Organizations large and small have been deploying real-time, interactive 3D experiences via apps for years, with the demand for training and marketing solutions being among the top priorities. “The first ‘killer use case’ of 3D is the ability for everyone to participate in the creation process, hence our no-code/low-code approach,” commented MetaVRse CEO, Alan Smithson. “MetaVRse is a cloud-based 3D game engine that works on every device, browser, and operating system without different versions, apps, app store approvals, app store commissions, and without the need for code. This is truly a 10X improvement over the status quo.”
So after four years in stealth development and a worldwide launch in June 2020, MetaVRse today announced a suite of global partnerships and network memberships, including programs driven by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., Oculus, Autodesk, NVIDIA, Creative Destruction Lab, and Founders Factory. Dubbed “the game engine that means business” by Forbes, the 3D creation platform is among the first in the world to offer a no-code/low-code editor on the web.
Built from the ground up to be universal, the MetaVRse Engine is already being used by organizations large and small for product showcases, interactive 3D training, marketing, virtual showrooms, and events. “From the beginning, we knew the future of spatial computing was on the web, so we built an ultra-efficient rendering core and made it easy to learn, easy to build, and easy to share with a link or QR code,” said MetaVRse Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer, Paul Koniezcny.
“MetaVRse is on a mission to unlock the power of spatial computing for everyone,” said Co-Founder and Chief Learning Officer Julie Smithson. “By making the creation process no-code, we have opened the door to creators around the world to learn how to build in 3D without the need to code – all in the browser.” Scan the QR code to try live demos
