A New Vision for VR
High Fidelity is a distributed, open-source social virtual reality (VR) software platform anyone can use to create and share VR experiences. Users can create and host their own VR world, explore other worlds, meet and connect with other users, attend or host live VR events and much more.
The infrastructure we’re building will collapse distance and remove barriers, making virtual life an integral part of how people learn, work, and enjoy themselves. As the distinctions between our digital and physical lives disappear, we see the unique, immersive aspects of VR as a reaffirmation of the most human elements connecting us all together. We’re building an Internet-scale technology to support a billion users around the world as VR becomes the “next screen” to dominate human discourse and interaction.
