Product/Service Summary

Edorble makes online learning more personal, playful, and powerful by leveraging 3D/VR technology. We create private 3D worlds that allow classes or teams to come together and have a sense of space, togetherness, and presence while they communicate and collaborate online. We also create custom designed or branded 3D world environments for schools or companies that want a bespoke experience. Edorble is accessible from laptops and soon, virtual reality headsets. As the rise of VR/AR happens, we'll be positioned as one of the leading collaboration tools for these new devices.
