Extended Reality

What does it mean?

Extended Reality (XR) serves as a comprehensive term encompassing Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Mixed Reality (MR), and the continuum between them. XR is reshaping ordinary consumer interactions and various industry sectors, ranging from industrial manufacturing and healthcare to education and retail.

Spatial Computing

With the advent of XR, we are entering the era of spatial computing. Spatial computing is a new design model that enables users to interact with digital content in a physical space. It is a paradigm shift that we believe will open various new opportunities for platforms such as ours. Spatial computing is a new way of thinking about design that is more natural and intuitive for humans.

Our configurators already make use of this new paradigm shift. Some of our configurators were desgined and tested with Meta Quest Pro headset. Check out these videos and images to get a glimpse of what it is like to edit 3D models through our configurators in XR.

Feel free to test these modes yourself - subscribe to our platform, login to bitbybit.dev on your Meta Quest browser, open configurator page of your choice - you will see a 3D configurator on your 2D XR browser canvas. Click button called XR or VR and you'll jump into the edit mode.

We understand that not everyone has access to XR devices, so not all of our configurators are available in XR, but whenever we think that this mode adds a lot of value to the user experience, we will make sure to include it.

Check this zen hideout 3D house algorithm, which makes designing in XR super easy even when making structurally sound models of great inner complexity.

Here's an experiment we did a while back that shows what it is like to deisgn parametric 3D models in XR.
