Lidar Sensors Cruise From Self-Driving Cars to Digital Twins and the Metaverse

Lidar applications could grow alongside the numerous digital twin use cases that are emerging in a variety of industries and settings. Lidar technology consists of a single component that reliably scans a laser signal over an area and a receiver that precisely measures the response.

Among a slew of advanced technologies promising to create tomorrow’s self-driving cars, lidar technology has gained traction. However, lidar sensors are also being used in efforts to create digital twins and metaverse use cases.

A key feature of digital twins is the ability to update models of the real world with high fidelity and frequency. Lidar technology complements stereoscopic cameras …

3D Reconstruction Models Make Metaverse More Possible

There are numerous challenges in creating a perfect metaverse, such as physical properties of materials such as weight, fold, and so on. One of the challenges of lighting a model that represents the real-life quality of the object was recently resolved with the NeRF model.

Ben Mildenhall, a Google researcher based in London, released a snippet of their newly developed 3D reconstruction model called RawNeRF in June 2022. This new tool converts 2D images into well-lit 3D scenes. It is based on their open-source project, MultiNeRF.

Mildenhall teased a video of their most recent NeRF development, which combined their mip-NeRF 360, RawNeRF, and Ref-NeRF models. …

How Digitalization and the Metaverse Are Revolutionizing the Retail Industry

Future retail establishments, like the one in the Mall of the Emirates, will make use of technology and data to offer insights into consumer behavior.

By 2026, it’s expected that we’ll be spending an hour a day in the virtual world, therefore the expression “see you in the metaverse!” will be very common.

Where will we be going, though? Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and even digital clothing will be among the most eagerly anticipated possibilities. Brands like Adidas, Gucci, and Vans have already established themselves.

Low-Code ‘Metaversing’ and What it Means for the Creator Economy

The metaverse may appear to be a better place to park one's money. Regardless of the reason, we now have an ideal environment for startup innovation.

McKinsey announced a little over a year ago that COVID-19 crammed ten years of expected e-commerce growth into just 90 days (a claim I think is open for debate). While the world was focused on e-commerce, another market segment was experiencing spectacular growth: Web 3.0.

It’s fair to say that the Web 3/non-fungible token (NFT) space has seen a decade’s …
