Mission

We are the first German innovation network for research and development of new technologies and applications of Extended Reality for social and cultural fields of application.

Spatial computing, in combination with immersive devices such as VR/AR/MR glasses, enables a new form of digitality – extended reality – that we can immerse ourselves in, experience, and share with others who are spatially distant. Digital content is thus no longer confined to 2D screens, but can merge with the real environment. The technology has the potential to overcome spatial boundaries and bring people closer together.

Many German research institutions and technology companies possess key technologies that provide the basis for innovations in the field of Extended Reality. Our goal is to bring together these competencies across companies and universities for the implementation of innovation projects.

Extended Reality applications are based on a variety of technological layers. We deal with the entire technological implementation chain from the basic technology to the applications themselves, focusing on fields of application in e-commerce and culture & entertainment.
