Extended Reality (XR) engines play an important role in enabling metaverse to be an enthralling virtual experience. They help create immersive and engaging three dimensional environments for the metaverse.
This hands-on workshop explores the pieces that make up the building blocks of the metaverse in its physical and operational form that then structures the metaverse experiences.
What is XR?
It’s short for Extended Reality, a related set of new technologies that are changing the way we interact with the world and with each other: Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Mixed Reality. The metaverse refers to the ecosystem revolving around XR.
To understand XR and its ecosystem, we need to understand the technologies that enable it. When we understand these enabling technologies; how they are used, and what their future holds, we’ll be well equipped to deal with XR ecosystems as it rapidly evolves and converges.
In the 21 sessions of the Metaverse Series, we will present and share XR/Metaverse ecosystem in 3 aspects:
Using a broadly chronological approach, we will focus on how all of the underlying technologies came together at key moments in the history of XR to launch the concepts of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality into the mainstream consciousness. Throughout the Series, we’ll give a description of each of the supporting technology, some history about when it first came into use, its limitations, future potential for improvement and how it’s used for AR, VR, and MR.
Completing the Series will enable learners/participants to:
