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!

Hey you 😎,
It seems Google is at it again! After being one of the first Big Tech to join the smartglasses space, Google Glasses demise in the consumer market pivoted them to a B2B approach. Still, their purchase of North Focals last year showed they were still thinking about Augmented Reality devices - and now it seems they’re building a full operating system.
Have you heard about Quest Day? It’s a cool showcase of Crazy Quest brand products, it’s worth checking out! Plus great news from Unreal and Unity with free courses and startup acquisitions, an interesting review of Nreal Light smart glasses, data privacy information, mental health support using Virtual Reality, an open-source headset, Bill Gate´s vision on the future of working on the Metaverse, lots of events, an explanation about latency and a great podcast episode to save to your audio player…😮
Are you still with us? Lot´s of content, right?
Spread the word and share this with your friends! 😉
