Rhino XR Studios Story

We were launched after our Co-Founder, Don LaPlume, who had launched an education and publishing company was searching for solutions to help students want to engage, learn and grow. During his search, a close friend and master VR experience creator, Robert Carlisle introduced Don to the potential of VR for Education.

Together, they created a an XR | VR and AR platform that helps students learn faster, retain more of the knowledge and retain the knowledge longer. They were then able to translate this system to empower non-profits and businesses to use the Rhino XR Studios Platform profitable and for the betterment of others.

This has now lead to the creation of MegaVerus their proprietary Megaverse Solution.

MegaVerus – “The big Positive” of the metaverse.
