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 🖐🏼,
Welcome back! In our weekly roundup, you will find some news about CES 2022. It was supposed to be a big event with news, but due to COVID, most of the audience was online, but still with some good news.
Also, Meta has cancelled a major project where it was developing an Operating System for its headsets, HTC launches a wrist tracker to use with the Vive Focus 3, and bHpatics is launching a new haptic glove for VR.
More Metaverse news, of course, but also good child safety practices, an explanation about AR Cloud, some upcoming events, we also introduce Cas and Charry and to wrap up, a good choice of the immersive podcast.
Have fun! 😎
