There is a gap! By excluding reality in VR applications, the technology cannot realize its full potential – especially in business use. VR applications with free movement, physical interaction, multi-user capabilities and low entry barriers (esp. without motion sickness and risks of collision) are not cost-effective and scalable to implement. Equally AR applications can only generate full added value with environmental awareness. 2Sync takes the next step in both worlds by breaking down the limitations and connecting all of reality with virtuality – enabling truly Mixed Reality. Powered by our 2Sync SDK, we feature the first Software Development Kit to synchronize the physical and virtual world. This enables us to deliver XR applications in a cost-efficient and scalable way – and delight users with physical interaction and movement in the real world, higher immersion, avoided motion sickness and longer usage times. Enterprises can become one of the first to offer physical XR experiences and ensure undivided attention, achieve higher user penetration rates and increase willingness to pay. And all of this in any environment – completely space independent.
Bringing Mixed Reality to any Environment.
2Sync specializes in creating innovative and immersive Extended Reality (XR) experiences that synchronize real and virtual worlds. Our Software Development Platform for space-independent, procedurally generated XR applications extends the reality of every user. We can intelligently overlay or attach the physical world with virtual information, enabling entirely new applications: from Virtual to Augmented Reality and all in between - we implement true Mixed Reality!
We are dedicated to novel & enhanced immersive XR applications.
Physical interaction without predefined environments
Users can interact with the physical objects in their environment, allowing them to actively incorporate them into the virtual experience. Without predefined environments like in location-based VR experiences.
Natural movement & multiple users without risks
Users can move naturally in the virtual and real world without fear of injury. Not just alone; multiple users can interact in an environment at the same time and be synchronized with each other.
Higher user acceptance & faster adaptation
The movement and interaction reduces triggers of motion sickness. User acceptance increases and technology adaptation time decreases.

Our 2Sync SDK facilitates cutting-edge house scale XR experiences
Our applications are based on the in-house developed 2Sync SDK. The SDK allows us to describe space independent applications that are experienced in an infinite number of environments. This enables us to provide an immensely precise spatial registration of users and objects; the virtual world starts to feel real.
2Sync was initially developed as part of a research project at the renowned Hasso Plattner Institute in Germany in 2019 and has already been used in various applications. The four following steps represent the core capabilities of the SDK and allow the integration of the real and virtual world.
Description of virtual objects
2Sync SDK allows assigning material properties and logical relationships to virtual objects to match them with physical objects.
Scan of real environment
Using a lightweight built-in tool users can scan their physical environment in just a few simple steps.
Procedural generation of virtual worlds
The SDK applies the room-independent description of virtual experiences and creates procedurally generated worlds in the user's environments in real-time.
Physical interaction & multiple users
One or several users can register and calibrate in the environment, allowing them to move freely in space and interact with objects with high precision.
Incredible partners from 2Sync
Application scenarios arise in a wide variety of industries
In cooperation with industry and research partners, we already discussed a wide variety of application scenarios. Whether reality-based virtual trainings, mixed-reality production lines or new forms of collaboration in Augmented Reality: 2Sync makes it possible to rethink XR. Enclosed you find several examples of implementations in different industries.
Mixed-reality production lines that virtually integrate manufacturing steps
Novel entertainment offerings, e.g. in a reality-based metaverse
Training simulations in real-world scenarios, e.g. mass panic events
Collaborative engineering with physical interaction on components
Personalized inspections of show houses; virtual home staging
Resurgence of historical scenes through virtual integration of destructed objects
