Alloverse, a Swedish VR startup developing an open-source platform for virtual collaboration, closed their pre-seed round with a €250k amount. Its ambitious mission of building the future of the 3D internet by keeping their technology open, and growing a global community of VR/AR enthusiasts shows that “sharing is caring” can make a difference. The idea […]
Yay me – I just released an AlloApp! 🎉 The first of many to come, this basic drawing board is a server-side-running, inherently collaborative “tool” to be used simultaneously by multiple people in a virtual Place.
