Psychic VR Lab is now hosting an extended reality (XR) NFT art exhibition at Times Square, New York, XRToday reported. The company which prides itself as a developer of the Metaverse content creation suite STYLY is hosting the event along with Japanese event partners Animoca Brands KK Corporation, Ucollex International Limited, and Madworld Hong Kong.
Those who are unable to attend the event or are living elsewhere can still be part of the fun as all of the content can be accessed via the company app using the HTC Vive or Meta headsets. The event is going to be live from June 20 to 23 2022 and is seeing the participation of XR artists of the likes of Hiroshi Mori, Kojo Masayuki, Kenichi Asano, Crazy Chocolate, Minori Murata, Ryo Takegawa, and Kenta Nakano.
“The future of digital art has never been more exciting, with the ability to create location-specific content for everyone to enjoy,” said CMO of Psychic VR Lab, Ryohei Watanabe. The artists are using famous tourist hangouts as their canvas to overlay their XR creations which visitors can experience using their smartphones.
STYLY had earlier introduced tools to create XR geotagged Metaverse content in December 2021. This allowed creators to overlay their creations on real-world objects which included even the urban landscape of the day. The service which does not require users to scan a QR code for viewing is available in Tokyo, Sapporo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kyoto, and Fukuoka.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
