IDENTIFYING A GAP
Circuit Stream's story began in 2015, through a network with the developers, designers, and creators pioneering the ecosystem for virtual and augmented reality.
Rather than build the first wave of commercial applications, Circuit Stream saw a need for education and training that could accelerate progress of the VR/AR industry. From this journey, Circuit Stream's XR Development with Unity training course was created.
"IF YOU WANT TO MASTER SOMETHING, TEACH IT"
Circuit Stream was founded by questioning what the most important thing for spatial computing was. We found our answer as educators. Our goal has been to share a foundation of knowledge on the best tools, processes and workflows for XR development and design.
Since then, we've grown into a diverse and distributed team that shares a common mission of accelerating XR's adoption and transforming how we learn, communicate and collaborate.
What we do
EDUCATION & DEVELOPMENT
We are proud to have taught over 25,000 professionals through workshops, training and our XR Development with Unity course.
Our alumni come from all kinds of backgrounds and industries. Over time, we started to be asked for more advanced training and customized applications by companies experimenting with XR.
These experiences became a proving ground for our team to understand how companies adopt XR technology.
Where we're going
