The remote collaborative prototyping app ShapesXR released on the Oculus store this month, and so far we’re pretty happy with the tools and being able to share creations with people in the app. They’re also currently having a contest in partnership with Circuit Stream, themed around creating an experience that is “the future of media consumption in the Metaverse” (a pretty interesting topic to us). The submission deadline is December 10rd, 10 pm CET.
Meta (formerly Facebook) recently announced the creation of 10,000 new jobs across the EU to help build their contribution to the metaverse. They have really been putting massive efforts into moving a vision of a connected universe into becoming a reality. This will also inject European ideals into created worlds and culture of newly created environments, making things less U.S. focused.
