(MultiChannelMerchant) Walmart and its Store No. 8 innovation and incubator have announced the acquisition of startup Spatialand. Spatialand’s software tool lets users turn content into immersive experiences.
Spatialand worked with Store No. 8 on a project last year, according to a blog post from Katie Finnegan, principal and founder of Store No. 8 and vice president of incubation at Walmart, announcing the acquisition. This included a VR proof-of-concept built by Spatialand founder Kim Cooper and her team, along with Store No. 8 consultant, Jeremy Welt, culminating in a live demo at Store No. 8’s Innov8 VR event.
