What it is: A new VR productivity app called Space, developed by the Shanghai-based firm Pygmal Technologies, pairs with HTC Vive or Oculus Rift to digitize your physical monitors in a virtual environment. In this beta version, up to six giant monitors float in front of the headset at a time,and the user can multitask between apps and windows by looking around or pulling browser windows into view.

Why it's important: Apps like Space allow us to longer be constrained by physical monitors and traditional workspaces. Pygmal Technologies founder Xiao Jia says that future versions of Space will enable real-time collaboration with fellow users, which could make it ideal for decentralized programming, creative or engineering teams.
