusia, the organization of the EmprendeXXI Awards is supported by Andalucía Emprende. The event was attended by Mr. Rogelio Velasco, Minister for Economic Transformation, Industry, Knowledge and Universities of the Regional Government of Andalusia.
At OWO we have developed and patented a second skin that allows you to feel everything that happens in the metaverse, a video game or a movie, recreating real physical sensations through it. This way, OWO can be applied to create new business models in the virtual world, increase tourism and digitalize businesses.
The award includes a cash prize of 6,000 euros, access to specialized international training provided by ESADE and experts from Silicon Valley, which in this edition will take place in Munich (Germany), and the opportunity to participate in the Investors Day EmprendeXXI, a day where they will be in contact with investors and companies interested in collaborating with the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Once again, CaixaBank and ENISA continue promoting and supporting entrepreneurial activity, as well as recognizing the important work carried out by them under the slogan “Become an innovator of the fifteenth edition of the EmprendeXXI Awards”. This 15th edition introduces a change in the name of the awards, renaming them EmprendeXXI Awards to reflect the evolution and adaptation to new needs.
Since its creation in 2007, the program has invested 6.7 million euros in cash prizes and accompanying actions, which have benefited more than 430 companies.
CES 2022, the world’s most influential technology event, is happening Jan. 5-8 in Las Vegas, NV and digitally. OWO is one of the 18 companies selected in the VR/AR cathegory alongside Acer, Lenovo, Canon and HTC.

We also want to give a shoutout to Malaga’s townhall, the Polo Nacional de Contenidos Digitales and Promálaga for their support.
We invite you to come & try OWO with us at booth #15772 in the central hall!
Now your wish can become reality! Your experience will be too real to be true!
This is the reaction of amazement and disbelief of our guest, the famous gaming rapper and YouTuber Kronno Zomber, when he starts feeling the game.
Since the creation of the digital world, which has been booming in these last years, we have been discovering more benefits and uses of technology. A sector that has managed to implant dreams and hopes in the hearts of many. Fascinated with discovering more about it and making it evolve, many companies have started to step into the haptic world.
We didn’t think steps were enough, so we decided to take a leap.
Our haptic vest, which allows you to feel physical sensations while playing, is the result. The technology that we have developed, enables infinite possibilities of sensations. Time flies when you become immersed in the land of video games when using your vision, hearing and touch.
By adding physical sensations to the game, players become more aware of their environment and situation, on a more profound level. This will lead to making very different decisions when playing with the vest, as opposed to without.
Jose Fuertes, founder and CEO of OWO Game expressed this in his own words:
Interacting with the game and with other players in total immersion is only one of the possibilities of this second skin. Reflexes and cognitive skills improve while playing, as your mind reacts more naturally to the physical sensations.
To your surprise, the reality of this game playing will leave you satisfied and fulfilled, as it is as near to a real life experience as possible.
So what’s not to like?
The gaming world is ever-changing and buzzing with innovation. OWO was created to perceive the game in a new and unique way. We want video game players to have a full, vivid experience. Other companies have made you see and hear; we will make you feel. Welcome to the OWO Blog.
