Last month, Nextech AR announced a major Metaverse upgrade to its events platform. ARitize Events 3D is now able to showcase 3D products seamlessly with the Company’s existing suite of Augmented Reality solutions, creating a first of its kind metaverse event platform. Notably, event hosts will present through this upgraded metaverse events platform, and this will be the first time Nextech’s new product will be shown live to an audience.
The upgraded features on “ARitize Events 3D” bring 3D objects into the events space and peoples homes, creating interactivity between the audience and the presenters which is not available on other platforms. The integrated experience consists of human holograms, 3D Virtual Sets, 3D AR Showrooms, and 3D AR product visualizations.
Join Paul Duffy (President, Nextech AR Solutions); Clinton Els (Head of Education, Nextech AR Solutions); David Cramb (Dean of Science, Ryerson University) and Nancy Teodoro (Education Partner Lead: Microsoft) to explore the future of learning with Augmented Reality Labs and the Metaverse.
The event will cover:
- How higher education is benefiting from augmented reality in Science education
- Microsoft’s view on education as it relates to augmented reality and the Metaverse
- Nextech’s Augmented Lab Builder for the Metaverse
- Use case: Walk through the Metaverse on the campus of Ryerson University and in one of its augmented labs
In addition to the event, the company's Augmented Reality Lab Builder for the Metaverse is now available in the Microsoft marketplace. The AR Lab builder will enable any higher education student to create their own immersive AR labs with Nextech’s online course and creator tool using a Unity Plugin. AR Labs are easy to use, experiment based labs in augmented reality that encourage students to “learn by doing”. The labs will engage, supplement, and/or replace student lab experiences which are a fraction of the cost of wet labs and are accessible online any time, anywhere across the globe.
