What is oVice and How Does it Work?
oVice is a 2D virtual space where people meet and interact as avatars. Replicating natural human-approaching behaviors online, users have the ability to virtually walk around and mingle with others by getting their avatars closer to the other party. The closer they get, the louder voices will be. This makes it easier to walk in and out of conversations along with providing an environment that allows for more coincidental discussions. In order to make online interaction more enriching, people can share video-conferencing tools, like screen share, video chat, and more.
oVice, Inc. Overview
The company develops and provides a virtual space "oVice" that helps people to gather in one space, move freely, and interact effectively for the purpose of enhancing remote communication. Since the service was released in August 2020, the number of created spaces has reached over 5,000 in less than a year to be the top virtual space in Japan. Not only as a virtual office for companies of various industries and sizes, but also for online exhibitions, wedding events, and academic activities.
