Virtual Worlds & Applications

For virtual reality & desktop

Vircadia™ is an open-source 3D interface and server foundation that allows for vast social & educational platforms to be created and lived in while also being shared in real-time with others.

What is VircadiaDiscord

Virtual Realities for one, for all.

Meet People & Make Friends

In Vircadia, there are people that you can meet, chat, and play with from every corner of the globe in VR or desktop!

Use Custom Avatars

Whether it’s anime, human, anthropomorphic, or something completely original of your creation!

Create Your Own Worlds

Whether it’s a home, a venue, a city, or something in between… with Vircadia you have the largest building space of any metaverse engine. (16 km^3)

Host Events

From large expos and events to small get-togethers like movie night, this is the perfect place to meet in your own custom world or a pre-existing meeting world!

Mainstays of Metaverse

3D Spatial Audio

All voice audio in Vircadia is spatialized by default. Have a chat or experience concerts as they are meant to be heard!


Unlike most platforms, Vircadia is 100% decentralized with the full software stack necessary for a premium metaverse experience under Apache 2.0. Because of this, all aspects of the project can be customized.


All building and scripting of your world happens in realtime. This means that you and your friends can shape it live around you, together.

More Platforms

Windows, Linux, OSX

Vircadia works on many devices and platforms. You do not need a VR headset to create and enjoy social VR; you can use one when and however you see fit.

NDN World

a dreamlike representative amalgamation of Santa Fe style, the Community Convention Center and a sea of walls bearing the actual artworks from artists featured at this year’s market. Embodying an avatar, users can walk right up to the pieces and get information on when they were made, by whom, what awards they might have won at Market this year and so on.

Virtual Expo


Industry attendees who joined the virtual expo were able to walk around to exhibitor’s booths, exchange virtual business cards, watch informational YouTube videos, browse vendor websites, and download various marketing material.
