Virtual and augmented reality technologies are changing how we work, live and play. Ride a water slide with a VR headset on and dive into a fantastical water world on the other side of the Earth.

At xREZ, we create engaging and powerful sensorial, co-present and data-driven virtual and augmented reality experiences. Our work focuses on humanizing emerging technologies to harness their potential. We explore the possibilities for using big data to create immersive data worlds that transform our view of ourselves and our world.
