Timberland announced a new metaverse experience with Fortnite on Tuesday, in collaboration with Epic Games’ Unreal Engine and ConceptKicks.

The relationship, which is centered on Timberland’s ‘Construct: 10061′ program, encompasses both the physical and virtual worlds and enables players and footwear enthusiasts to learn about Timberland’s design and creation process through an engaging playable experience in Fortnite.

A virtual design lab, a re-creation of Timberland’s real-world innovation lab and maker space, is housed in the area, providing a rare view inside the brand’s footwear innovation and design process.

Players will find four amazing Metaboots, including a replica of the iconic yellow boot as well as three unique boots inspired by the project’s bespoke outdoor biomes. Players can take on tasks and obstacles to unlock spectacular effects on a modified Fortnite island including Arctic, Desert, and Forest biomes.

“Timberland was founded on footwear innovation, and our collaboration with Epic Games’ Unreal Engine allows us to explore new dimensions as we imagine the future of bootmaking and boot culture,” said Drieke Leenknegt, Timberland’s chief marketing officer.

“In Fortnite, we invited innovators like Daniel Bailey, Zixiong Wei, and Aisha Kujk to co-create Metaboots with our own ACE designers, bringing the cooperation model into the metaverse.” Simultaneously, we’re introducing people to the world of design innovation through a fantastic Fortnite experience. In the metaverse, the options for connecting are limitless.”

Since its inception in 2018, Construct: 10061 has brought together the world’s top footwear inventors and designers to rethink and push the frontiers of bootmaking

Guests may check out physical prototypes, watch live game play, and contribute in real time as a fifth Metaboot is constructed in Fortnite during the next season of Timberland Construct, which will debut during Milan Design Week at Timberland’s flagship Orefici11 store.

Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan, who began making videos in sixth grade and has ascended to become one of the most well-known and following Fortnite players/creators in the world, has been picked for the launch.

“Thanks to their innovative, forward-thinking approach, Timberland has developed a heritage around some of the most beloved items in footwear,” said Raffaella Camera, head of brands at Epic Games’ Unreal Engine.

“With the support of real-time 3D technology and Unreal Engine-based tools and virtual worlds, brand enthusiasts will be able to engage with Timberland boots in ways not imaginable today, while designers will be able to develop and collaborate in whole new ways.” It’s thrilling to think about where we can go with this.”

Wolfofsol is a community-based new NFT project

Published

on

On the Solana blockchain, a unique 3D collection of 5555 wolves will be released to change the blockchain, Wolfofsol. The project is created “by the people, for the people” and is intended to provide the project holders with the greatest potential benefit.

“Currently, a significant issue with NFTs is that each blockchain has its own marketplaces and information about different NFT projects is disorganized and dispersed. We intend to bring order back to the organization.”

The objective of the initiative is to permanently alter the NFT industry. They portray themselves as the first genuinely multi-chain NFT platform on which users would be able to navigate various blockchain measurements and datasets. Additionally, they will be able to purchase, bid on, or sell NFTs from various collections.

Fve days prior to the private strike, the team will activate two hidden channels on the project’s Discord server to collect the whitelisted email addresses of ALPHA and BETA pack members.

At this time, the team will ensure that every address on the whitelist has been picked, and the rollout will begin: everyone will be able to exchange Wolf of Sol NFTs for 2 SOL each wolf. As soon as the hit is complete, the team intends to list Wolf of Sol on the main secondary markets in the Solana ecosystem (MagicEden and Solanart).

“Our initiative is made by the people for the people, and we want to provide our holders with as much as possible. Therefore, one hundred percent of the income from secondary market sales will be transferred to our holders who staked their claim on the work “”wolf

Beginning with Yellowstone National Park and Bithope, the project will conduct a huge annual charity drive each year. “We will give a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Solana via nps.gov and bithope.org. The community will determine which active campaign receives funding.”

SMU enters the metaverse with new programs

Published

on

Through its professional education arm, the SMU Academy, Singapore Management University (SMU) has established two new programs concentrating on two of the most anticipated components of Web 3.0: decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO) and the Metaverse.

The purpose of these programs is to train a wide variety of people interested in Web 3.0 for the future generation of the Internet.

The two introductory programs “Understanding DAO” and “Diving into the Metaverse” were developed in partnership with TechFin Consulting to help professionals and business leaders understand the fundamentals of DAO and the Metaverse, as well as identify opportunities for the application of technologies such as non-fungible tokens (NFT) and blockchain in their respective industries or organizations.

The inauguration of these two projects reflects Singapore’s dedication to fostering the Web 3.0 ecosystem and community, as well as the emergence of a new wave of Web 3.0 technology. The programs will benefit inquisitive minds, demystify the fields of DAO and metaverse, and serve as a launching point for their Web 3.0 journey. Participants who wish to explore employment prospects in the fast-paced and competitive Web 3.0 industry can enhance their credentials by earning an SMU-issued certificate upon program completion.

Mr. Jack Lim, the SMU Academy’s executive director, stated, “The first step in broadening society’s understanding of what Web 3.0 entails is training our workforce with the expertise to grab these new opportunities, boost creativity, and propel a wave of developing technologies. Early participants in the metaverse will gain the benefits of early acceptance, allowing them to claim a larger share of the metaverse’s entire market and culture as it becomes more common. With its extensive linkages to academia and business, the SMU Academy is well-positioned to provide a comprehensive set of organized training to create new talents, skills, and mentalities in developing sectors and new frontiers.”

eBay files new metaverse trademarks

Published

on

eBay is the most recent consumer brand to show interest in the metaverse, having filed multiple trademark applications for various products in the field.

The organization has submitted applications for non-fungible tokens (NFTs), NFT exchanges and NFT transactions, virtual goods markets, and online retail stores with both actual and virtual items. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) received the application on June 23.

The application was announced on Twitter on June 28 by trademark attorney Michael Kondoudis.

The application overview reveals that the eBay metaverse company intends to offer items such as an interactive website that enables customers to interact with digital assets on the blockchain. Additionally, the company intends to provide exchange services for NFTs.

Notably, eBay’s foray into the metaverse could expand the company’s operations and attract new clients throughout the current economic downturn. Despite being a pioneering marketplace, Finbold reported that the company’s stock was downgraded on June 28 after losing almost 30 percent of its value since the beginning of the year.

More businesses are entering the metaverse. Amazon, one of the main competitors of eBay, has also demonstrated interest in the metaverse by announcing plans to improve its customers’ experience via Amazon View, a virtual augmented room. The product provides users with a 3D representation of their home’s floor plan.

The majority of brands across industries are interested in metavers, primarily due to the necessity to boost customer contact. Mars Inc., the greatest chocolate company in the world, recently submitted an NFT application for its iconic M&M trademark.

McDonald’s and KFC are two additional corporations with an interest in the metaverse. In May, DeLorean Motor Company also submitted two NFT trademark applications.

The number of NFT-related trademarks in the United States surpassed 4,000 between January 1 and May 31, 2022, according to a report by Finbold.
