Today, Theia Interactive announces that it has received an Epic MegaGrant for the research and development of its new collaborative VR tool, “BigRoom.” Created for use with Epic’s Unreal Engine, BigRoom will make it easy to create and share online meeting rooms where VR and desktops users can interact, review designs, and explore and edit projects created in Unreal. BigRoom is currently in a closed beta. The grant will expedite the development of the product through a series of new hires and additional funds for research.
“Theia is working toward bringing real-time rendering and collaboration tools to the virtual design review process for multiple industries,” said Bill Fishkin, founder & CEO of Theia Interactive. “This Epic MegaGrant will help us improve the integration with Unreal Engine and deliver the next generation collaborative VR platform with BigRoom.”
