A popular application for remote collaboration Spatial is now free for all “in coming months” in response to the ongoing global pandemic of mers.
Applications such as Spatial, create a new way of working remotely compared to two-dimensional grids of threads of Webcams that can be seen in such services as the Zoom by moving in 3D. On this virtual workplace, you can import almost any file, including documents, models, images and videos.
Spatial Quest works for Oculus, HoloLens, Magic Leap, and, soon, with AR glasses Nreal.
Of course, VR is still too expensive and inconvenient for many, but the AR is still primitive, as is much more expensive. Thus, Spatial allows users to join via a web link (e.g., Zoom), as well as from smartphones and tablets. Traditional platforms use the same user interface as XR, to discover when switching between them.
In the virtual environment, users can annotate, draw and write notes. Users of VR and AR are at a disadvantage when it comes to text input, but voice commands to enable Spatial search and post public image and the 3D model.
When you enroll in Spatial, you will be asked to pose for a quick photo. From this single photo Spatial can generate a fairly realistic avatar for each person. Weak tags names visible above their heads, but the goal is to make them read unnecessary.
Spatial is already used by such successful companies as Mattel, Pfizer, Ford, Purina, and Qualcomm. The startup claims that over the past few weeks interest has increased, as companies begin to form long-term plans for remote work.
“We live in a time when the sense of connection is more important than ever. Video chat is good, but it can’t replace work together in the same room,” — said General Director of Spatial Anand Agarawala.
After the crisis of the Corona Spatial plans to introduce restrictions on the use of the free app, but will continue to offer a free version.
