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 👋🏼,
Another week passed by with lots of great news about the immersive market. It´s quite impressive the amount of invested startups in the past weeks/months.
Thanks to the metaverse fever, startups that are developing technologies related not only to immersive technologies such as Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality but also to online platforms and payments, have received spectacular funding.
In this week’s digest, we bring some articles that talk about investments in startups, acquisitions, articles about data privacy and how we should be aware of the risks involved for children.
Also, we noticed a rise in the amount of funds and investment support for entrepreneurs, that justifies adding a new section, XR FUNDING. Who knows, it might help you to get funded…😉
Good luck!
