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!

Suddenly, it seems Avatars and Digital Humans took over as the main subtopic of the Metaverse. VRChat, Beem, Soul Machines, Epic and more are presenting new, exciting ways to generate our digital selves. Let’s see how that fares.
