2023-01-12 CES report
Metaverse and Metadata at CES® 2023
The CES 2023 theme was a little unusual for consumer tech show, but it was up to date, relevant and contemporary: “Tech Solving the World’s Biggest Challenges”. Tech development is often associated with poor environment credentials or not in the long term interest of humanity, but perhaps only now we are entering an age where technology could help save the world in many ways broken by human interaction.
One of the six most important tech trends nominated by Steve Koenig, VP Research for CTA was Metaverse / Web3.0. Koenig said that we will see legit substance forming around the Metaverse in both tech innovation and business strategy. As examples he offered
- Visualization by TouchCast
- Digital Scent by OVR technology
both of which enhance the audio-video experience we have bee used to have until now.
The conference session also had Metaverse topics with important speakers and well knowing innovators such as…
- The road to the open Metaverse,
- Influencers and Actors in the Metaverse
- Metaverse meets Office Space
However, the most important for MetaRex project appears to be the Conference Stream at the Aria conference centre:
- Hollywood streaming and Metaverse
where we met a plethora of like minded colleagues, including Leslie Shannon - Head of Ecosystem and Trend Scouting for Nokia based in Silicon Valley and the author of Interconnected Realities : How the Metaverse Will Transform Our Relationship to Technology Forever
Needless to say that engineering part of Metaverse today in term of standartization is much weaker than the futurist dreams about it, so here we are: Closing the gap. Metarex roar!
