As much as technological advances have made it possible for many jobs to be carried out from virtually anywhere in the world, collaboration apps and tools have struggled to bring people together in a way that authentically replicates a face-to-face interaction. 'Spatial' hopes to change this with its augmented reality conference room app, which lets people use the natural space around them and turn it into an augmented workspace.

Rather than being stuck within the limitations of an audio or video conference call, users are able to seamlessly collaborate with one another, as well as share content as if they were in the same room. A key part of what makes Spatial successful is the inclusion of photorealistic avatars, which have articulated hands and arms.
