Meta Spatil Moon - the first virtual space of Meta Spatial.

 

The idea of forming metaverses is something that has been mentioned by leading technology corporations in the world such as Facebook, Microsoft, Nvidia, and Epic Games recently. The metaverse is a virtual universe where people can be present and communicate with each other just like in the real world.

In Vietnam, Meta Spatial is not the first startup that aims to develop metaverses, but it is the most popular project of its type.

CoinMarketCap statistics show that, after one month of launching, Meta Spatial virtual universe with the first product - Meta Spatil Moon - has received the attention of nearly 1 million people around the world.

Ngo Van Cuong - Founder/CTO of Meta Spatial.

Meta Spatial has received capital from more than 100 investment funds around the world, including famous names such as Okex, Polygon, Mex, CMC, X21, Master Venture, Redkite, ZBS, Au21...

Meta Spatial is considered one of the first projects to build a true metaverse world. By using AR, VR, MR, and XR technologies, Meta Spatial promises to bring unprecedented experiences to users.

Ngo Van Cuong, Founder/CTO of Meta Spatial, says that it is very difficult to create a 3D character that resembles a real person in real life. Getting that 3D character to move in 3D perspective or virtual spaces is much more difficult. Meta Spatial can do it by allowing users to turn their image into an interactive character in the virtual world.

Users can use their virtual characters to play 3D games. They can also attend virtual art exhibitions, virtual fashion shows, virtual music events or visit a virtual cinema in the Meta Spatial metaverse universe.

Meta Spatial has built a supporting technology platform for other startups to build metaverse applications for the community. Meta Platform will be the first in the world that allows personalization to bring a citizen from the real world into the virtual world.
