Meta's vision of the metaverse is years away but it'll alter how we use Facebook
Meta will launch the first drag show in the 'metaverse' – a collective virtual shared space featuring avatars of real people. 'Queens of the Metaverse' is a mixed reality drag show that will demonstrate how technology can 'unlock possibilities in fashion design', Meta says. The firm has enlisted three drag acts – Blu Hydrangea (winner of 'RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK vs. The World'), Tia Kofi (pop artist and star of 'RuPaul’s Drag Race' Season 2) and Adam All (one of the world’s most well known 'Drag Kings'). They will each debut a 'show-stopping drag look' using Meta’s VR and AR technologies, created by three British designers from the LGBTQ+ community. Anyone who has watched 'RuPaul’s Drag Race' will be familiar with the extravagant fashion designs on display by some of the best drag artists. But the new show will use VR, AR, and avatars to free themselves from the 'limitations of the physical world' and create even more outlandish outfits, Meta says. The outfits have all been designed virtually, will be made into physical garments and will be debuted at an in-person event to be held in London next month. Full story here
