Mozilla’s Experimental App Increases VR Accessibility
The tech company launched a VR social network, accessible on any browser, where users can hang out as avatars in virtual worlds
The overall set up is relatively simple. Hubs is accessible through any internet browser and provides easy instructions to help users decide which virtual room to join. From there, a participant chooses an avatar and an online screen name, and receives a URL to share with friends for easy interacting.
Hubs does not require any virtual reality hardware either, which means anyone with a smartphone or computer can use the app. For now, Mozilla says Hubs is solely an experimental project. However, the company is interested in giving users more freedom so they can create their own avatars and digital worlds.
