The AR and metaverse technology solutions provider, Nextech AR Solutions, will now enable brands to mint NFTs of their 3D models and human holograms created by the company. The company is also planning to launch a feature to showcase these NFTs in any metaverse, including the Mini-Metaverses created with Nextech’s Metaverse creator app, ARitize Maps, in Q2, 2022.
The company recognizes the opportunity with the new 3D model to NFT capability to enable the brands to enter the metaverse and capitalize on ways to engage consumers and convert their products to 3D. Nextech currently possesses the world’s leading 3D modeling facilitator ARitize 3D, allowing retailers and manufacturers to convert their existing 2D product images or CAD files into exciting, high-quality 3D AR content.
At the moment, Nextech is working with brands as a managed service, with the capability of selling the NFT with unlockable content on third-party marketplaces, such as OpenSea, Rarible, and others. However, with the launch of its Metaverse Studio, minting 3D models created with ARitize 3D will be native to the platform.
Evan Gappelberg, CEO of Nextech, said, “As our 3D factory is rapidly gaining momentum with daily new customer wins, we strive to continue to offer state-of-the-art enhancements to our platform, which is exactly why we are bringing to market the ability to mint a 3D model as an NFT. We view this as an exciting new market and large potential revenue opportunity for Nextech. As we enable our 3D models to be showcased as NFTs in metaverses created with our spatial mapping SDK ARitize Maps, we offer a very unique value proposition for brands, businesses, and independents.”
“For example, a creative artist could turn their artwork into digital 3D models, mint those 3D models into NFTs, and then showcase their NFT artwork in a metaverse museum all powered by Nextech. Or a brand can turn a product into a 3D model, mint the 3D model, and control that 3D model all through the supply chain, offering the manufacturer a way to elevate the consumer experience and maintain brand control and integrity into the metaverse. I believe that with our innovative end-to-end solutions for ecommerce, we have truly taken a leadership position in the 3D modeling world, and now with our NFT minting of those 3D models called ARitize NFT, we have taken it to the next level and carved out our place in the metaverse,” he added.
