Pocket RD inc. (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Atsuya Momikura), operator of AVATARIUM, a 3D avatar creation platform using cutting-edge XR technology, and Pocket Collection, an NFT marketplace for the creation and distribution of next-generation avatars, has joined the Metaverse Standards Forum™.
The Metaverse Standards Forum™ is a standards organization for the Metaverse operated by The Khronos Group Inc.
The Metaverse Standards Forum™ was established to ensure mutual respect and interoperability of all standardized technologies with the participation of many prominent companies and standards organizations.
Pocket RD is constantly improving and acquiring patents for avatars, NFT2.0 and other WEB3 technologies, and is also working on industry standardization in order to be of service to many platforms. For example, in avatar technology, file format alone is not enough, the number of polygons and rig positions are platform-dependent, and inter-compatibility is low.Even in NFT2.0, the content of information stored varies depending on the application source, and there are still issues to be addressed in rulemaking to promote DAO, rather than just a digital certificate.
In order to grasp the current situation and to aim for standardization, we agree with the purpose and will participate in many discussions to create the future.
