»Indie as a parasite«
Since all the mayor stakeholders in the technology industry are shapeshifting their services and products to 3D user interfaces, a standalone Web 3.0 is in formation. Considering the heavy computational capacities (ultra-high resolution, render farms, massive processing power) of VR technology, indie content comes forth on the big industrial hardwares „in the night shift”.
