A Corporate Metaverse – Industrial Applications of XR Technologies
The term “Metaverse” has been on everyone’s lips – especially fuelled by the re-branding of Facebook to Meta in the second half of 2021. But what is the Metaverse? Terms like Web3, NFTs and digital economy, decentralized digital identity and XR are thrown around by so-called experts with little to no context. But what is truly happening within this space? Since Stephenson originally coined the term in the fictional novel “Snow crash” back in 1992, technology has changed enormously, so what is the state in 2023?
In this talk, we will present a part of the Metaverse that we call the “Corporate Metaverse”. We will explain how we utilize XR technology to bring great value to companies today, while we all wait for the true vision of the Metaverse to become a commodity. We will explain on which design principles we have built our enterprise XR platform called SynergyXR, and you will of course be invited to try out SynergyXR on some of the different hardware platforms we support. Hopefully, you will walk away from this talk with a very concrete example of what Metaverse technologies can be used for to bring value to companies already today.
