VR and AR Development Hubs Are Opening Around the world

(VentureBeat) A steady stream of physical spaces devoted to VR and AR have been popping up recently. These are hubs where VR and AR developers can share resources, experiment, and network. The VR industry is currently passing through the stage of adoption Gartner calls the Trough of Disillusionment, which means that whoever is betting the farm on this technology will need to make sure they can last a long winter before they see mainstream adoption.
The Realities Centre debuted in London earlier this month, a coworking space devoted to VR, AR, and MR makers with an incubator program that will launch in early 2017. Amsterdam saw the launch of the VRBASE two months earlier, which follows the same model as a coworking space and incubator for VR and AR but also offers an accelerator program that begins its first cohort in spring 2017.
