Next up on our mission of trying out different kinds of virtual reality collaboration tools was Mozilla Hubs, an immersive social experience, an online 3D platform, that runs in your browser. It is free and works literally on every platform: with virtual reality headsets, on desktop, tablet and even mobile phones. On top of this, Hubs is open source and very customizable. You can upload your own avatar, or even build your own spaces with their online 3D editor! 

But we, the Helsinki XR Center team, wanted to find out is it suitable for work purposes as well?

Next up on Helsinki XR Center’s test list of social VR and collaboration tools was VRChat, quite possibly the largest and definitely the wildest social VR platform available!

Our team certainly had a lot of fun with it: crazy avatars, games, karaoke … but can it be used for work as well?

Next on our “working remotely on different virtual reality platforms” tour was Rec Room, a free recreational virtual space, where people can socialize and do various activities, such as play paintball or meet in a park. We wanted to find out whether it is also suitable for working purposes, and wrote an article about our experiences with it.

The third expedition in our “testing out virtual reality collaboration tools” series took us to Bigscreen VR. Can it be used for meeting purposes, or other work related events?

Next up on our mission of trying out different kinds of virtual reality collaboration tools was AltspaceVR, one of the most prominent current social VR platforms in the world for hanging out with friends and enjoying virtual events. But is it also suitable for work?
