STYLY MR（ https://styly.cc/mr/ ）
STYLY MR is a MR platform where developers can edit and save MR layers suited for various environments without the need for complicated operations such as building applications, and can also stream immediately to any sort of device.
There are functions such as changing layers, showing or hiding objects or other interactive functions, so the user does not need programming skills to enable actions.
Note: A layer in STYLY MR means a layer of the space around you. In the near future, people will start to switch through REAL⇄MR⇄VR, and layers will become a new unit for everyday life.
