Montreal — February 4, 2022: Unsplash, the preeminent image platform for global creators, today announced it now offers 3D assets on the Unsplash Library, providing a premium destination for 3D visuals.
Mikael Cho, Co-Founder and CEO of Unsplash said, “Virtual and augmented reality technologies represent the next stage in the evolution for how we interact with information, and with one another. Creativity and experimentation have always been at the heart of Unsplash, and the growth of 3D, AR and VR represents a huge opportunity for our community.”

According to a 2021 report, the global augmented reality, virtual reality, and mixed reality market is forecast to reach close to 300 billion U.S. dollars by 2024. It is expected all technologies likely will grow faster due to the pandemic and the high demand for technologies that enable better remote work, faster manufacturing, and also the rising popularity of the metaverse.

We are proud to empower our contributor community who are pushing the boundaries of the open imagery movement and are thrilled to be accepting 3D renders to the Unsplash Library.” added Cho.
