Our Approach

Our drive is to bring people together to improve life and the worlds we share, using shared reality technologies.

Our Story

Shared Realities is founded and directed by Professor David Roberts and brings together many of people he has worked closely with over the 25+ years of research into shared mixed reality and telepresence. These people range from VR coders and modellers to VR clinical leads and therapists.
