Helsinki XR Center functions as FIVR’s (Finnish Virtual Reality Association) main developer hub in the Finnish capital region.
The XR hub offers shared workspace, equipment, co-learning and mentoring for teams in their early phase of virtual and augmented reality development. Our objective is to support grassroots activity and innovation of Finnish VR/AR teams, help with the transition into spatial computing mediums and reduce the early risks involved in hi-tech R&D as well as to build a flourishing community around virtual culture phenomena.
HXRC offers a development program for early phase VR/AR teams in three stages:
1) A three-month trial period to create a prototype.
2) A six-month extension period to establish a minimum viable product or project as well as to build the team.
3) Case-by-case extensions depending on development situation, team viability, progress and potential.
Application period for Helsinki XR Center developer space is ongoing and new teams are brought in as space becomes available. Applications should contain information on the proposed project including objectives for the next six months, team headcount, skills and background, and estimate on how often the team would need the space.
The teams are chosen according to need of the space and equipment, skill and potential of the project idea.
