Geollery

Update: Geollery just moved to umiacs hosting at https://geollery.umiacs.umd.edu

Ruofei said he’ll have https://geollery.com redirect to it.

Geollery is a mixed reality social media website. Built upon a 3D mirrored world, you’re immersed in an environment where you can interact with friends in real-time or post pictures and messages for others to find.

A video demo Ruofei made:

Akanksha’s design drafts are available at her website: https://akankshas.me/geollery
