Microsoft Mesh to Ignite VR for Collaboration
I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I donned my Oculus Quest 2 virtual reality (VR) headset and entered the event space for Microsoft Ignite 2021. I certainly didn’t expect 3D whale sharks, a giant squid, a hologram of James Cameron, or dancing with Cirque du Soleil co-founder Guy Laliberte. I had no idea I’d be dazzled by the experience of a keynote truly optimized for VR; one future keynoters will be challenged to match.
But that is what I encountered in the VR version of the Microsoft Ignite keynote, hosted in AltspaceVR. You might be asking yourself: What do augmented and virtual reality have to do with unified communications (UC)?
