For Our 10 Year Anniversary, We Dug Up a Few Images of the First Virbela Campus

Virbela turns 10 today, so we’re reminiscing. In 2012, virtual worlds showed a ton of promise. Now, we have the most advanced enterprise Metaverse available for use today.

For Virbela’s 10th anniversary, we rounded up a few images of our original virtual campus. 

The first Virbela campus was actually created in an innovation lab at the University of California San Diego, a couple years before the Virbela organization of today formed. Virbela Co-Founder & President Alex Howland was there earning his Ph.D. in Organizational Psychology. 

His doctoral thesis? That people perform better when they feel connected to others within a shared space. 

Now, Virbela is the most advanced enterprise Metaverse available for use today. Last week, at Hands In, we launched a fully redesigned campus to carry companies into the future of remote work. 

But, before that, there was this:

2012 vs 2022 Virtual Buildings

2012 vs 2022 Theater Auditorium

2012 vs 2022 Meeting Rooms
