Mitsubishi’s kabu.com to present new virtual reality platform VR-STATION
The solution, which aims to provide traders with a new investment style, will be showcased at CEATEC JAPAN 2018.
It has been a while since we have heard anything about online trading companies and virtual reality (VR). Although VR solutions are, without a sign of doubt, an attractive area for such companies, they seem to have been offered by a handful of companies only – notable examples are Swissquote and GMO Click.
That is why, it comes as a nice piece of news that another online trading company – kabu.com Securities Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc (TYO:8306), is pushing into the VR field. The Japanese brokerage has just unveiled its plans to present a new VR solution at CEATEC JAPAN 2018.
CEATEC stands for Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies, aims to facilitate the realization of Society 5.0, the ultra-smart society designed to further economic development and the solution of social problems. The expo will take place from October 16 (Tue) – 19 (Fri), 2018 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at Makuhari Messe, 2-1 Nakase, Mihama-ku, Chiba, Japan.
Kabu.com will exhibit “VR-Station”, a new VR platform which aims to offer a new investment style to traders. The solution harnesses the capabilities of kabu.com’s open API.
VR-Station is a trading room spread over the virtual space. By utilizing virtual space, all the information necessary for trading stocks such as stock price information, charts, boards, news etc. can be displayed in a limited space without being bound by physical constraints. Moreover, the information is updated in real time.
During the exhibition, the broker will conduct a walk-through and will gather comments from potential users of the solution.
