The latest VR frontier up for grabs is the Metaverse. The latest entrant is a partnership between Next Galaxy Group and Eon Reality. Eon Reality is best known for building virtual reality CAVEs for universities and industrial use. They have jointly announced plans to build a virtual reality Metaverse via CEEK; a VR platform that lets you view and participate with all kinds of entertainment while wearing products like the Oculus Rift.
While additional information is not available yet, Eon Reality as a software partner makes sense because they already have an infrastructure in place for VR software development. It’s not a huge stretch for them to re-purpose these tools for proprietary Metaverse development. We’ll see how things turn out!
Other brands to keep an eye on include VRChat, Altaspace, Alterspace, Second Life, Facebook and more.
