THE DAWN OF A NEW ERA
Since Facebook rebranded as “Meta” in October 2021, the vague concept “Metaverse” has been a hot topic of discussion and is currently a major buzzword in the worlds of tech, business, and finance. Based on our experience of bringing thousands of people into virtual 3D environments, Metaverses, for all kinds of purposes we know that Metaverse is the platform that digitalizes the world and social interactions.

THE EVOLUTION OF INTERNET
The Internet is constantly evolving and the exponential growth of devices accessing the web combined with faster and more reliable connections opens up new innovations. Up until now, we have experienced the internet as a flat, two-dimensional (2D) traditional website or video conference. However, now the time has come to add depth and a three-dimensional (3D) way of moving and experiencing the Internet. This is the next step for the internet and that’s why Metaverse is also named Web3. The tech industry is in consensus that this is the next big thing and that’s why the tech companies unveil their Metaverse strategies and investments.
Around the Corner is a Metaverse company that, on behalf of our clients, creates digital copies of physical environments as well as fictional worlds where people can meet, share information and discover the uniqueness that a Metaverse offers together.
By making the unimaginable possible we strengthen and accelerate our clients possibilities of visualizing products, services and interact with customers and employees in a new virtual way.
An immersive way of placing products and services in the right context and narrative.
The core strength with Metaverses is that you are limitless in the type of worlds you can create. It can be a digital clone of an existing or a non-built physical environment or an space emphasizing your products characteristics.
In a Metaverse you can elaborate with space, time and dimension and empower your market communication.
Just like a TV-studio you can now have your own Meta-studio broadcasting to Teams, Zoom etc.
During the pandemic a new way of communicating emerged and there are now professionally equipped studios in many offices and meeting facilities.
A way of empower broadcasts is to do a part of this with VR headsets within a Metaverse studio where you can invite remote guests, have a panel discussion or do a classic management presentation.
Gather the entire company for an inspiring session with talks, break-out sessions and After Work
Humans are social beings and we love to interact and socialise. We also know that different external factors can make this hard and from a sustainable perspective we should minimise our traveling.
By using a Metaverse you can gather an unlimited amount of participants, experience new worlds together and do all kinds of relation and team building activities.
