The market leader for next-gen GPS tech, NextNav, is partnering with the cloud platform revolutionizing 3D, AR, and VR content, echo3D. As a part of the agreement, NextNav’s vertical location service, Pinnacle, will provide echo3D developers with 3D location data required to build immersive AR and VR content.
The echo3D platform offers tools and infrastructure to create faster and lighter 3D, AR, and VR experiences to over 16,000 developers. With NextNav’s 3D location technology, the developers could create more immersive and realistic digital content tied to the physical world.
“Our partnership with echo3D enables developers to build immersive experiences, games, and applications that reflect our real world,” said Dan Hight, NextNav VP of Business Development and Partnerships. “As we look ahead toward the building of the metaverse, our collaboration with echo3D marks a key development in enabling the digital layer that will soon exist on top of our physical world.”
echo3D helps developers deliver virtual experiences to any smartphone, headset, or browser through its ability to convert, compress, and optimize 3D models, animations, and interactive content. Developers have built cloud-connected games, AR advertisement campaigns, NFT marketplaces, and more using the echo3D platform.
“Integrating NextNav Pinnacle into our platform will propel the development of metaverse-focused spaces and experiences forward,” said Alon Grinshpoon, co-founder and CEO of echo3D. “Precise location capabilities, including the vertical dimension, are foundational to the future of immersive mixed-reality experience. Alongside NextNav, we’ll continue providing creators with the capabilities needed to bring the promise of AR, VR, and the metaverse to life.”
