1. A method comprising:
displaying a virtual meeting space on a display device;
determining a level of abstraction associated with a virtual object from among a plurality of different settable levels of abstraction, wherein the level of abstraction is determined based at least in part on hardware capabilities of the display device;
generating a modified virtual object visualized based on the level of abstraction; and
displaying, in the virtual meeting space, the modified virtual object visualized based on the level of abstraction.
