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’s a numbers game and this edition is filled to the brim with them!
Facebook, Accenture and Bank of America are going big into the Metaverse and the new XR glasses features tell us they won’t be the last - HTC’s approach to a light VR headset is closing in on consumers.
A highlight also on VR for Sustainable Development Goals, a platform leveraging 360 videos to push the UN’s agenda and impact society. Simple and sweet.
