Italian company OVR is announcing today the creation of the so-called OVR Land Map.
OVR Mapping: the metaverse to another level
Thanks to the powers of AI, in fact, OVR is able to generate a 3D map of the physical world starting from simple pictures, no lidar or other expensive HW needed, just the smartphone in your pocket. All of the OVR users will be able to contribute to creating the biggest detailed 3D map of the real world.
This revolutionary technology of open mapping system will bring the OVR AR Metaverse to a whole other level: currently, when geolocalization an AR asset in an OVRLand there’s the limitation of the GPS accuracy that has meters of error outdoor while is totally unreliable indoor, a scanned OVRLand will have a localization precision up to ì0 cm.
A new AR experience
That opens up a whole new realm of opportunities in creating AR experiences that before were not technically feasible: localizing experiences on a specific wall or a statue outdoors, precisely superimposing AR to existing buildings, geolocating assets indoor and on multiple floors, to name a few… No other platform, nor in the blockchain, nor the traditional world, can currently achieve this.
But this is not only about AR precision and creating a wider bridge between the physical and the digital world; this is also about creating new economies on OVR.
For example, Axie Infinity demonstrated what the potential of play-to-earn is. It enabled a crowd of players to earn a living in the Metaverse, also creating social inclusion between some of the poorer populations on our planet.
OVR, with its technology, will unleash the potential of Map to Earn, so the company will enable a crowd of OVRLand Scanners to earn OVR tokens by simply scanning physical locations with the smartphone they have in their pockets.
An amazing infrastructure
The company foresees this activity to be subsidized by OVR with a part of the revenues from OVRLand sales, by OVRLand owners that will decide to make their OVRLands even more valuable and usable by adding the 3D mapping and finally institutions that will harness the OVR platform to populate the Public Utility Layer of their territories.
In the last year, treasure hunters physically went to over one million locations to collect our tokens, which would be already 300.000 mapped sq Km!
And that’s not all, another important question is what parts of the world should be mapped?
OVR has an answer to this question, OVRLand buyers generated a “Wisdom of the Crowds” based map, 6k+ investors voting with their wealth on the most important locations in the world.
Davide Cuttini, CEO of OVR, talks about the future of AR Metaverses:
“When I imagine a world where reality and virtuality are fused, where thanks to small contact lenses I can’t distinguish real and unreal projections, the crowdsourced 3D world scanning is the fundamental brick to create an amazing new infrastructure. Without the complete understanding of the real world through AI models available from commodity devices, no AR platforms will see a real adoption. I think that OVR is in the right direction to democratize access to this amazing new way to live our lives!”.
