The California-based tech firm has launched a set of creator tools to enable seamless metaverse experiences without the need for high-end devices.
Building a metaverse has never been easier with MeetKai's dedicated tools
MeetKai has unveiled a suite of creator tools to expand its portfolio of metaverse and conversational AI technologies. Announced at the CES 2023 event on Wednesday, these new offerings by the company include MeetKai Reality, MeetKai Metaverse Editor, and MeetKai Cloud AI.
The California-based tech firm has over 50 million global users thanks to its conversational AI technology. According to the announcement, MeetKai's new creator tools will help enable more seamless metaverse experiences without requiring high-end devices.
To begin, MeetKai Reality is a new software platform that allows users to digitize physical spaces and create instant 3D replicas using nothing but a phone. Objects and spaces from the real world can be brought into the metaverse without the need for complex scanning equipment or countless hours of 3D modeling. All users need is a smartphone or any internet-connected device with a camera to record seconds of video to render their space.
On the other hand, MeetKai Metaverse Editor allows for easy virtual construction and space building without complicated tooling. It also allows anyone to build their metaverse content while working collaboratively in real time, making it easy to manage both personal and corporate metaverse projects.
The startup will also develop its own large language model (LLM) to challenge current industry leaders and offer specialized enterprise use cases. MeetKai's Cloud AI will add another level of immersion to virtual spaces by facilitating AI-human interactions to enable domain-specific, knowledge-driven Virtual Humans. So instead of just chitchatting with fixed knowledge from the past, MeetKai Virtual Humans can leverage any form of multimedia to instantly interact with end users at a fraction of the cost and 10x the speed, with real-time reasoning capabilities.
"As a company, we have always believed that AI-first products drive differentiation; the metaverse is no different," said James Kaplan, Co-Founder and CEO of MeetKai. “MeetKai's metaverse tools can be used a la carte as well. We want to unlock the same cost and time savings for everyone else looking to build in the metaverse. So, if a brand already has a metaverse platform but wants to integrate MeetKai's AI, they can do that. Likewise, if they have their own NPC tech, they could leverage MeetKai's space building and rendering capabilities."
"I'm extremely proud of our team's invention and innovation to be the first in the world to deploy such advanced tech with MeetKai Reality, MeetKai Cloud AI, and MeetKai Metaverse Editor," said Weili Dai, Co-Founder and Executive Chairwoman of MeetKai. "This makes our reality-based vision for the metaverse attainable and practical from the start."
