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!
This week, our hero is an entrepreneur who failed - and by failing and sharing about it with all of us, she grows and challenges us to grow together with her. :)
Success stories like Pimax, Harbour City Labs or Admix are important and we also showcase them below, but all success springs from failing again and again…That’s why I find failure stories particularly inspiring, alongside the efforts from social impact professionals to drive XR for Good.
Well, but enough about me - if you’re at Websummit, do let me know, as we might be able to have dinner together (check events). 😊 Have a great week and don’t forget to check the podcast - powerful stuff!
