Saudi asset digitization company FalconViz has announced the launch of its first metaverse lab in Saudi Arabia, offering tools that can be applied to any building information modeling project, handle giga-projects and deliver mixed-reality experiences. The company sees the launch as just the beginning of its journey of contributing to achieving the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. (...)
FalconViz defines the metaverse as a 3D real-time social medium where people can create and engage in shared experiences across many modalities of converged digital and real worlds. Before digital twins and even drone-based photogrammetry were known by the public, the company had been developing the tools of the future.
Dr. Neil Smith, FalconViz’s chief information officer and co-founder, said: “At the heart of this is digital twins, which we have been creating using drones and high-definition laser scanning for years. Digital twinning is an industry that is projected to reach over $125 billion by 2030. Now, however, within the metaverse, we can finally allow stakeholders to view their critical assets as they are in real life, enabling an embodied immersive experience. It also allows stakeholders to simulate spaces, objects and processes.”
