The partnership will simplify users’ participation in the metaverse by enabling viewers to explore linked virtual worlds, concerts, and AI multiplayer games through their LG TVs.
Users will have access to “ultra high fidelity linked virtual worlds” and activities, such as virtual concerts and AI-generative multiplayer games, according to a press statement on January 4.
Co-founder and Oorbit’s chief technology officer Pooya Koosha shared:
“Our in-house developed technology is the thread that binds virtual worlds together and makes it simple for brands and developers to introduce their experiences into the metaverse. The next stage in making the metaverse available to everyone is scaling our technology for millions of LG TV consumers.
