an idea to connect with others in a much more engaging way
Tell us about your idea
To be honest, I don't understand why schools across America decided to sell out and use a shady program like Zoom instead of something like more reliable Skype or Discord, but that's not my point.
There's a great free to play game/social platform called AltspaceVR, where people all around the world come to chat, socialize, and even learn. The best part is that, despite the name, you don't actually need a Virtual Reality headset to run this game; you CAN use a headset, but you can also use your phone or pc to run it! I think this kind of software is much more engaging and fun for everyone.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
I'm just baffled by the choice to use horrid, shady pieces of software just because a company gave a discount when there are so many better, more reliable, and FREE pieces of software out there. I just gave one example.
