Hacking your way to a finalist with Unity, Git and WVS

Last weekend MIT hosted the annual RealityHack drawing teams from all over developing super cool and innovative XR projects on topics ranging from Living Sustainably to Future Constructors to Working Together for Inclusion and Equality.

One of the finalist teams developed a killer XR utility app to easily share files across devices called AirDrop XR. The team created the app on Unity using Wevr Virtual Studio as the cloud platform to develop and host the app. A team of 5 devs collaborated using version control and cloud orchestration and hosted on WVS. Airdrop XR is publicly available for free as a Community Project on WVS.

Team member, Michael Mandel, said “Overall, it was a great experience and we were happy to get up and running so quickly with WVS.”

The Wevr team loves to work with indie devs on jams and hackathons. Please reach out if interested.

Set up your own virtual studio. Sign up for WVS Early Access.

Apple Vision Pro changes everything: Why the WVS team is excited to support VisionOS developers.
I still vividly remember meeting Mike Rockwell, Apple head of AR/VR, back in 2016 and giving him a demo of TheBlu Whale Encounter VR experience which Wevr had developed on the HTC Vive headset. Needless to say, I’ve been waiting for Apple’s entry into the space ever since. There’s much to be said and being said about the Vision Pro. I’m going to touch on three aspects of the Vision OS and Vision Pro platform that standout to me and make this device the next leap in spatial computing.
