HTC announced it is taking steps to establish a presence in the metaverse industry, China Daily reported. Towards that, the company has entered into a partnership with companies and universities to ensure it has a comprehensive approach in the segment. It has partnered with the China Mobile Research Institute, China Unicom Research Institute, and the Tsinghua University on one hand and ZTE Corp and the Future Mobile Communication Forum on the other.
Charles Huang, corporate vice-president of HTC said they intend to tap into the business-to-business or B2B segment and is in the process of developing the right applications for the same. It has come up with an open metaverse platform named Viverse designed to offer a seamless experience to users, something that is also accessible via any device and from anywhere. The entire Viverse platform is powered by VR and AR technologies together with AI and blockchain technologies and high speed connectivity.
With the latest venture, Huang is optimistic to tap into various segments where the application of AR and VR tech is expected to see an exponential rise in the coming days. That includes education and training, healthcare, retail industry, and remote conferencing, to name a few.
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.
