Four Uses of Virtual Reality in Spatial

September 15, 2021

Virtual reality offers limitless applications when it comes to creating lifelike spaces in the digital world. At Spatial, we are approached by clients in a number of different industries who find incredible uses for our technology. The best part? We’re regularly adding new options and features for more interactive spaces. 

One of the most common things people think about when they hear “virtual reality” is some sort of headset experience or video game. That’s part of the VR revolution, but it’s far from the only activity you can explore with Spatial. Here are four examples of how users harness Spatial for entirely different experiences.

Meeting Spaces 

As you likely experienced this past year, the virtual meeting experience on flat, static webcam galleries is far from conducive to a great meeting. Spatial provides uses for virtual reality that can combat those boring video conferences and help teams create dynamic meeting spaces for more productive and meaningful meetings and conversations. Hybrid offices and work environments can thrive with the help of Spatial. 

With 3D environments and custom avatars, Spatial provides the most authentic meeting experience possible when you can’t all be together. Spatial is being used by companies as a space for meetings, presentations, brainstorms, fireside chats and team bonding activities. The platform is also being used by friends and family to meet and have social gatherings virtually. 

Virtual Art Galleries and Museum Exhibits

One industry diving head-first into the potential of VR is the museum and gallery world. From exhibits on ancient history to interactive environments for artists to showcase their work, Spatial provides the sandbox necessary to bring creative visions to life.

With the ability to upload everything from photos and video to actual informational signs that describe what visitors are looking at, your work can reach more people than ever thanks to virtual art galleries and museum spaces. Simply put together your display, obtain the link to invite others to explore your creation, and build a wider audience in no time.

Training and Onboarding

Training might not be the most glamorous process but it’s an essential one. From onboarding new employees to catching teams up on the latest regulations and guidelines for a given industry, training is almost a weekly occurrence for most businesses.

Spatial’s technology combines both the interactive space needed to provide hands-on training and the convenience of a digital space accessible from anywhere. Workforces are growing more and more remote but that doesn’t mean that the experience needs to suffer. Let Spatial help you build your perfect training session. 


Spatial is being used by universities like Carnegie Mellon, University of Arizona and others to create a more interactive, collaborative approach to remote learning. Spatial’s integrations and features like notes, whiteboard and 3D objects, makes it very easy to recreate a classroom setting and deliver lessons to students. The platform gives an opportunity for students and teachers to build close relationships due to heightened telepresence and enhance their knowledge. 

Things are moving quickly, as many schools are looking at a possible combination of in person learning and remote learning. Being in Spatial, looking across a room at other students and feeling together is very powerful, especially now when we’re looking to feel more connected as we’re further apart. Hybrid learning could be around a while longer, and Spatial can help.
