Hypercosm is an open protocol that acts as a 3D analogue of current web technologies. Anyone can run a ‘Cosm’, much like they can run a web server. There is no central authority or source of truth, just like the World Wide Web. Through Hypercosm, users can have both single- and multi-user experiences, consume and create media, play games, socialize, and work.
The protocol is being developed by a group of tech-oriented folks who have primarily been working out of a Discord, with plans for more easily-accessible discussion platforms once the protocol has had an alpha release. Various channels are currently bridged to Matrix:
- Technical Planning (discussions about the core spec, extensions, and other general consensus):
- Cosm Development (discussions about creating Cosm server software):
- Browser Devlopment (discussions about creating Browsers and other client software):
- Shitposting (mostly off-topic discussion and general brainstorming):
