Hey,
We are back! Glad to meet you here…😉
This week’s digest brings you some predictions about what the metaverse will be like in a few years. We present an article on how Airbus is using Virtual Reality to sell private jets, the World Economic Forum’s initiative to define and create a viable, safe and inclusive metaverse and a survey where it is possible to see that people despite not knowing about it, have an interest in the metaverse.
We also bring a very interesting directory of XR use cases in large companies around the world, investments in startups, and also new headsets from PicoVR, Pimax, Campfire and Playstation. Not to mention the usual XR for Good articles, podcasts, event recommendations, the “hero” of the week and the “word” of the week. Do you know what AR Cloud is? Then you should check out our recommended article…
See you next week! 🖐️
