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!

Hello there! 🖐️
This week we bring news about an app by Amazon that uses Augmented Reality for retail. A few days ago, another Apple WWDC event took place and after a long year of expectations, unfortunately, no smart glasses were released. But it was an event with many signs that the foundations are being laid for immersive application development.
Microsoft has announced the departure of Alex Kipman from the Hololens team and this could be a problem for the company. We also have an interesting article that talks about the World Economic Forum’s Metaverse Initiative.
Meta plans for new hardware, funding opportunities for XR startups, news about hardware for XR, events, podcasts, data privacy and much more in this week!
Stay tuned! 😎
