    Add "AR/VR" Tag meta

I’d like to suggest the addition of an AR/VR tag as a further specialization of graphics for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).

Stories that would benefit from it:

I’m a little torn on this, but I’m curious what people think. I feel like the tag identifies a pretty clear cluster of technologies and programs, and it’d be helpful to act as a crystallization point for more submissions in that direction.

    This seems fine to me … but let me just peevishly point out that we don’t even have a tag for audio/music, which is far more mainstream than VR/AR. (There is an audio tag but it’s to mark posts that link to audio files like podcasts.)

      The blanket term for these technologies is usually XR in case that helps.

      1. 2

        I’m well aware–see also mixed-reality. All of those strike me as rather strained hype and marketing terms.

        (Though, in all fairness, I shudder to think at how much VR has been abused as a term.)

        Yes please add this tag, I think many people would benefit from being able to filter on this tag and decide to read a story, or not, if this tag is attached.
