We’ve been hard at work getting things off the ground, but we’re very excited to have you along for the journey. In the past few weeks we’ve officially formed a company, created our landing page, and opened up our GitHub repos for all to see.
When it comes to product, we’re still mostly at the stage of discovery. Before embarking on the building journey, we want to make sure we are solving real problems that people have. A good exercise was to list our assumptions, and figure out how to (in)validate them.
From there, the next step is to have discovery chats with current web XR developers, and start diving onto some of these assumptions.
Building a brand can be described as reflecting the people who will use your product. What do they like, what do they need, and what is their design sensibilities. We don’t know many of those things, but we can make some guesses:
We think that the people who will like Volumetrics want to celebrate and augment the real world. They don’t want to escape it, and live in a neon metaverse. They might prefer natural light, natural materials, and a certain calmness from their technology.
We will have more to show in the next newsletter 😊
Introducing MR.js 0.0.1
MR.js is a spatial UI library designed to help developers get started building for the spatial web. Its repo is open and available to the public. It’s still in Alpha tho!
- Bootstrapped: MR.js comes with foundational features already implemented, such as hand gestures, physics, and high-fidelity text rendering.
- Extendable: MR.js comes with a built-in ECS,
can extend the
Entityclass, or any other element to create their own 2D or 3D UI elements, and implement custom logic by extending the
Systemsclass. You can read more about it here
- Under the hood: Built on top of already well established libraries such as THREE.js, WebGL, and Rapier.js, seasoned WebXR developers can quickly dive in to take full advantage of all MR.js has to offer.
Thanks again for tuning in. We hope to share more exciting news in the coming weeks!
