The MetaVerse is rapidly becoming the “cool” place to be, and dozens of companies are finding ways to capitalize on the virtual reality experience. One vendor, Spatial, is revolutionizing MetaVerse experiences, through culture, exhibits, and special events for different types of groups and organizations.
What is Spatial?
Spatial was founded in 2016 by Anand Agarawala and Jinha Lee, with initial investors of iNovia Capital, White Star Capital, Expa, Kakao Ventures, Lerer Hippeau, Leaders Fund, Samsung NEXT, along with angel investors including Mark Pincus (founder of Zynga), Andy Hertzfeld (Co-Inventor of the Macintosh), and Mike Krieger (Co-Founder of Instagram). Spatial is comprised of a passionate team of 3D designers and MetaVerse experts. The company is based out of New York, and the team is dispersed throughout the U.S.
The idea behind Spatial was to provide a beautiful landscape where people could meet, entertain, educate, learn, enjoy cultural experiences together, and share.
The company’s goal was to create an open platform in the MetaVerse where companies could easily create fantastic virtual spaces and interact closely while integrating their designs with dozens of other platforms and apps, all backed by the blockchain to monetize their offerings.
How You Can Use Spatial to Expand Your Reach
Spatial provides a unique opportunity for brands to custom-design their own creative spaces in the MetaVerse to share content, build communities, and drive sales of NFTs.
Spatial is a diverse platform allowing you to host a variety of different types of events. You can easily use it for education, entertainment, sales, exhibits, and more! You are only limited by your imagination.
Spatial is a full-service MetaVerse platform that includes everything you need to get started in virtual reality. Some of the features that allow you to do this include:
NFTs are getting a lot of attention right now. The MetaVerse is the new frontier where brands host and promote their unique artwork and digital creations. Spatial’s NFT Gallery offers companies the perfect platform for showcasing their digital wares. In addition, virtual reality enhances accessibility opening up your offerings to the world, not just your local destination.
Although you can use one of Spatial’s available rooms to host your virtual art show, you can also create your own custom-themed room. The platform supports both NFT and non-NFT virtual art galleries. You can provide details about your artwork using a Lightbox pop-up so visitors can learn more and click to purchase.
You have the option of hosting any type of event in virtual space. Spatial can accommodate 500 users for each event. You must be a Spatial+ user for this number of participants. However, you can have as many rooms as you want running simultaneously. Users will want to create an account and design their avatars before the event starts. Creating an avatar is quick, easy, and only involves taking a selfie.
Support for Browser, Mobile, and VR Headset
Spatial included cross-platform support. Participants in your events can use a simple web browser, their mobile device (iOS/Android), or a VR headset. They are not limited by any specific hardware or software. Participants may have access to different options within the space depending on which mode they join.
Spatial has dozens of available beautifully crafted spaces that you can use to host your events, or you can choose to customize your spaces with your own artwork or designs. Spatial provides all the details you need, such as room dimensions, for you to get started. You can even choose between different floor plans. Add content to your rooms using images or via a screenshot. You may also decide to add interactive content, such as animations.
You can use 3D (pedestals) or 2D displays for your artwork and other NFTs and sell them through your account. You can even enhance your artwork with custom frames built into the platform.
Loves and Visits
Consult your Spatial dashboard to see metrics of how many users “liked” or “visited” your space. Visitors can “like” any room by tapping the heart icon.
If you want something truly unique, Spatial has partnered with some trusted 3D companies to customize your space based on your individual unique needs and wants. They offer partners in various countries to choose from.
Spatial has teamed up with ReadyPlayer.me to offer users the most realistic expressive avatars available. You can start by creating your avatar with a selfie or choose from the existing library and then customize your appearance however you like.
Spatial supports MetaMask for the Ethereum and Polygon blockchains. Therefore, you can integrate your MetaMask wallet easily with Spatial.
Host Tools for Control
It’s essential to maintain control over your event and the participants. Using Spatial’s built-in Host Tools, you can control the following items:
- Mute all participants
- Kick participants
- Ban participants (1 hour, 24 hours, or permanently)
