Keynote: Stepping into working in the metaverse
As the metaverse gains increasing relevance in our lives, we are at the forefront of defining how it will shape our future. With the rise of remote work, distributed teams, and immersive collaboration outside the office, it’s essential to understand its potential impact on the future of work.
Our presentation will explore how people who are currently working mostly on 2D surfaces and why understanding the value of 3D is crucial for the future. We will discuss how to think about an architecture that can span across 2D and 3D, highlighting the considerations to make.
We will also examine 2D dimensionality mapping onto 3D and vice versa, and how these experiences are unique in the context of work. With an insight into the opportunities and challenges of this technological transformation and how we as product designers can prepare for it.
By being at the forefront of understanding what the metaverse means for us, we can position ourselves to thrive in the future of work. Join us to discover how we can pave the way for a successful integration of 3D technology into our work lives.
