Campfire continues to add its 3D collaboration platform to new devices, with its Meta Quest 3 HMD offering launching on 1 November.
Focused on holographic collaboration for design and engineering workflows, Campfire is building a new generation of XR hardware and software that can enable globally distributed teams to work with 3D models as if sharing a central holographic projector.
Using the Campfire app, technical content creators can enter design reviews, assess systems for assembly at 1:1 scale, or compose scenes from existing CAD and 3D files on the desktop, and collaborate using Mac, PC, iPad, and now Meta Quest 3.
“Quest 3 brings a fundamentally new collaboration experience with full-color passthrough. Compared to previous VR devices, users feel connected to their environment, their content, and their team.” said Jay Wright, Campfire CEO, and former president of now PTC-owned Vuforia.
“Whether you’re presenting concepts in a design review, or explaining a complex assembly procedure, the Campfire experience on Quest 3 is the next best thing to interacting in-person with physical items themselves,” he continued.
With a focus on enterprise, the new Campfire app is designed to be easy to learn for first-time Quest users. A virtual assistant named Spark welcomes new users with an interactive tutorial that blends humor and how-to instruction. Spark exemplifies the potential for future AI-driven assistants capable of answering questions verbally while demonstrating physical actions spatially.
The app for Quest will be available in the Quest Store on November 1 for Quest 3, Quest Pro, and Quest 2. The Campfire app for PC, Mac, and iPad are available now.
