Virtual reality (VR) is a market that is growing a lot right now, just like the blockchain market, which means that there are many businesses uniting these two technologies to create an interesting new product. Today we will review Staramba, a company from Berlin, Germany.
Staramba describes itself as the world’s most advanced VR world and lifelike scan company and its product will allow you to connect and meet lifelike 3D avatars of your favorite superstars, idols and even to meet up with your friends or even strangers using the network.
Staramba Main Features
You will be able to interact with people in this new world and to use its market to buy, sell and rent parts and transact with people. The main goal of the company is the creation of a virtual world in which you have all the best parts of the real world and much more.
By accessing Staramba, you will have the ability to join experiences created from top celebrities, superstar athletes and live in a world with avatars created with cutting edge 3D technology. You will be able to create assets to be used in this virtual world and rent or sell them later or, in case you do not want to create anything, you can even buy the masterworks of other people.
The basic function of this new ecosystem is to create a space in which people will be able to connect with their idols (or fans) and to other people that they like. You will be able to express yourself in the network, connect with your best friends and share your moments with fully photorealistic VR.
The company will let you connect with real people and avatars of famous people in what could be considered to be a hyperreal reality because the avatars of the people will be made with certified scans of real people.
Many official brands will be releasing exclusive content for the network, so you will have plenty of different options to choose from whenever you decide to use Staramba. Staramba will have the world’s largest 3D avatar database, which already consists of more than 7000 models of famous people and will only increase with time.
The software will be compatible with Vive, Oculus and HDK2.
