ROOM takes the notion of Zoom’s immersive meeting but gives it a true 3D gaming engine tuned for video meetings. WIth ROOM you are in control of your POV. ROOM’s founder has a background in video game development, which explains why ROOM creates a truly immersive world. (Yes, I’m the
disembodied short fella in the room; the others were all in Berlin.) The experience was sort of like teleportation. And because each attendee controls their own POV camera in the 3D gaming environment, I was able to explore the entire room, or zoom in and look up the presenter's nose. Think of it as a move towards VR meetings, no extra hardware required.
