We have seen a massive surge in #AI interest in recent weeks which culminated in massive hype with anything related!

This brought me back to one of the projects I was most bullish about @RenderToken

What is $RNDR?
Why is there a need for #RNDR?
Who is behind it?

1.What is Render?

🔶GPU rendering system acting as a marketplace between GPU providers & requestors

🔶Provides GPU owners an opportunity to monetize their idle GPU by offering it's computing power to rendering job requests

🔶Allows GPU owners to loan out their GPU power Image
2.Why does this matter?

🔶Rendering costs massive amounts of money, time and storage space.

🔶Avatar (2009) as follows:
-40k processors used for rendering
-The computers were processing up to 1.4 million TPD to render
-Each of Avatar’s frames took several hours to render.

How many softwares are required to run a #STR/#VR business?

1? 3? 5?

We'd argue the number could be 20+, and put this market map together to share why.

🗺 Figma Map:
📃 Category Write-Up:

[ Backstory/links below ]
At @vrma's 2022 International Conference, @SlickTalkPod asked attendees "How many softwares do you use to power your business?"💻

To our (@usewheelhouse's) surprise, very few teams used 4+ softwares to run their business 😳

Why were we surprised?
b/c the number of software teams in the STR/VR space is skyrocketing 🚀

We left that conference eager to map out the state of technology for STR & VRs.

That project quickly resulted into tracking:

- 170+ software teams
- 19 unique categories of software

The talks from the @vsac2022 conference symposium I "Realities of Geometries" are now online. If you are interested in #MathArt and #illustratingmath, give them a look here:… (10-15 min. per talk). A short presentation of the talks as thread🧵. (1/5)
First talk is by me, @msmathcomp. I am speaking about the generalization of #Chladni figures to the third dimension. Thereby, the intersection of sound waves becomes tangible, e.g., in the form of a #3dprint. . (2/5)
Second talk is by Teresa Hunyadi ( and @davemurrayrust. They speak about deformations of #PenroseTilings. Their realizations include #CNC millings of the tilings as well as baked clay forms. . (3/5)

SO MANY challenges when starting #VR DEVELOPMENT such as what are all the tools & what do they do?


1- Start & learn to use a game engine (Unity/Unreal)
2- Learn Visual Scripting (C#/C++ more flexibility)
3- Get a VR Headset & computer (mac or win)

🧵 Thread Image
4- Ask yourself the question: what platform do you want to build for? Do not overcomplicate this, just pick one ex: Meta, SteamVR, etc
5- For Unity which is my expertise try the following toolkits: (XR Interaction Toolkit, MRTK 3, UltimateXR, VRIF, Hurricane VR) Image
6- With C++ or C# Development you will need a good IDE, Visual Studio, VS Code, or Rider (these are are all very robust)
7- Get familiar with the Debugger / Profiler
8- Get very familiar with Blender or similar (3D Authoring)
9- Start a VR prototype perhaps a clone of your game Image

The #metaverse is inevitable and it's going to be worth TRILLIONS

BUT there’s one huge problem – our current infrastructure can’t support it

Protocols such as @RenderToken aim to fix this and, as such, have the potential to increase in value by 30x – 80x

Here’s how


🧵 Image

Render is a decentralized “marketplace” that allows users to rent out unused #GPU processing power to #render 3D objects (we’ll explain this in a second)

It has a MC of $123M, FDV of $260M, and its $RNDR token trades at $0.48

In 2021, the token price hit $8.76

This thread will cover the following:

• Industry overview

• What problem does Render solve?

• How does it work?

• What are its plans for the future?

• Who are the key players in the ecosystem?

• What are its #tokenomics?

• What’s the potential value of #RNDR?

Back at #Fyuz22 for the #metaverse connectivity session

Curious to see the balance of “the metaverse” vs “a metaverse” in discussion and presentations
(A bit of history - I wrote one of the first ever market research reports on #VR #VirtualReality in about 1995, when I was working at UK analyst firm Datamonitor. It was published by FT Managerment Reports. Wish I could find a copy to look at my predictions again)
Speakers talking about metaverse use-cases

Accenture sees MV as a “deep stack”, not just an app layer. Referencing creator economy, customer engagement for brands etc

SDKs I recommend for #AR & #VR with details that makes each of them unique & useful for different use cases:

📌 MRTK (Microsoft Mixed Reality Toolkit): one of my favorites and it is a powerful open source project that accelerates cross-platform mixed reality creation.

🧵 Thread Image
MRTK provides a lot of features and supports a large amount of XR devices such as HoloLens 2, Meta Quest, Windows Mixed Reality, SteamVR, and others.

More information about MRTK:…
📌 AR Foundation: a super useful cross-platform wrapper around augmented reality SDKs that allow you to work with a common set of APIs.

The idea of AR Foundation is to use XR Plugins such as Google ARCore XR Plug-in (on Android) Apple ARKit XR Plug-in (on iOS), and others.

Depuis 18 mois le #Web3 est le buzz word qui résulte de l’intersection de 2 tendances : #VR & #blockchain.

Mais la réelle révolution est à l’intersection d’une 3ème tendance : l’#IA générative.

Cette première vidéo est créée à partir d’un simple texte grâce à l’IA générative de Meta.

Apple’s VR technology has been slowly revealed to us over the years, right under our noses. #apple #AppleEvent #VR #AR #VirtualReality
I’ve written a little about this but will elaborate a little more… Time for another thread. So grab a snack…
Last week I read a bit of that interview of Mark Zuckerberg where he was talking about their next VR headset. He went on to talk about how right now, they are getting their Avatars to be more expressive… such as Mouth movement, eyebrows… etc. Sounded a lot like…
…A lot like what apple showed us in 2017… Animoji. They had the Mouth and Eyebrow thing nailed down like 5 years ago, just think of where they are at right now. In 2017, they didn’t call it an Avatar, and they certainly didn’t talk about a Metaverse.

The iPhone Killer will be made by Apple.
#Apple #vr #ar #VirtualReality #AppleVR
I think most people look at the VR headsets that exist today, and think that nobody is going to be walking around with that huge thing on their face. What they don’t see… is 10 years from now…
10 years from now, when this tech has matured and been shrunken down into a pair of glasses… ok… maybe slightly larger than glasses but that’s the goal. In 10 years… using a device that has a large screen on it will start to seem silly.
Many people have huge TV’s in their house… large computer monitors… and they get upgraded/replaced often enough to continue filling up landfills. People dedicate so much space in their home for TV watching, and for their computers…

When #cryptocurrency projects distribute their native #tokens straight to their customers' wallets.

[#web3 glossary thread]

Important or insider knowledge, notably about the value of #digital assets such as #cryptocurrencies and #NFTs; a measure of an investment's return over and above that of the market or other benchmark.

[#web3 glossary thread]

Formerly used to describe any #cryptocurrency that wasn't #Bitcoin; however, #altcoin is now used to describe any new cryptocurrency with a low market valuation.

@SoftspaceHQ Prototype04 is here!

This prototype explores how a spatial interface can let you better work with the true shape of your ideas.

Yes, I think ideas have shapes, and that their shape matters. 👀👇🏼🧵

What is the global structure of knowledge?

How we think knowledge is structured determines which strategies for seeking and creating knowledge we consider legitimate. Image
Some think of knowledge as one long sequence—perhaps the word of a deity revealed in a holy book.

You look for knowledge in the book, and create knowledge by interpreting points in the book. Image

SoftspaceAR Prototype03 is out!

This prototype is all about making Softspace deeply interoperable with the rest of your workflow.

Let’s talk about why spatial canvases are awesome, but also painful, and how we maybe fixed this 🪡👇🏼

#vr #xr #metaquest2 #tft #buildinginpublic
Having a spatial canvas to organize your ideas on is amazing, but spatial layouts can be hard or impossible to translate to the other formats and devices in your workflow.

And if the work you do in an app gets stuck there, you’re (justifiably) not going to use it very much. Image
With Prototype03, I wanted to figure out how Softspace might overcome this problem without simply becoming a VR version of an existing 2D app. Could we keep that immersive spatial magic, while reading from and writing to a file format that’s highly portable?

Like markdown? Image
