Metaverse This journey is 1% finished

„Have fun in the meta­ver­se“ is aut­hor Col­lin Croome’s dedi­ca­ti­on for us in his book. But what does the meta­ver­se mean for us in the working world? Do we even need to get into it? And if so, how?
Good to have a place for all the­se ques­ti­ons – our GABAL-Forum. And so, on the evening of May 15, many curious guests gathe­red in our Sky Lob­by to lis­ten to the pre­sen­ta­ti­on by Inter­net pio­neer and Meta­ver­se evan­ge­list Col­lin Croo­me. Our spea­k­er descri­bes it like this: the Meta­ver­se is a mul­ti­me­dia, three-dimen­sio­nal space in which you can immer­se yours­elf with your per­so­nal ava­tar and inter­act with other peo­p­le and vir­tu­al elements.

In his pre­sen­ta­ti­on, we expe­ri­en­ced almost in 3D how rapidly the deve­lo­p­ment has alre­a­dy pro­gres­sed and what else awaits us in the near future („this jour­ney is 1% finis­hed“). Becau­se the pos­si­ble appli­ca­ti­ons are huge. For some of us, the meta­ver­se is just a big play­ground, but it is alre­a­dy being used in are­as of indus­try, archi­tec­tu­re, logi­stics, medi­ci­ne and finan­ce.
And we at AXICA – dri­ven by the pan­de­mic – also had our vir­tu­al show­room crea­ted two years ago and can meet with our customer:s as ava­tars and walk through the 360-degree envi­ron­ment of AXICA’s digi­tal twin.

In the real world, Col­lin Croome’s pre­sen­ta­ti­on was fol­lo­wed by a lively Q&A ses­si­on and many sti­mu­la­ting con­ver­sa­ti­ons over vege­ta­ri­an deli­ca­ci­es from our kit­chen. Asi­de from the fact that we were all deligh­ted with the very ana­log encoun­ters, we all agree that the Meta­ver­se is an exci­ting deve­lo­p­ment and holds end­less possibilities.

P.S. if you’d like to take a vir­tu­al look at AXICA, here’s the link to our vir­tu­al twin.
