Innovators will soon have a new own awards night. The first-ever Immersive Tech Awards, dubbed the Immys, will be held during the Immersive Technology Summit 2010 in Los Angeles on October 21.

Organizer ImTech, a new Los Angeles-based non-profit think tank, will give out awards in five categories: arts/entertainment, research/education, health sciences, communication, and interface.

"Right off the bat, the Immy Awards make several powerful statements about immersive technology today," ImTech CEO Nathan Makino said. "First, they testify to the remarkable diversity within immersive technologies C and we all recognize that we're still in the early going. They also showcase the stature of those driving these technologiesindividuals and organizations that are at once global and local, entrepreneurial and of the enterprise. We encourage everyone to check out the finalists onlineand vote."

Among the nominees are film directors James Cameron and Peter Jackson, Sony's PlayStation Move controller, Honda Robotics' Walking Assist device, DVE Immersion Room, CyberGloveSystems, and the Neurosky Mindset brain-computer interface.
