HXRC Team: Testing Glue, a virtual collaboration tool

We realized that this situation is our chance to explore ways of working remotely, and we are now on a mission of trying out different kinds of virtual reality collaboration tools. First one in our exploration queue was Glue, a virtual collaboration platform created in Finland. Supporting Finnish companies is always a priority for Helsinki XR Center!

HXRC Team: How will we work remotely?

We will share the journey of how our Helsinki XR Center team, a group of eight persons with different technical backgrounds, will work together weekly in virtual reality using multiple platforms and extended reality equipment from home. Our team will give honest opinions and insights exploring different virtual conference rooms in cyberspace. Does it really work in VR or not? What did our XR experts and other team members think: can virtual meetings be just as good as face-to-face ones?
