Vibehub - The Virtual / Augmented Reality Platform

Technology Behind VibeHub
Vibehub transactions will run on the Ethereum blockchain. The web platform will be compatible with Metamask and Myst browser, making it easier to bridge non-crypto users to our platform for the first time. Our front end is hosted on AWS CloudFront in multi geo locations, which scales automatically to handle any load of users. The backend consists of NodeJs micro services that run in server less environments i.e. Containers, Lambda Functions (LAAS). For the VR/AR Development we are using Unity Engine, SteamVR SDK, Oculus SDK, Microsoft HoloLens SDK, and Sony PSVR SDK.

Using this combination of technologies, will allow us to develop a cross platform product that will work on existing AR/VR hardware and future hardware as well. The voice chat, and body tracking of avatars in virtual spaces, will use P2P technologies that allow massive user scaling while keeping costs down. We take pride in our innovation of integrating our Vibe Coin crypto wallet in the virtual space; As it has never been done before. Future plans for AR will also include the use of special multi sensor stereographic cameras, to achieve what we like to call “HoloPresence”.

This Technology has been demonstrated by the Microsoft research team in the “HoloPortation” project. Integrating this technology into our platform, will create a unique experience unseen on the blockchain or off the blockchain, for that matter. Additional operational costs such as data storage and hosting will be handled by the original backers of VibeHub. Remaining a fee less platform is very important to our integrity.

John Lennon once wrote a song called “Imagine”. Mr. Lennon spoke of a future where the impossible would become plausible. Now imagine looking out of the window on a space station in a virtual world, where you have the ability to seamlessly travel to other virtual hubs and marketplaces for creative collaborations, attend live concerts, get boxing lessons or even setup a virtual date.

Imagine being able to interact with someone on the other side of the world in virtual reality, over a cup of tea accompanied by live music at the same time. Essentially giving you the feeling of being in the same place, in a completely immersive environment of your choice. Envision being able to engage in safe and secure micro transactions seamlessly, with anyone in the same virtual space. Imagine the possibilities of simple secure transactions for entertainment experiences, digital assets and services, all on the same platform.

Vibehub is at the forefront of this technology and is already building the platforms for the coming virtual universe. Every major sector of industry, especially technology companies, are heavily invested in Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) platforms. Virtual and Augmented reality based applications are the next big computing wave, and we believe the only way to build substantial growth and longevity is to usher blockchain technology into this mixed reality space. We believe that in order to build sustainable value for our platform, we need to embrace the inevitable migration to AR and VR technology.

Vibehub is a Virtual space that allows access to various market hubs by creating a meta-virtual world of our own. The allowance of micro transactions with our VIBE currency will usher in a new paradigm of social interactions as well as safe transactions in a virtual space, which has never been done before. Virtual reality will create social experiences, more personal than a live chat or a phone call, providing a more immersive experience with someone on the other side of the globe, all on our platform. Imagine the captivating prospect of two people dating on our platform, sharing virtual experiences from various hubs in a completely immersive AR/VR environment.

The augmented reality and the virtual reality markets are projected to be worth up to an estimated 162 billion dollars by 2020. Mobile (AR) could be worth as much as much as 83 billion alone, though this technology will take longer to develop than (VR).

In addition to the browser based version of our platform, we are making the VibeHub platform available on Virtual and Mixed Reality devices as well. We believe that through this multi platform support we will be able to future proof our applications and currency.

"New estimates from IDC expect total revenue for VR and AR to grow from $5.2 billion in 2016 to more than $162 billion in 2020."

Our Vision of the Future
We believe that the next step for decentralized apps is to embrace the upcoming technology of Virtual, Mixed, and Augmented Reality. Here is a preview of what we envision for the type of Augmented Reality collaborations and interactions we will make possible on this platform in 2018. We envision using this technology for studio sessions, concerts, and meet and greets.
