After years of speculation, there are clear indications that Apple intends to enter the metaverse with its own AR/VR headsets and 3D video service. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurnman, the company has posted a video service job for augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) headsets. The ideal candidate will contribute to the creation of a 3D virtual reality video for the headsets.

It’s not the first time Apple has stated its intent to enter the AR/VR space. NextVR was purchased by the company two years ago. NextVR specialized at the time in providing high-quality 3D sports and music coverage in VR on Quest devices. However, this would change following the acquisition.

Apple has also listed another position that requires someone to assist in the development of a 3D mixed reality world. Experts believe that the company is working on its own iteration of entering the metaverse.

Nike expands its NFT Footprint by launching a Web3 Platform — .SWOOSH

Nike, the world’s largest sporting goods retailer, has unveiled a grand new Web3 ecosystem known as .SWOOSH, the platform, will serve as a one-stop shop for all NFT apparel and token-enabled services.

Nike intends to use the new.SWOOSH domain to provide an accessible platform for all of its Web3-connected products, including the distribution of Metaverse wearables, NFT-backed clothing, and token-gated experiences. All intended to delve deeper into the realm of Web3 & blockchain as we speed into the unknown territory of 2023.

Initially, a beta version of the Polygon-powered platform will be available via the swoosh.nike URL to gradually onboard users to the site through the distribution of access codes. Then, in December, they will host a series of educational events aimed at the non-crypto native mainstream, all before fully deploying the .SWOOSH ecosystem, which will launch in January 2023 with the first NFT drop.

SONY Patent Reveals Plans to Track In-Game Digital Assets using NFTs

According to a new patent filed last year, Sony intends to track in-game assets using NFTs. Sony kept the patent a secret until Eurogamer recently reported on it. “Tracking Unique In-Game Digital Assets Using Tokens on a Distributed Ledger” is the title.

“In traditional video games, no one digital asset is unique from other instances of the same in-game item,” Sony says. As a result, there’s no way to know, track, or authenticate the history of a specific instance of an in-game item.”

The patent states that players will be able to track the history of an in-game item as it moves from one person to another. The concept represents a critical use case for NFTs.
