Mapping the World in 3D: Over the Reality’s Vision with Web3
As we stand on the precipice of a new digital age, the metaverse beckons with unparalleled potential. Diego Di Tommaso, the co-founder and CEO of Over the Reality, introduces us to the dynamic realm of Over—a platform driven by the power of Web3 and geolocalized Augmented Reality (AR). Dive with us into a world where digital landscapes merge with our physical existence.
Blurring Realities with Over
Over’s ambitious vision is simple yet profound: creating a comprehensive 3D map of our world. This dream is brought to life through AR, where users have the freedom to own, innovate, connect, and even monetize. Beyond mere digital interactions, Over ventures into a territory where digital assets become as tangible as the air we breathe, anchored in the potent realm of Web3.
The Next Big Thing: Spatial Computing
Our technological evolution points towards Spatial Computing, where digital content blends seamlessly with our physical surroundings. With our cognitive architecture designed to process 3D spaces, integrating AR into our lives feels instinctive. But, as with any budding technology, AR faces its challenges.
Navigating AR’s Challenges
AR’s dream is slightly dimmed by two significant hindrances—the lack of universally accessible smart glasses and the constraints of GPS accuracy. Over, however, offers a fresh perspective. Ditching traditional GPS reliance, Over harnesses computer vision, employing a “digital twin” methodology. This approach leans on the community’s efforts, translating real-world imagery into accurate 3D Point Clouds, forming the backbone of AR experiences.
Crowdsourcing the World
The ambitious vision to map our world in 3D rests largely on the shoulders of Over’s community. Adopting a land ownership model, users gain publishing rights, determining which locations get mapped. Their impressive stats—a culmination of 18,000 maps by 1,200 testers in three months—testify to the project’s momentum.
Exploring from Afar
Beyond merely mapping, Over is in the business of replicating—or creating digital twins. Their sophisticated AI breathes life into a few static images, rendering fully-realized digital locations. This fusion of AR and VR ensures users can immerse themselves, regardless of their geographical location.
The Triad of Over’s Success
The magic of Over lies in its three-tiered system: Ownership, Mapping, and Builder. While Ownership cements a user’s rights to curate content, Mapping provides the spatial foundation. The Builder, meanwhile, offers tools for all—from amateurs to seasoned developers.
Fostering Digital Creators
The creator community within Over is burgeoning. Their resilience, coupled with Over’s mission, paints a future where the metaverse isn’t just a fleeting trend—it’s our next home.
With Web3 and AR setting the stage for the next technological revolution, Over is poised to redefine our interaction paradigms. A million users strong, Over is not just creating a new reality—it’s leading the charge.
