We had such an amazing and frenetic month! We started in March at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Union Avatars presented its futuristic Oval Booth. This installation allows users to create their realistic avatar in 15 seconds. The reception and feedback were overwhelming. We had the chance to talk to the brightest minds regarding the metaverse, virtual worlds, virtual identity and virtual reality. We learned a lot and it was a great networking experience.
As a way to thank the people who came by, we are creating a special NFT edition. So apart from getting their photorealistic avatar, they will get the very first Linking Realities’ NFT, and for free!
During the last 4 weeks, several newspapers, mainstream media and organizations highlighted our contribution to the virtual world and echoed our work in different articles. To name some of them:
- Blogthinking: Telefónica interviewed our CEO Cai Felip and talked at length to gather his insights about our current work, funding rounds and potential development in our roadmap.
- Catalan News: Dedicated an article and this great video showing our Oval booth in the Mobile World Congress.
- RTVE: In their article they quote our Marketing Manager and CMO Jordi Conejero, explaining how our software takes a 2D picture and transforms it into a 3D object that can be animated through AI.
- Fibracat: Check out the video linked where they show our avatar creation process and talk about our award as the best startup at 22@network bcn.
- El Español: Devoted an article talking about the Mobile World Congress and talks about our work and how we are disrupting the rules of the metaverse.
- Betevé: They portray us as the leading Spanish company providing virtual identity services on the metaverse and other virtual worlds.
