Introducing my new company, Lucidscape :
Our mission is to deliver the foundations of the metaverse, a vast network of connected virtual worlds where data is tangible and autonomous programs roam free.
We have a radically different vision for the web of the future. Instead of pages connected by links we envision a web of immersive worlds connected by portals. Connected but independent, each world is a sovereign simulation inhabited by users and program alike.
Our technology is a radical re-imagining of the fundamental technologies employed by games and virtual reality applications. Inspired by the same decentralized design philosophy of the web, we built a new kind of collaborative real-time computing platform to power a vast web of interconnected virtual worlds.
Exploratory work at my R&D lab a few months ago led to a breakthrough in computing for the kind of real-time simulations used by virtual reality and online games.
Our technology can be described as a distributed operating system for virtual reality which allows simulations running on different servers to interact and work together to create larger (and richer) simulated experiences. You can think of it as the operating system of “The Matrix” – either the 1999 movie or William Gibson’s original vision of it in Neuromancer.
With this technology we can create a new kind of web that is made of independent virtual worlds connected by ‘portals’ instead of pages connected by links. The creation of such “web of worlds” is inevitable and Lucidscape is my bid to make it happen sooner than later.
