Innovation, collaboration & Tech

Innovation, collaboration & Tech

Techembrace is a company I founded to help users to use technology effectively.
What is the reason for this post?
I thought I would share with you some things for free, what I have learnt this year that you may or may not know.

1. During Tech week, I was impressed with the way the Fujitsu team approached collaboration, hence the video.

2. On LinkedIn, people were posting about Matthew Ball, who wrote The Metaverse, And How It Will Revolutionize Everything.
I decided to buy it after several comments about it.The book is intriguing but, more important, it reinforced my knowledge level on the subject.

3. I spoke to lots of exhibitors at the recent Exhibition about how Augmented Reality can add a virtual element to food packaging.
Some people said they didn’t have the skills and that it was too expensive.

A final thought was really thank you to all the people that collaborate, share knowledge and highlight the skills we need to move forward. #Innovation #embracetechnology


Tech moves at such a pace, the cover featured picture was taken at Crystal Palace study centre over 7 years ago long before anyone knew or even heard of the Metaverse. The video was from Tech week where I had the pleasure to see the latest innovation including driving a formula 1 racing car around brands hatch.

Meta Brings Metaverse-Like 3D Ads to Facebook and Instagram

Meta is bringing interactive 3D ads to Facebook and Instagram feeds, inspired by the metaverse pivot the company has begun to execute since its name change. This is possible due to a new integration in Meta’s AR (Augmented Reality) publishing library with a development from a company called Vntana.

Vntana Integrates 3D Ads in Meta’s Apps

Publishers will now be able to include 3D models in their ads on platforms like Facebook and Instagram, that belong to Meta. This innovation will allow any publisher to include these metaverse-inspired ads in the feeds the platforms, with users being able to interact with the objects. The innovation was presented by a company called Vntana, which acts as a service provider so other companies can include their 3D assets in social feeds.

According to a press release issued by the company, Vntana has exclusive access to Meta’s AR API to integrate their services to be able to achieve this goal. “Just like regular ads, 3D ads appear in users’ Facebook and Instagram feeds displaying interactive 3D models that users can tap and interact with – moving the product around to view all angles,” the release details.

Metaverse Monetization

This innovation might be part of the first monetization strategies that include metaverse-like elements in Meta-owned platforms. On this, Ashley Crowder, co-founder and CEO of Vntana, stated:

3D and AR technology in online ads is the next frontier for brands looking to connect with the digital consumer and is a great first step into the metaverse.

She further stated that this release might bring democratization to the ad space in these platforms, given that now more companies can bring their products to pontential customers. Customers are also said to benefit because they can see a more detailed model of these products in a 3D, metaverse-like view.

Chris Barbour, director of Augmented Reality Business Development & Partnerships at Meta, declared:

3D and AR open a new door of advertising possibilities for retail and e-commerce brands, improving the customer experience from the point of acquisition.

Meta’s flagship AR app, Horizon Worlds, which offers a set of metaverse experiences for users, is currently not being monetized by the company. This technology might be used in the future to allow Meta to monetize and include ads from different brands in these spaces.

What are the important steps to creating a metaverse virtual world?

What are the important steps to creating a metaverse virtual world?

The metaverse can easily expand the massive virtual world and makes it more collaborative, immersive, and interactive when compared to the internet. In spite of many technologies and entrepreneurs currently available, blockchain technology came into existence as an amazing technological framework that supports and assists in creating an effective ecosystem, especially for the metaverse. Nowadays, we are already having a basic version of a metaverse available in the Gaming NFT marketplaces. Many top gaming companies are showing interest to build their Blockchain Metaverse projects are now looking forward to the metaverse space, which reflects that virtual reality and metaverse are the future.

What is a metaverse?

The Metaverse is a three-dimensional, online, and ever-existing world that is created of various virtual spaces. Day-to-day tasks may be done online, offering remote meetings and entertainment very common. Metaverse is usually referred to as yet to be created, but certain platforms have created elements more similar to Metaverse.

Important steps to create a metaverse virtual world

Metaverse is known to be an interconnection of various technologies mainly focused on networking. Let’s find out and understand clearly what is required to be implemented in each and every step.

Choose a metaverse platform

If you are looking to launch a robust metaverse app or space, the important thing you are required to do is to select a proper metaverse platform. You need to either select from the already launched metaverse platforms in the market, such as, Facebook Meta. You can also select to create your own metaverse platform right from the scratch. However, creating your own metaverse platform will be costlier but more appropriate for custom metaverse needs, especially for businesses and enterprises. The platforms that are being available in the market nowadays are in their growing stages and due to that reason, the functionalities, features, developer communities can not be that evolved.

Design the metaspace

When you have selected the required metaverse platform, the next step is designing the metaspace. A metaspace is an app, a virtual conference hall or a virtual home theater, or a virtual meeting room. Metaspace is a virtual space, that will be accessed through a VR headset. Inside the metaspace, users may interact with the environment as well as other users in it. So, if you are thinking to create a virtual meeting room for the business, you may be required for designing a virtual metaspace that may be added easily to the metaverse.

Build an interaction layer

The next important step is to create an interaction layer with which the user will be able to interact in the metaspace that has been designed. For instance, a 3D type for a meeting room will be useless without an option for users for interacting inside it. The interaction layer refers to the access criteria, user controls, navigation controls, and communication protocols for the proper interaction between various users. The interaction layer refers to the integration with third-party software and tools that are required to assist the overall metaspace functioning.

Build an interoperability layer

Interoperability standards to enable the operational tasks will support the sharing and exchange of data between various systems. The aim of interoperability is to use and access data and various digital objects independently by both machines and humans. Interoperability standards will be a common language with a set of expectations that are common and allows interoperability between any two parties. Metaverse will support any payment gateway that enables the transfer of virtual crypto or money. Selecting a blockchain to have transparent, decentralized, and secure transactions will be needed to have a completely functional virtual world.

Cost to build a metaverse virtual world

Creating a virtual world for a metaverse will be a skill-intensive and time-consuming method that makes use of the rich technologies that are existing presently. Taking into consideration the fee that the user needs to pay the professionals or experts and also the energy and time spent on creating and launching the customized virtual world project need to cost from $20,000 to $300,000.
