Tripolygon empowers metaverse creators

Published

on

Participating in play-to-earn games, purchasing virtual real estate, and generating 3D assets on metaverse platforms like Roblox, AltspaceVR, and VRChat are all ways to generate money in the metaverse. Tripolygon, a South Korean 3D modeling software company, allows metaverse users to create their own 3D elements using Unity plugins.

In an interview with TechCrunch, Tryipolgon CEO Jae-sik Hwang noted, “Creating 3D modeling is no longer a subject for experts or software engineers solely.”

To help speed its expansion, the Seoul-based business just raised $5.2 million. According to Hwang, the Series A fundraising takes the total amount raised to $5.7 million, valuing the company at around $25 million.

Hwang, who formerly worked as a senior engineer at Crytek, a German video game developer, established Tripolygon in 2018.

Hwang noted that 3D modeling software is a set of tools for creating 3D assets, and that users can use the tools to create any type of 3D asset, such as buildings, props, items, and avatars. Tripolygon provides metaverse producers with 3D modeling tools (UModeler), plugins (UModeler X), and more as a subscription service. The 3D modeling tools will be added to Unity if users install Tripolygon’s UModeler in Unity, according to Hwang.

The majority of Unity engine users, such as programmers, game designers, and visual effects (VFX) artists, require 3D assets. Even so, learning 3D modeling software applications like 3ds Max, Maya, and Blender, which were designed for 3D modeling specialists and professional software developers, is difficult for them. They will be able to generate 3D assets with the familiar UX/UI in Unity using Tryipolygon’s service, according to Hwang, without having to master sophisticated software packages.

Unity developers that utilize the UModeler from the Unity Asset Store are the company’s key customers, according to Hwang. According to him, the UModeler is used by roughly 17,000 Unity developers and has close to 2,000 monthly active users.

Tripolygon became a Unity approved solutions partner in October of last year. Unity has announced that its software development kit is geared for Unity editors and developers for its product UModeler, a real-time 3D model generation plugin. KB Investment and We Ventures led the current round of fundraising, which also included Naver Z and Strong Ventures.

Lowe’s increases its metaverse offerings

Published

on

Lowe‘s wants to help builders visualize projects with it; Lowe’s metaverse assets, including free downloads of 500 product assets like chairs, are available on its own hub.

Lowe’s EVP and CMO Marisa Thalberg told media, “It’s all developing and up for exploration.” The shop chose “neutral and democratized” metaverse platforms, she said. She continued, “Our goal is to let individuals utilize their imaginations to make their virtual spaces as fascinating, inspiring, and entertaining as their real world spaces.” And that’s all we want.”

Metaverse members have paid thousands for non-fungible tokens to outfit aviators from Gucci, Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana, and Ralph Lauren. Gucci’s Roblox garden had 19 million visits. Dolce & Gabbana sold “The Glass Suit” NFT for $1 million.

Lowe’s will provide the first 1,000 Decentraland participants a limited NFT collection of boots, hardhats, and other accoutrements

Seemantini Godbole, Lowe’s EVP and CIO, said CNBC the retailer is bringing many of the concepts it applies for shoppers to the metaverse initiative.

“While shopping and becoming inspired, individuals want to put things together in the virtual world before starting their project,” she said. “Metaverse is the same. You want them to experience, feel, and comprehend before starting the real project.”

Godbole said many metaverse assets were built as 3D digital copies of tangible objects to assist online customers visualize real-life dimensions and characteristics. Lowe’s uses virtual and augmented reality to let shoppers design a kitchen online or map their home’s floor plan using a smartphone. “Our customers want to use VR and AR” said Godbole. “We’re applying some metaverse lessons”

Lowe’s doesn’t offer a physical good with a virtual one or a connection to its website from metaverse platforms, Godbole added. This may change.

“In the future, we could think about how all these things link and make sure metaverse users can shop these items on Lowe’s.com or in our stores,” she said.

Thalberg said the average metaverse player is “very young,” younger than the average Lowe’s customer or homeowner.

“Kids who use Minecraft and Roblox build and design a lot, which is intriguing. This idea of being able to construct, decorate, design, and develop is key, she said. We see a tremendous wave of millennial new homeowners who aren’t afraid of technology, so catching them young is wonderful.

Ambush 3D releases new metaverse wearable

Published

on

The shoe brand AMBUSH is introducing a new project that will be fairly unprecedented in the world of fashion. The project will involve the creation of a pair of 3D-printed shoes that can be worn in the metaverse as well as in regular life. The sneaker, which goes by the name 100S, was produced in collaboration with Zellerfeld, a shoe maker. Zellerfeld was also responsible for producing the totally 3D printed HERON01 sneaker, which was displayed a few months ago.

The footwear was designed with the intention of promoting a circular economy through the use of recycled materials

In addition to its physical counterpart, the model is also offered as a digital counterpart known as an NFT. This NFT can be unlocked and worn within the AMBUSH SILVER FCTRY metaverse.

Since it has been a few months, the idea of the metaverse has been used more and more, and many concepts have been formed around this virtual world, which is still somewhat abstract for many people. Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, offers this definition of the term: “In the metaverse, you will be able to do almost anything you can imagine. You can get together with friends and family, work, learn, play, shop, and create. There will also be completely new experiences that don’t really fit how we think about computers or phones today.” It would appear that this is now supposed to also involve the wearing of shoes that have been manufactured using 3D printing technology.

AMBUSH is a brand that has established itself as a new stayholder in the world of fashion. It was established by the American-Korean designer Yoon Ahn. A point of reference that provides even more forward-thinking items by making use of 3D technologies. Concerning the 100S, it is challenging to determine with absolute certainty which procedure was utilized.

The bright color and attention-grabbing design of the sneaker ensure that it will not be overlooked, that much is certain.

SeaCrypt is an incoming NFT collection

Published

on

SeaCrypt is an important milestone in the history of NFT projects because it was the first one to feature a decentralized lifeform. In a world without a central authority, every fish has complete freedom to swim and move about.

Both NFTs and metaverses will be around for the foreseeable future. SeaCrypt NFTs are not intended to be confined to a single metaverse; rather, the goal is for them to be easily translated to and incorporated into various metaverses.

“In this planet, not a single creature is made with the same characteristics as the others. Because of natural selection and the passage of millions of years, the only organisms that have survived to the present day are the healthiest and most attractive ones.”

“We at SeaCrypt think that our community is deserving of NFT and metaverse pets with similar levels of complexity in their evolutionary paths. This belief resulted in the creation of the very first NFT pets and metaverse pets, each of which has a genetic representation that is comparable to 102500 individual works of art. In comparison, there are only 1044 molecules spread throughout the atmosphere of our planet.”

According to the company’s founders, consumers are able to form an emotional connection with the fishes through interactions with the fishes

In the near future, users will have the option of decorating their SeaCrypt aquariums with SeaCrypt’s existing décor or designer assets sourced from the designer community.

“You are the master artist behind the NFT artwork that you created. If you give your memories to your NFT fish in the form of a birthmark, it will be able to take on your memories’ specific characteristics, such as its shape, pattern, color, and soul.”

During the process of hatching or breeding fish, a birthmark will also be “carved” onto the iris of the fish genetically, in addition to the characteristics that the fish already possesses. This technique cannot be undone and has lasting effects. As a consequence of this, SeaCrypt fishes serve as the most effective emotional links between users and the most cherished memories of those people.

In the following phases of SeaCrypt’s development, gaming will be the primary focus. The SeaCrypt fishes are superior to the NFT varieties. As long as users own SeaCrypt fishes, they will be eligible to take part in a variety of on-chain games that will be available.
