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 using XR!

This week the Metaverse was rocked by (unconfirmed) news of Hololens 3 demise and the (very much confirmed) death of Firefox Reality, the first WebXR browser we heard about and its ressurection as Wolvic. While we test it, do let us know if you’re going to SXSW, the Polys or Foo Fighters VR concert - maybe we can have a digital Daiquiri together!
