Liquid Intelligent Technologies has unveiled a metaverse platform that aims to serve the African continent and connect everyone in the continent. Dubbed ‘Liquid Space’, it is a cross-platform application that runs across Virtual Reality devices, Windows, and mobile devices.
Liquid space enables the user to create their own world maps and invite their peers to collaborate and work together virtually in real-time.
In addition to that, Liquid Space runs on cloud services that help the individual to access their resources from the cloud to the Liquid Space app and share them with their peers in the virtual world. Other users can be able to interact with your resources when you share them. Such interactions include scaling, rotation, transformation, grabbing, and placing objects just like real-world objects.
Liquid Intelligent Technologies’ Lead Software Engineer, Isaack Hussein, says that this platform helps the company to achieve its mission which is connecting everyone, and leaving no one behind.
“Communications and interactions between peers have always been an important role across organizations and institutions and the way we interact over the network has also played an important role,” Isaack noted, “What if we could create our own virtual worlds for workspaces and learning? What if it is a collaborative platform that allows anyone to have shared virtual experiences on a variety of devices? What if we could make content dynamic and interactive on the fly? All of these and many more are possible with Liquid Space.”
Additionally, Space allows you to share a variety of 3D files in your room so that members can view them from all angles, grab them with their hands and interact with them. It also has an engine service that can detect a different kind of animation associated with your file. That means you can load your 3D resources that have a different kind of animation and share them with your friends or colleagues. You can also choose a different style that you want to share based on your asset preferences.
Users can also open their 2D files from their connected cloud account like PDF, images, PowerPoints, and Excel and share them in the 3D immersive world. With this feature, users can interact with the 2D files and cast them on the big screen and giving them the ability to present and share their 2D documents during their meeting sessions.
“We are also working to bring a feature that will allow our users to get their resources directly from third parties like Microsoft and Google accounts connected to the Liquid Space platform. With such a feature, users can easily retrieve their assets from One Drive or Google Drive and cast them on their immersive room session,” Isaack further said.
On his part, Liquid’s Group Chief Technology and Innovation officer, Ben Roberts, said that the company developed Liquid Space to be an inclusive metaverse for the African continent.
“We are looking to provide huge cases to help people with teaching and marketing their products but we are also looking at how to help the African creatives to monetize their work and how to use these in a collaborative space where people can play, learn, collaborate and use 3D objects that have been created and put into that space,” Ben Roberts said.
