Polygon Helps to Launch The Tirst Metaverse Airport Worldwide
BIAL recently unveiled the initial stage of BLR Metaport, the first metaverse experience for an airport in partnership with AWS, Intel and Polygon. The BLR Metaport, a product of the Joint Innovation Center (JIC), will permit travelers, businesses and the public to enjoy a realistic 3D virtual tour of Bangalore Airport’s new Terminal 2 via VR headsets as well as web browsers. JIC was established by BIAL this year with AWS, Intel and Polygon to push ahead with cutting-edge digital advancements in aviation.
Airport users have the opportunity to experience a metaverse, which offers an array of engaging activities such as flight check-in, navigating through terminals, shopping and even connecting with other travelers. Currently, people can explore realistic environments like an art gallery and a meeting room. There is also potential to further this experience by introducing learning opportunities, gaming activities, entertainment options and skills development.
Built on AWS Cloud, the BLR Metaport utilizes Polygon’s blockchain technology to power a digital economy that enables users to trade virtual assets with ease. These digital commodities could be renowned artists in an art gallery, ‘certificates’ granted for completing various industry-related training courses, ‘collectibles’, ‘utility’ and ‘commemorative NFTs’. Later on, BLR Metaport will let people shop from their desired brands from all around the world.
‘Polygon is pioneering the blockchain revolution which will drive a digital economy everyone can access everywhere,’ asserted Polygon APAC head Arpit Sharma. ‘Metaport is one such illustration of how large enterprises can team up and develop to bring blockchain solutions to the public.’ Polygon has become the go-to destination for significant and small businesses to enter and prosper in the Web3 space.
The network’s impressive transaction speeds, minimal transaction costs and tiny environmental impact have attracted many decentralized applications, such as Aave, Uniswap and OpenSea, as well as major companies like Robinhood, Adobe and Stripe.
