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!

Hey everyone,
Hope everything’s great with you, despite the grey clouds over Europe’s skies. Defence Startup Ajna Lens just secured a Series A and that seems to pick up as a trend.
The Metaverse is being built each day and, be it the vision of Meta’s CEO or Marco Magnano’s, we hope this merge between physical and digital helps us create a safer, interconnected and peaceful world.
Great news from Niantic about the incorporation of 8th Wall! This is great for WebAR!
And as usual, news about headsets, events, podcasts and much more…
Have a nice weekend! 🙂
