Speaking to Venturebeat video game reporter Dean Takahashi, Nvidia CEO Jenson Huang said he believes we are “on top” of the blockchain-based augmented reality metaverse.
In an interview published on Saturday, the graphics card boss described a future that is currently not too far from the NFT space: “The art you have is digital art. You own it with the help of NFT. You show this beautiful art, which is unique and all digital.”
Huang foresees a smooth transition between the physical world of our perishable goods and the virtual world of our digital assets. “You will wear our glasses or your phone. You can see it sitting there, perfectly lit, and yours. We’ll look at this expanse, if you will, as a metaverse to our physical world. “
Huang’s idea of ”overlaying the metaverse” already exists – in part. That March, NFT teen FEWOCiOUS auctioned a pair of NFT-like hand ink shoes, both an IRL and augmented reality pair, and raised $7 million in seven minutes.
