University of Sao Paulo Reports Research To Be Carried Out For 3D Modeling, Augmented Reality Device

The University of Sao Paulo (USP) said that the metaverse-centric research will be carried out by research groups interested in 3D modeling, psychology and human behavior, and the effectiveness of virtual and augmented reality devices.

It has been reported that these research domains will be evaluated within the context of the metaverse to understand how the new virtual world impacts user interactions.

However, USP professor Marcos A. Simplicio Jr. highlighted that this is the first time USP had received a nonfungible token (NFT) via partnership. The token in question is a rare piece of land in the United States of Mars (USM) metaverse, which is being built in collaboration with other universities.

Simplicio said:

"USP is the first university in Latin America to have a partnership with USM to support the construction of its metaverse."

The report said that the partnership will initially feature a collaboration with researchers stemming from an existing agreement called the University Blockchain Research Initiative (UBRI), which is sponsored by Ripple. As reported, opportunities involving the metaverse were discussed at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting, which concluded last Thursday.

Likewise, the panel titled “The Possibilities of the Metaverse” explored how metaverse technologies can be used to enhance children’s learning. The panel featured Philip Rosedale, co-founder of High Fidelity; Pascal Kaufmann, founder of Mindfire Foundation; Peggy Johnson, CEO of Magic Leap; Hoda AlKhzaimi, assistant research professor at New York University, Abu Dhabi and Edward Lewin, vice president of Lego Group.

Lewin said during the panel discussion:

"One in three people using the internet are young adults and children, so I would really focus on building from kids’ perspective, given they are the future users."

Thus, the University of Sao Paulo and United States of Mars (USM), which recently rebranded from Radio Caca, have announced an agreement that aims to promote research around the technical, economic, and legal aspects of the Metaverse.
