Gameplay

You embody an avatar and socialize with other users in VR spaces. Browse the web in a private browser that only you can see, or share content in real time by "beaming" web pages to gigantic public displays.

Goal

The goal of AltspaceVR is to be the most natural and fulfilling communication tool for VR online. Not only should users feel comfortable hanging out with each other in virtual spaces, but they should also have meaningful experiences to share. The experience should also be very accessible - minimal fuss with setup and brief tutorials.
