- Metaverse events at historical and ancient sites may soon shape up to be an alternate tourism future, offering a brand new experience.
- Metaverse tourism design was expedited by fallbacks caused due to Covid-19 pandemic, but sector might already be on this path.
- At present, prime metaverse platforms are clunky, tough to use, and waiting for further development in real estate, but organizations are focused on what it could be.
Non Fungible Chateaus, Castles and Villas
3.O Labs founder, Michelle Choi, initiated working with a team to release Non Fungible Castle, an NFT auction and exhibition at Lobkowicz Palace, an actual castle in Prague, held back in October 2021. The event witnessed NFTs displayed next to paintings that were 500 years old and had the objective to widen accessibility to cultural heritage.
With a wider objective to make Web3 available to all folks, 3.O Labs is already incubating an assemblage of Web3 projects ranging from NFTs to DAOs. Venture lab is already developing a project in a German castle within its metaverse vertical, which will be followed by an Indian Villa and probably a museum in Ghana.
History To Repeat Itself In Metaverse?
For better or worse, museums, tourism businesses, and education platforms may reimagine history in the metaverse. Jai Vilas Palace is owned by family of Priyadarshini Raje Scindia, an ancient Palace turned museum in Madhya Pradesh, India. She is thinking of an NFT channel to fund a metaverse experience.
Scindia told a news agency that NFTs must be embraced as an art, as each generation has its distinct art and interpretation of it. This is a latest platform and medium for hungry, surfacing Indian artists. She further said that there should be no obstacles to art creation.
DAOs for Chateaus, Castles and Villas Restorations
Schaumburg-Lippe family’s Prince Heinrich Donatus owned Bückeburg Castle, located in Northern Germany, was among the 16 reigning families in the nation until 1918. Later, Rhine’s British Army confiscated castle to utilize it as its HQ from 1948 to 1953.
It had formerly been under American control following World War 2’s end back in 1945 until German occupation zones were set up.
A bullet mark in outhouse jogs memory of castle’s history. Americans were initial to arrive at Bückeburg during the war, and the tank shell that infiltrated the dome is still visible in the museum of the castle. Family displays the shell, and has left hole in the ceiling as war’s memory.
Donatus is thinking the same as Scindia.
4D AR Events
Historical experiences and storytelling can also be augmented to make some impossible and surreal scenarios.
Donatus stated that, Metaverse is able to preserve as well as recreate the history. He further added that, he can organize a tennis match in Versailles Palace’s ballroom as a great tourist attraction.
As metaverse is becoming latest design for the tourism sector, they might also rewrite history in this approach.
