Yuga Labs has created one of the most popular new NFT brands in the form of The Bored Ape Yacht Club, and it recently showed off a beta vision of a gaming metaverse that it plans to create.
Dubbed Otherside, the metaverse demo was made possible by Improbable, a Cambridge, England-based company that has been experimenting with technology to build massive gaming worlds for years.
In the First Trip demo of Otherside, Yuga and Improbable were able to bring 4,500 players together at once in a 3D world. What was remarkable about that was that the players enjoyed full physics effects for their characters, and they could speak with each other using 3D audio and hear all the players at once.
This demo is the kind of thing that makes some people think there is a future in nonfungible tokens (NFTs), which use the blockchain to authenticate digital items such as Bored Ape characters.
