Nextech AR To Spin Out Real-World Augmented Reality Spatial Mapping Platform ARitize Maps — VR/AR Association – The VRARA
Nextech AR To Spin Out Real-World Augmented Reality Spatial Mapping Platform ARitize Maps is bringing the Metaverse to the Masses with a No-Code Web Based end to end Creator Platform. On June 3, 2022, the Company announced that Nextech and PC 1 Corp. Enter into Binding Agreement to Complete Qualifying Transaction on the TSX-V.
Evan Gappelberg, CEO of Nextech AR commented, “We are now and have always been focused on increasing shareholder value, and through the spin out of the ARitize Maps application through one of our newly commercialized business units, I believe we are immediately creating shareholder value. The spin out will result in Aritize Maps being the principal asset of a stand-alone public company, in which Nextech will continue to be a significant shareholder. As a result, I do believe this new technology will get the recognition it deserves and see a positive revaluation, thereby benefiting Nextech shareholders through their continued indirect ownership interest in the technology.”
ARitize Maps (previously ARway) is a mobile app, all-in-one no code real-world Metaverse creation tool, with self-generating augmented reality (“AR”) mapping solutions for consumers and brands alike. The ARitize Maps offering will be paired with a no-code web based Creator Portal and SDK to form the Metaverse Experience Builder Platform (MEBP), launching to early adopters in July 2022. Creators can map, author and publish various Metaverse experiences ranging from wayfinding, to an array of AR experiences for exclusive branded activations.
With the ARitize Maps mobile app, anyone can spatially map their location within minutes, and populate it with interactive 3D content, augmented reality navigation, audio, text, images and more. Nextech provides a number of pre-loaded 3D objects, and creators can also upload their own OBJ/GLB files, and create their own 3D objects to populate their Metaverse. The platform has a Visual Position System (“VPS”) which Nextech refers to as Mapping and Localization where users can map and enable VPS in any area through the platform. Occlusion, Depth Sensing and segmentation are also available. Users can share their Metaverse with others, creating a new level of immersive interactivity for social, branding, advertising, gaming and more Metaverse experiences.
