Meta, Microsoft and 31 more companies have united to form an organization to promote the creation of open standards with respect to Metaverse Tech. The organization called the Metaverse Standards Forum will focus on setting standards for making every single metaverse on the Internet interoperable, which would ideally allow these worlds to communicate.
Metaverse Standard Forum is born
While the metaverse is a loose concept that each company interprets and builds as it pleases, some think it is important to connect these individual worlds. This is why other companies such as Meta, Microsoft and Epic Games have gathered together to found the Metaverse Standards Forum, an organization created to promote the interoperability of these Metaverses.
According to the launch PR statement:
[The body] Practical, action-based projects such as implementation prototyping, hackathons, plugfests, and Metaverse will focus on open-source tooling to accelerate testing and adoption of standards, while also developing coherent terminology and deployment guidelines.
The Forum will not create standards on its own. The organization will act as a center for integration of various Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) in areas including VR, graphics and interaction, among others.
The creation of such a group is seen by some as a statement about the consensus in these companies on the importance of building open standards for the Metaverse concept. To this, Neil Trevet, president of Khronos, an organization that is part of the group, said:
The metaverse will bring together diverse technologies that require a set of interoperability standards to be created and maintained by multiple standards organizations.
some significant absence
While the group says it is an open organization, available free of charge to all interested groups, there are some big names that have not joined the group. Apple, one of the world’s biggest tech companies interested in VR and AR (Augmented Reality) technology, still hasn’t joined the forum. Other important gaming-based metaverses, such as Roblox, haven’t joined yet.
According to some experts, this suggests that even with an organization promoting standards on the subject, the standardization of the Metaverse, or the group of worlds that compose the Metaverse, would be a difficult task, providing platforms for a diversity of companies. are building. ,
