The Kyoto University, Japan has partnered with Teraverse Inc., in building a unique virtual experience centered on Buddhism. ”Teraverse,” is developed purposefully to integrate Buddhism into the digital arena.
The virtual space will be made of temples as ”Tera” in Japanese means a Buddhist temple. According to the developers, this will eliminate the physical world’s limitations like time and space.
The Teraverse has great temples of different shapes and sizes with lasers they can utilize and create for their faces.

Furthermore, the Teraverse is also a space for digital information in the form of Buddhabot, a Tera Platform AR. The Buddhabot is an artificial reality-powered (AR) system with Buddhist scriptures. Users seeking advice can consult Buddhabot, which will answer their questions based on the actual teachings of Buddha.
The Buddhist Teraverse and the Tera Platform AR version 1.0 are new methods to connect traditional knowledge and science into a single system. However, the Teraverse and Tera Platform AR are prototypes still undergoing development.
