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!

Hello again!
It seems scientists are now able to spawn holograms you can touch! No commercial version is yet available, but we do have videos. :)
Kind of a slow week on the XR startups front BUT kudos are due to the Lynx team for achieving their funding goals on kickstarter in just one day! Amazing!
Aside from that, you can also read about the new AR Whales and how the new Facebook+Rayban smartglasses could (or can?) be used to promote our safety!
Do send your feedback, I always reply. 😊 Have a great week and don’t forget to vote for the Auggie Awards!
