What are the features?
Arthur has a unique take on it’s Avatar system. Presently, avatars are all rather similar, dressed in black and sporting sunglasses and a boom microphone in front of the face. All very Matrix like. It is all understanding that this is changing soon to a more customized appearance such as you might find through the Oculus Avatar system. Arthur offers a wide variety of features and functionality. It covers all the basics such as white boarding and note taking but throws in some very powerful file format support allowing users to bring in a wide variety of content. Users can upload MP4, PNG, pptx, PDF, 3D files and more for access while in VR. They even have a very unique note-taking system that floats in front of the user, always available in the event the user needs to make a quick note using the digital keyboard or pen input. All these notes and files can be notated on an exported for access for the team web portal. Arthur also provides content that can be used to populate a room in any way that user might require. This allows our room to be a spot for a presentation one moment then changed out for an evening social the next. Set the professional tear subscription having as many rooms as you might like would allow users the pre-populate spaces and move between them as needed.
