Campfire Brings 3D Collaboration for Enterprise to Meta Quest 3

Campfire Streamlines Design Reviews, Training, and Work Instructions with Passthrough

SAN MATEO, Calif. , Sept. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today Campfire announced its 3D collaboration platform will be launching in the Meta Quest store on November 1st. The new Campfire app uses full-color passthrough on Meta Quest to make remote collaboration feel more natural than ever for workflows across the physical product lifecycle.

Campfire introduces a new digital medium to replace 2D documents and videos with interactive 3D scenes. Today, technical documents describing physical products and processes are tedious to prepare, hard to understand, and frustrating to collaborate with. With Campfire, technical content creators use Campfire to compose scenes from existing CAD and 3D files on the desktop, and then collaborate using Mac, PC, iPad, and now Meta Quest 3.

“Quest 3 brings a fundamentally new collaboration experience with full-color passthrough. Compared to previous VR devices, users feel connected to their environment, their content, and their team. Whether you’re presenting concepts in a design review, or explaining a complex assembly procedure, the Campfire experience on Quest 3 is the next best thing to interacting in-person with physical items themselves,” said Jay Wright, Campfire Co-Founder & CEO.

With a focus on enterprise, the new Campfire app is easy to learn for first-time Quest users. A virtual assistant named Spark welcomes new users with an interactive tutorial that blends humor and how-to instruction. Spark exemplifies the potential for future AI-driven assistants capable of answering questions verbally while demonstrating physical actions spatially.

Campfire for Quest represents Campfire’s mission to make 3D communication more human through industry-leading spatial computing and XR technologies. “At Qualcomm Technologies, we believe XR is going to be an essential tool towards enabling deeper and more creative collaboration in the workplace,” said Hugo Swart, Vice President and GM of XR, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Campfire is helping to lead the way with a flexible solution for next generation XR devices and is a great example of what’s possible with full-color video-pass-through capabilities enabled by our latest premium-tier platform, Snapdragon® XR2 Gen 2.”
