Brazilian University Buys its Own Land in the Metaverse

The Metaverse will be useful to researchers in a variety of fields, such as research groups interested in 3D modeling, virtual and augmented reality, and being able to model real-world university space within the virtual platform in an immersive environment. In addition, researchers in the fields of education and psychology can evaluate classroom learning and behavior and the interactions performed.

The University of Sao Paulo (USP) has signed an agreement with Radio Caca (RACA) to operate various virtual properties within the United States of Mars (USM) metaverse and promote research therein.

RACA is a decentralized, autonomous organization that has partnered with world-leading universities to build a metaverse for students to learn and play. According to USP, the university team will explore applications and technical, economic, and legal aspects of the Metaverse.

USP professor Marcos A. Simplicio Jr. said the university has received its own NFT as part of the partnership. The token refers to rare earths in the USM metaverse, which is being built by USP in collaboration with other universities around the world.

“It is a great honor for us at RACA to have USP, the largest public university in Latin America, as part of the USM Metaverse. Together we will create new experiences that can unlock the full potential of Web3 for people. Our goal is to build an open metaverse that focuses on user freedom.” Jeff Watney, CEO of Radio Caca

Research in the Metaverse

The Metaverse will be useful to researchers in a variety of fields, such as research groups interested in 3D modeling, virtual and augmented reality, and being able to model real-world university space within the virtual platform in an immersive environment.

In addition, researchers in the fields of education and psychology can evaluate classroom learning and behavior and the interactions performed. Technology researchers can evaluate the effectiveness of various virtual and augmented reality devices for accessing the Metaverse.

The internal mechanisms of the Metaverse can also be studied by researchers in engineering, business, law and communications, and the arts to improve the platform as a whole.

“For any researcher interested in the metaverse, it is a very interesting opportunity to conduct their research on such a platform,” said USP Professor Marcos A. Simplicio Jr.
