Social virtual reality (VR) allows multiple remote users to interact in a shared space, unveiling new possibilities for communication in immersive environments. Mediascape XR presents a social VR experience that teleports 3D representations of remote users, using volumetric video, to a virtual museum. It enables visitors to interact with cultural heritage artifacts while allowing social interactions in real time between them. The application is designed following a human-centered approach, enabling an interactive, educating, and entertaining experience.
