Disney, Second Life, and K-pop step towards Meta

3 min reading

Philip Rosedale, the founder of Second Life, enters the game, Disney's patent for a "virtual-world simulator in a real-world venue" indicates a Metaverse entry, and Animal Concerts teams up with Kakao's Klaytn project in South Korea.

After the news that Facebook's parent firm would be relaunching to switch its focus to the Metaverse, various projects have begun comparable efforts in the virtual world, ranging from buying property to examining the limits about what this universe has to serve.

What if you could go to Disneyland in the Metaverse?

The amusement company operating some of the world's top famous theme parks just obtained a patent for a "virtual-world simulator in a real-world venue."

However the Los Angeles Times revealed that Disney has "no current plans" to utilise the simulator in the coming years, the implementation indicates that Disneyland and Disney World visitors may ultimately see Metaverse sights at one or most of the theme parks in the United States, Hong Kong, China, France, and Japan.

The technology would operate by detecting guests' cell phones and then creating and presenting individualised 3D effects onto surrounding physical places, like walls and other park items. Disney's potential venture into the Metaverse, according to the patent application, might "provide users with realistic and highly immersive individualized 3D virtual experiences without requiring those users to wear an augmented reality AR viewing device."

Is there K-pop in the Metaverse?

Animal Concerts, a Metaverse concert organiser, stated on Monday that it has signed an agreement with South Korean unicorn Kakao's Klaytn network as part of a strategy to expand its presence in the country's entertainment sector. Colin Fitzpatrick, CEO of Animal Concerts, asserts that "Klaytn's major goals are NFTs and Metaverse."

"Technical limitations limit how many people can actually attend a concert in the Metaverse," Fitzpatrick explained, referring to scalability concerns. He intends to create a network of virtual arenas throughout current and emerging Metaverse platforms to organise concerts showcasing a wide range of talent, including K-pop artists.

The founder of Second Life reappears as the project evolves

Linden Lab, the company powering the virtual online world Second Life, disclosed on Thursday that founder Philip Rosedale, together with Metaverse team members from San Francisco-based VR company High Fidelity, would reenter the project as a strategic consultant. The inclusion of new and existing talent, as per the firm, would assist Second Life's admission into the Metaverse.

“Virtual worlds don’t need to be dystopias,” Rosedale added. “Big Tech giving away VR headsets and building a metaverse on their ad-driven, behaviour-modification platforms isn’t going to create a magical, single digital utopia for everyone.”

Second Life, which emerged in 2003, was one of the first virtual worlds experiences available before the connection of modern social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Rosedale left Linden Labs as CEO in 2008 before launching High Fidelity in 2013. His reappearance could be a defining moment for introducing innovative Metaverse-themed ideas into existing platforms.
