We are three colleagues who enjoy discussing news and topics relating to extended reality. We believe there is a big gap in society on what extended reality is and how it's used. Each episode we will touch on different points and current affairs in the XR world and do our best to communicate this information to you.
Please enjoy our Podcast and do not take it too seriously!
