What is the STYLY Session function beta version?
This function allows multiple people (recommended number of people: 10-15) to hold a virtual tour that can be experienced by multiple people.
Users are divided into a host user and guest users, and other users join a session (= a list of tour scenes) as guests in a session created by the host user.
The host user can join a session only with PC VR / Quest or other VRHMDs, and only the host can change his/her avatar by connecting with VRoidHub.
Guest users can join a session with their default avatars.
The host user plays the role of a guide, and can provide a tour-style experience by switching between scenes that have been picked up in advance, such as curated or newly created XR works from the more than 16,000 XR works that exist in STYLY.
With multi-device support (smartphone, web, VRHMD, smart glasses (NrealLight)), users can easily participate with their own devices and communicate with voice.
This function is suitable for providing high-density experiences such as acting as a guide and explaining art works, touring photogrammetrically created scenes of tourist attractions around the world, holding events such as Rakugo and ghost stories, and creating hobby groups for conversations.
You can get started a session right away! A starter guide is also available.
We’ve prepared a starter guide for those who want to try it out first.
For those who want to try it out first, we have prepared a starter guide with demo scenes that can be experienced comfortably on multiple devices.

VR solo exhibition tour of artist Discont’s works will also be held.
This is a tour to see various STYLY scenes under the theme of “Interesting experiences in virtual space”, which has been revealed through the activities of NEWVIEW PROJECT, with Discont, who supports various artists in creating xR works as the director of NEWVIEW PROJECT.
We will explore various scenes, mainly VR works created by Discont, but also VR works created through NEWVIEW PROJECT activities, and unravel “what is the fun of experience in VR space”.
