About


We [XR Foundation] believe that the Metaverse, Web AR, VR, XR should be easy.

We want a Star Trek future where participating in immersive communication technology and shared simulations should be as easy and natural as making a website.

Your own sandbox in the Metaverse. Take what you need, or launch the full stack.
  • Includes a self-deployable platform, UI, worlds, avatars, and games
  • Fully customizable for any kind of game, social experience, event or spatial web app
  • User management, avatars and inventory with optional blockchain integration (see our Blockchain-in-a-Box repo)
  • Social features like chat, groups, friends, blocking and moderation
  • Complete world editing and administration
  • 2D, 3D and XR Avatars with full inverse kinematics and facial expressions
  • Fully networked physics using PhysX compiled to wasm
  • Voice and video over WebRTC
  • Instant login and location sharing with phone number or email
  • Modular - Use the engine, server, client, editor and scalable devops infrastructure as needed
  • OAuth login with Facebook, Google, Steam, Github or instant login with email or phone
  • WebGL client deployable to iOS, Android and desktop
  • Free, open source, MIT and Apache 2.0-licensed
  • Fully composable, extensible and interoperable "Project API" that allows an open-source user-generated collection of plugins, asset packs & web integrations
Our main focus is XR Engine, which includes 3D multiplayer worlds with voice, video, avatars, portals, blockchain-backed marketplace, trade, inventory and payments, everything you need to get started and build from there.

Let's build it together

We believe that projects like this are extremely complex and difficult, and can only be built when large groups of people work together, out in the open. If you believe that your calling is to build a free, open network that everyone, everywhere can get value from, then you are welcome in our community, and we'll do our best to get you set up.

We are always hiring talented people who want to be leaders in what is to come. Inquire with anyone who seems like they know what's going on and they'll help you find who you need to talk to.

All of our code is free, open source and licensed to be changed or modified in any way, for any reason. It’s important to us that the people who use our technology can own their own future and modify the code however they see fit.
