Spatial is now offering a full-body avatar option in its app, along with the ability for users to bring in avatars created in Wolf3D’s Ready Player Me platform, which uses selfies to generate realistic-looking, full-body cartoon avatars for games.
Ready Player Me currently offers around 300 customization options, and Spatial says it will support all of them.
“In the last six months, we’ve seen a lot of use cases that have both inspired and astonished us. We’re constructing an online environment where you can almost do everything!” Spatial’s Head of Growth, Jacob Loewenstein, stated.
“Through personalized immersive places, our creators and collaborators continue to push the frontiers of possibility, bringing communities together. Adding legs to our avatars is more than a cosmetic change; it transforms the experience and introduces a whole new audience.
We’re dedicated to promoting diversity, self-identity, and representation in virtual spaces, and we believe fashion is an important part of that.”
Some Spatial avatars can be sold as NFTs, with the avatars having the ability to be ported to other VR, desktop, and mobile apps as well.
Avatars will be able to create exhibitions, host live events, and socialize more dynamically in Spatial experiences and Web3 with the Ready Player Me connection. Spatial has also included full-body photorealistic avatars to its portfolio.
