Our group poses the question: what if the “Metaverse” is made up of an open ecosystem of interoperating, simultaneously running applications that blend the advantages of AR, VR, the web, open source, and standards? We demonstrate a joint WebXR system for multi-user, multi-app composited application development using open standards (WebXR). To participate in the demonstration, enter the Mozilla Hub via https://awe.webaverse.com/ supported devices & browsers since Hubs runs in the browser it works across many different platforms. For 2D experience: Hubs works on most modern desktop browsers on Windows, Mac and Linux. It also works on most mobile browsers for Android, and Safari on iOS. For VR experience: For Desktop VR (Oculus Rift, Windows Mixed Reality, or HTC Vive) Hubs works when used with a WebVR compatible browser (e.g. Firefox). Users must also have either Oculus Desktop App (Oculus rift), or SteamVR installed (Windows Mixed Reality, HTC Vive). For Standalone VR devices (Pico Neo 2, Oculus Quest and Oculus Go) Hubs works in the Mozilla Firefox Reality Browser or the Oculus Browser. Mobile phone powered VR systems, such as Samsung Gear and Google Cardboard, work using Google Chrome browser. Note that some features may be limited on low-powered devices such as mobile phones.https://hubs.mozilla.com/docs/hubs-create-join-rooms.html#supported-devices--browsers
