Collaboration and meeting software for Virtual Reality

Step into your virtual reality office. rumii can be used across virtual reality headsets and desktops for collaboration and meetings. Built-in audio means no more dial-in numbers. Do more than share presentations. Teams can manipulate objects for 3D product design and innovation. Great for remote teams, education and digital nomads.

    Pros: 

    Gesture tracking, speech tracking, 3D audio placement and more: Makes having a meeting online much more like real life.

    Cons: 

    Love the embeddable models for discussions and training. Higher resolution would be awesome.

    Great possibilities here; can't wait to see what else comes of this.

    Eli Israel has used this product for one week.

This is fascinating. I've been watching the "cultural evolution" of remote working and distributed teams (fun fact: the Product Hunt team is spread across 8 timezones). More companies will be built by distributed teams in the future and we need tools to make communication and collaboration easier. I'm curious what Slack does in our VR/AR future. 🤔

@rrhoover Thank you Ryan! As someone who also has worked from home and remote teams for years, I always knew there was a better way of making this work. Currently, our team at Doghead Simulations is all over the world, but when we are in rumii we truly feel connected and productive as if you were in a real office. Let us know if you ever want a demo for your PH team! We would be honored.

Totally random idea I had looking at this...would be cool to integrate a ping pong table in office. A virtual meeting that also gets your heart going a bit! For me that would give a bit more of a reason to strap on the headset, headphones, etc.
Amber OsborneMaker@missdestructo · CMO, Doghead SImulations
@kjstrasser Yes! We could eventually do that in the rumii lobby! Thank you for the feedback.
Kevin Strasser@kjstrasser · CEO TribeBoost / Co-Founder Podfudge
@missdestructo Another random use case...remote teams working on VR projects together. So you can test work, try things out, and then discuss project without having to go back & forth from VR to the "real world."
Amber OsborneMaker@missdestructo · CMO, Doghead SImulations
@kjstrasser That would be awesome!

@kjstrasser Having something leisure to do while waiting for your co-workers to show up in the rumii lobby is something we've talked about doing in the future. Ping pong, golf, a batting cage, or pretty much any activity beats staring at a pop-up window that says 'Waiting for the host to start your meeting.'

Cool! does it work with HTC Vive (what I have)? Web based or its own app?
Amber OsborneMaker@missdestructo · CMO, Doghead SImulations
@kjstrasser Hi Kevin! rumii works with HTC Vive, Oculus and the Windows MR (Acer) headsets, you can also use it on desktop (PC/MAC)
Kevin Strasser@kjstrasser · CEO TribeBoost / Co-Founder Podfudge
@missdestructo Cool...I will test it out. Congrats on launch. Neat idea.

@kjstrasser Thank you!

What sort of work spaces are you thinking of developing in the future? Like the surface or Mars or an underwater lab. 🤔
Amber OsborneMaker@missdestructo · CMO, Doghead SImulations
@peet818 Oh all kinds of fun things. We have a ton of outdoor vistas and already have the underwater lab background!
Chance GlascoMaker@chanceglasco · Chance Glasco CCO of Doghead Simulation
@peet818 Our initial spaces during early access are going to be fairly default meeting rooms. After MVP we'll be adding some more exciting and atmospheric environments.
Wow so this just looks weird, is it for real? Besides of 3d-avatars do you plan on allowing streaming -faces- in those avatars, for video conferencing a la zoom but with a 3d-vr setup
Amber OsborneMaker@missdestructo · CMO, Doghead SImulations
@schpn Hi there Agusti! Currently the avatars work well by being facially expressive due to eye tracking in the headsets and the hand gestures by controller. Streaming faces is a good idea but could lead to the common current problems we have in teleconferencing software (lag) once technology catches up we would love to pursue this idea.
@missdestructo I understand, I like the Avatars too, maybe if they come to be animojis connected to your webcam, that would accomplish the same with less data being transferred...
Nick Timmons@personifynick · Director of Sales @ Personify Inc
@schpn @missdestructo At the right time, we should sync up. We don't just stream faces, we do full 3D volumetric capture, encode the hologram, send it over a network, decode it, and render the 3D hologram....all in real-time. Avatars will be a thing of the past rather soon, and we'll be looking for platform partners once Teleporter is ready to go in a few months.
Amber OsborneMaker@missdestructo · CMO, Doghead SImulations
@schpn @personifynick Oooooh. That's awesome!!! Let's keep in touch.
