We focus on AR and VR solutions and integrate them with other technologies.
3IN work in a number of programs to train young adults how to design and program video games using new tools and industry standards. We teach them how to program, design and deploy games on a variety of platforms. These actions are under the “National Youth Guarantee System“ a European initiative that aims to facilitate young people access to the labor market.
