Virtual & Augmented Reality

We provide you with a list of handpicked stories, best practices, startup showcases and fresh tools to build the Metaverse and the next version of the web!

Hi there,
I’m Luis, your newsletter’s new curator. :) I’m a VR/AR enthusiast for 6 years now and am pretty sure immersive tech will change more than our businesses, jobs or societies - It will change our behaviour, our concepts of privacy, truth, shared spaces, reality and ultimately what it means to be human.
Hope I can share some news and resources to shed some light on this disruption as it unravels.
Help the newbie and share your comments and recommendations through my contacts at the bottom. And meanwhile, have a great week! 😊

In the age of spatial computing all branding must be 3D first.
