What to expect during the event
If we only associate the Metaverse with social media platforms and various NFT or Crypto projects, we might be inclined to think that it is simply a playground for grifters and charlatans; however, the Metaverse has the potential, now, to be much more than a place to immerse yourself in an imaginary world. Designers and Engineers in the built environment can benefit infinitely by being able to see Digital Representations (Twins) of their schemes which can be manipulated, shared, and updated in real time.
