Vivacity curates and designs virtual experience for clients. The company designs 2D/3D photorealistic Metaverse landscape and soundscape with a subscription to unique virtual and hybrid experiences hosted on-demand. The company uses AI-powered photogrammetry where realistic texture, lighting, objects, shadows, and environments are captured for the Metaverse. Vivacity’s virtual experience is meticulous in details, providing clients with a better alternative to low-polygon spaces such as Sandbox or digital twins such as Matterport for showcases, previews, archives and exhibitions. Vivacity curators and project managers help clients and members easily host unique activities relevant to their interests, such as local artist collaboration, exclusive F&B collaboration, and commissioned artwork.
