Strategic Innovation Director Johnny and Technical Innovation Director Elisha jump into Somnium Space to join a regular meetup, a networking, dance party event with attendees from all over the world. Exploring the world through teleportation seemed as if it would be an efficient process but we ended up running into UI issues attempting to teleport. Eventually, we teleported off to parcels of land in development. Walking through, Johnny explained how they could be rented or purchased. Another usability issue popped up when we tried to start driving borrowed race cars to zoom off into faraway lands. Finally, we step out of our race cars to explore a few NFT galleries, including the Hall of Fame. In this area, we find NFT art with music and even a podium where presenters can gather an audience for events.
Immersing ourselves fully using the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset was an interesting experience. Find out our full first impressions by watching our video:
