A Nordic VR software company called Glue Collaboration has launched a next-generation VR collaboration platform, bringing significant new features and support for Oculus Quest compatibility.
Glue enables dispersed participants to come together to learn, share, plan, design and co-create as if they were face to face in real-time in the same physical space.
The system was piloted over the past year by leading global companies including KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Microsoft, and HP, among 200 other organizations.
VR in the Era of CV19
“Given growing travel uncertainties, new cost-saving imperatives and the climate emergency, the need for remote collaboration tools that truly emulate the experience of being face to face with others has never been greater,” said Jussi Havu, CEO, Glue Collaboration. “Traditional audio and video conferencing tools fall short in providing such an experience as they lack true human presence and effective co-creation tools. Glue is a powerful alternative, and our new release provides the most feature-rich virtual environment yet for effective remote collaboration in both real-time as well as asymmetrically.”
Oculus Quest VR Support
Glue is now compatible with the affordable standalone Oculus Quest VR headset and therefore businesses have an affordable and low-friction path for their employees to use the Glue platform. An array of new features include:
- A new virtual touch interface — enables users to easily set about performing different tasks such as writing notes, creating whiteboards, and making annotations in 3D
- Team Files — file sharing system for sharing presentations, 3D models and images,
- A set of new virtual spaces for effective collaboration, including Project Garden, Lake Cubic, and Clarity Island
- Extended keyboard character support and new languages supported
There are many ways for organizations to use Glue, reflective of the diverse ways people collaborate in the physical world. These range from recurring remote meetings, project scrums, virtual training simulations and product marketing showcases to workshops where dispersed teams can put their heads together.
