Here are some specifications and features of spatial computing that can help you understand it even better:

  • Spatial computing is not a singular entity. In fact, companies can create their own spatial computing environments. So, there can be an infinite number of spatial computing environments created.
  • In spatial computing environments, people can have virtual identities represented by Avatars.
  • You can create, invest, buy, and sell in a fully functional and virtual economy powered by cryptocurrencies and digital or spatial assets.
  • Individuals and companies can create their unique content and experiences in spatial computing environments to attract an audience.
  •  Spatial computing environments exist in real-time and never go offline.
  • Using augmented reality and virtual reality, spatial computing environments create an immersive experience for users.
