Precision Design Group is a Richmond garment factory that has spent nearly 30 years pattern making and manufacturing clothing is now expanding into the metaverse.
In addition, Precision Design Group, located on Viking Way near Bridgeport Road, recently introduced a new service that allows them to turn tangible clothing into NFT (non-fungible token) “digital wearables.”
Users can wear these digital wearables
Users’ virtual identities or avatars can wear these digital wearables in the metaverse as they mingle. In addition, users can participate with its many communities or attend live, virtual events like as concerts.
“It’s pretty neat,” said Ben Christy, Precision’s managing partner. “Because we have the opportunity to take existing patterns that we normally create for a physical product. And apply them to a digital garment, a digital wearable, that people can wear or sell in one of the many metaverse platforms that are out there”. He went on to say that his company is the only one in Canada that makes garments for the metaverse.
Christy said that the metaverse is now made up of multiple separate platforms. And virtual worlds, rather than having “one central universe.”
Some of these metaverse worlds feature their own digital economy, where users can make, purchase, and sell items. Decentraland, for example, makes use of the MANA cryptocurrency to allow users to buy and sell digital real estate while exploring. Engaging with, and playing games in the virtual world.
Technologies such as virtual and augmented reality can make up the metaverse
The metaverse can comprise virtual worlds and communities accessed by computers. Game consoles, and phones, as well as technologies such as virtual and augmented reality.
According to Christy, some metaverse environments only enable you to make one item. Which you may gift or put on an avatar you control, whilst other systems. Such as Decentraland, allow users to create a digital garment, for example. And sell as much of it as they want.
While this provides clients with commercial prospects, Christy believes that the metaverse can also provide people with access to apparel that they would otherwise be unable to obtain in the actual world.
