Workshop Augmented Reality & Metaverse | GAMING & METAVERSE duration Evening
According to McKinsey, the metaverse will generate a 5 trillion USD economy by 2030. 120 billion USD was invested in the first five months of 2022, more than double last year's 57 billion USD. 95% of business leaders claim that within 5-10 years, the metaverse will positively impact their business. Thanks to the recent technological investments that are leading to the realization of the metaverse, this market will likely grow in the near future.
The main challenge for companies is to offer new and unique experiences that broaden their lives.
Nike has already created a virtual city in the Metaverse. On the video game Roblox, Nike has indeed created Nikeland, a place where "sport has no rules". All Nikeland avatars are branded head-to-toe in Nike apparel and shoes. What’s one of the main goals of the brand? Launch and test on digital models new products virtually that, if appreciated, will be physically produced in the real world. In practice, Nikeland is a laboratory for studying user interests. And at this point, the brand stops being an actor in the world in which the community lives, to become the very world in which the community lives.
In order for experiences to become authentic, engaging and immersive, communities must be guided by virtual community managers. Their main goal is to build a world where the users feel at home and can share their passions with other members of the community. The community manager must be an excellent host who has the task of welcoming his guests, making them feel at ease and free to express themselves.
We have all heard of augmented reality (AR), one of the fastest growing technologies in recent years. If you've ever used a street view service to learn about a neighborhood before traveling or an interior decorating app to see what the furniture looks like in your living room, you've already experienced augmented reality. In entertainment there are many examples of AR: filters that alter the appearance of a person in a photo, games that blend real and virtual spaces and apps that place virtual characters within a physical environment. The augmented reality headset will be the tool that will allow you to enter the metaverse.
Generative AI will be decisive in creating spaces and scenarios with very little human input, it will be possible to create environments that exist in the physical world or generate original spaces, starting from developer inputs and also using reinforcement learning to design comfortable and funny spaces. By improving the technique with each iteration, the areas created will be useful for many human needs.
