Tokyo, Japan, 20th December 2021: Psychic VR Lab Co., Ltd., the developer behind the AR/MR/VR creative platform STYLY (https://styly.cc), has today announced a major update. In the future, while leveraging the existing platform, STYLY will implement additional functions that enable the delivery of unique AR/MR content in urban spaces, creating a digital metaverse overlay for the real-world.
STYLY will be able to import 3D mapping data of cities to create and distribute AR/MR contents for cities around the world. By utilizing 3D data of each city (open data such as PLATEAU will be supported) in STYLY Studio, a production tool provided by STYLY, it will be possible to create and publish AR/MR content and deliver works that match the urban space. The delivered AR/MR content can be experienced by visiting the actual location and using the STYLY app (supported via smartphone AR and smart glasses such as Nreal).
It is also possible to import urban data such as human flow and traffic, and AR/MR can be used to visualize information and for migration measures such as users walking around the city.
Currently, support for six major cities in Japan (Tokyo, Sapporo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kyoto, and Fukuoka) has been completed. In the future, in addition to domestic support, STYLY will support major overseas cities and accelerate the use of AR/MR in entertainment, such as city-scale AR/MR live performances in collaboration with IP.
In early 2022, STYLY will be enhanced by the release of a production tool that will utilize this function, and will provide an environment where artists and creators around the world can create and distribute city-scale AR/MR contents.
“We see the metaverse as ‘a new world that can now be perceived through technology-enhanced perception’.” States Masahiro Yamaguchi, CEO of Psychic VR Lad. “The world we perceive is subjective, based on our perceptions and experiences. I believe that the essence of the metaverse is that by expanding this perception through technology, we can perceive a world that was previously unrecognizable. Whether in the real space of a city or in a VR space, we would like to call the metaverse that originates from the human-centered real self the real metaverse.
“STYLY is a service with the tagline ‘Free your inner world’, which means to free the subjective world (your inner world) by expanding perception through technology. In the future, we would like to evolve and develop STYLY as an operating system for the real metaverse, a metaverse that starts from the real human-centered self.”
