Why Bridges?  There are two definitions of bridges that resonate with our technology and what we strive to achieve.

1. a structure carrying a road, path, railroad, or canal across a river, ravine, road, railroad, or other obstacle.

These structures connect communities together, they are the conduit for commerce and communication.  Our solution allows for remote collaboration no matter where you are as long as you have a network or internet connection.  We connect communities and teams together.

2. the elevated, enclosed platform on a ship from which the captain and officers direct operations.

The Bridge is the epi-center of command and control and where data and information is fed into in order for decisions to be made and then disseminated for action.

BridgesXR is a technology company that connects communities together and is an environment that enables effective command and control.  Both definitions of the word combine in our solution to enable the metaverse. 


eXtended Reality (XR)

BridgesXR brings an enterprise level eXtended Reality solution to market.  The ‘X’ is a combination of Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Realities.  The solution is a unique, data driven collaboration space for distributed enterprise operations. Not just about powerpoint presentations and social interaction. The technology enables data from real systems, simulated platforms or digital twins to be visualised and manipulated for planning or real-time operations. It is a development platform and framework that can be used to create experiences specific to customer requirements.
