They say of us, “That time we created the metaverse before Meta.”
CORRIERE DEL TICINO SWISS VIRTUAL EXPO – Cristina Giotto, Director and President of ated-ICT Ticino, has been interviewed by Corriere del Ticino about the innovative project Swiss Virtual Expo. To read the complete interview: “Interview «That time we created the metaverse before Meta»”.
So Ated beats Meta, wanting to exaggerate a little?
“I remember that when Facebook announced the name change and Zuckerberg described the metaverse, inside of ated we exchanged a couple of looks: but that’s what we did. With due comparisons, of course. The problem is that we were about to present the project to the Möbius Prize. We said, No, we can’t say the same things. With that in mind, a lot of people were working on this. In different ways but with the same purpose: to create worlds. Not surprisingly, many companies and many brands are, to date, experimenting with interactions with the virtual. We, in our small way, with Swiss Virtual Expo did something very nice. We started from a virtual exposure since we were in the middle of a pandemic, ensuring a different and more immersive visibility to companies. Now, however, we have expanded with other projects within the virtual, such as the faithful replica of the spaces of the Technical School of Gordola, so that students can participate remotely in classes in a ‘real’ or at least faithful to the original”.
