Preface Partners with Meta to Launch a First Hand Metaverse Experience
(Hong Kong, 30 June 2022) The term ‘Metaverse’ has without a doubt become synonymous with technology’s latest developments, but how does one actually access it? Preface, the EdTech leader in Web3.0 and Metaverse, partners with Meta to launch the month-long multisensory “Metaverse Coffee” campaign, incorporating a series of first-hand Metaverse experiences. The campaign enables the mass public to experience leading AR/VR technologies and explore their implications for the future through captivating experiences encompassing Metaverse Coffee with Immersive VR Experience, Spark AR Workshops, and a cross-industry Symposium gathering the region’s Web3.0 leaders.
1. Experience | Travel to the Metaverse with Your Daily Coffee
From 1-31 July 2022, members of the public are invited to purchase a cup of “Metaverse Coffee” at any Preface Coffee & Wine locations, where they will receive an accompanying “boarding pass” to the Metaverse.
Preface partners with Meta by using machine learning techniques to identify the top 5 desired travel destinations of Hong Kong people during the COVID-19 pandemic to provide globetrotters grounded by the pandemic with a state-of-the-art VR travel experience that takes them to 1 of the 5 destinations.
Patrons will be able to enter the Metaverse through a Meta Quest device to immediately travel to either Tokyo’s Skytree, New York’s Fifth Avenue, or even time travel back 5-10 years ago of these locations.
2. Learn | Preface x Meta Spark AR Workshops
Metaverse is a collective experience in both Virtual Realities (VR) as well as Augmented Realities (AR). Preface will offer Metaverse Education through a series of Spark AR workshops for adolescents and adults to discover their inner creativity and build their own Facebook and Instagram AR filters! With the ‘boarding pass’ accompanied by the Metaverse Coffee, curious learners can register for the limited Preface Spark AR workshops and unlock a new skill in 90 mins!
