We, the co-authors of poimo, are all very proud of this award. Considering a better way to demonstrate our work for UIST that took place online for the first time due to the COVID-19 pandemic led to the award. We believe our research will enhance the freedom of mobility and help achieve an inclusive society where diverse people can join cultural and economic activities. We will keep on working on proof-of-concept experiments for  improvement and commercialization of our technology.
