On February 22nd, 9:00 pm CET, the final event of Educators in VR 2020 was held in the auditorium in Somnium Space. It was streamed live on Twitter and YouTube, but more significantly a connection was established between the stage in Somnium and a virtual hangout in AltspaceVR. Artur Sychov, founder and CEO of Somnium Space, along with a group of Somnium Space members, danced, clapped and cheered for the audience in AltspaceVR.
Artur, who also spoke at the event, explains: “We are making VR history. And what happened tonight will be replayed forever and be seen as the dawn of the true Metaverse.”
After the connection with AltspaceVR was terminated, the event continued with music, speeches and a tour of Somnium Space.
