About Shape Immersive
The world is moving towards a fundamental shift where our physical reality will soon blend with a virtual one. In order for people to interact with virtual content as if they exist in the real world, we need “The AR Cloud”, a real-time spatial map of the world. By using blockchain technology, Shape Immersive is building a decentralized marketplace that will make geospatial data universally accessible so anyone can create scalable and persistent augmented reality experiences.
