Abbey Road Red has revealed that XONE is the 17th start-up to join its music technology incubation programme.
The Web3 firm merges social features, mobile-first AR technology and blockchain mechanics. Its core product, an iOS and Android application, gives users the ability to design and build cutting-edge 3D worlds called XONEs.
“Recreating the concept of a bedroom wall, each XONE is a haven of cultural identity; a place where users can showcase posters, 2D or 3D NFTs and their digital goods, together with streamed music and explore it all and more in mobile augmented reality,” said a statement.
XONE aims to encourage creators, fans and artists to move into the metaverse by creating an accessible social media interface for showcasing and sharing digital identity.
The launch of the Abbey Road Studios Spatial Audio Forum five years ago marked expansion into new areas, including immersive audio and XR formats, and Abbey Road Red is now extending this with XONE and the AR metaverse.
XONE is currently developing a set of gaming and social features to create hangouts, avatar integrations, and large-scale music experiences. It plans for users to access digital merch drops, host listening parties, and visit live performances from artists in private XONEs or public community spaces.
