Welcome to the XR era

We’re about to see the largest transformation in human history. Virtual, augmented and mixed reality (together “extended reality” or “XR”) are set to disrupt enterprise across nearly aspect of modern life, including healthcare, retail, marketing, manufacturing, engineering, training and education.

There are now over two billion AR-enabled devices in the world. You probably have one in your hand right now. Over the next few years, we will experience a major shift in human communication from 2D to 3D as we move from mobile phone devices to wearable glasses technologies. At MetaVRse, we’re building the web-based engine that will make it possible for everyone to create content for this emerging medium.

Virtual Reality (VR)

Virtual reality is an artificial digital environment that completely replaces the real world. When you put on a VR headset, everything you see has been generated by a computer. However, the concept is becoming increasingly complex and nuanced as the boundaries between virtual reality and augmented reality blur, and the two modes merge at various points of the “immersive spectrum.”

Augmented Reality (AR)

Augmented reality is the overlay of digital content on top of your current view of the real world. This can either be experienced through wearable “smart glasses,” or mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. While there are currently many companies actively developing AR wearables, but the technology is still evolving. As a result, the most pervasive AR applications are those designed for handheld devices.

Mixed Reality (MR)

Mixed reality enables you to interact with and manipulate both physical and virtual items and environments, using next-generation sensing and imaging technologies. It provides the ability to mash the real world together with imaginary places, breaking down basic concepts between real and imaginary, offering an experience that can change the way you communicate.
