    Saudi Arabia’s Metaverse: Explore History in VR

    Calling all history buffs and tech enthusiasts! Step back in time and explore the rich heritage of Saudi Arabia in the Kingdom’s groundbreaking Cultural Universe metaverse.

    Unveiled on the nation’s founding day, this immersive experience transports you on a journey through centuries, starting from 1727. Built on secure blockchain technology and powered by cutting-edge AI, the metaverse offers a unique blend of history and innovation.

    Navigate the virtual world like a first-person shooter, encountering historical landmarks and events come alive. Engaging voiceovers (currently available in Arabic) guide you through each era, while interactive elements and mini-games keep you engaged.

    Delve deeper into various aspects of Saudi culture: explore music, art, history, traditions, and even sample virtual culinary delights. Accessibility is key: the metaverse is free to access on various devices, including mobiles, VR headsets, and websites.

    This initiative goes beyond entertainment: the Saudi government views the metaverse as a “transformative moment” in cultural preservation and engagement. It reflects the nation’s commitment to sharing its rich heritage with the world, fostering inclusivity through cross-platform compatibility.

    The Middle East is embracing the metaverse not just for entertainment, but also as a strategic economic tool. As Samuel Huber, CEO of LandVault (a metaverse firm working with Middle Eastern governments), points out, the metaverse offers the potential to “digitalize infrastructure and create new economic opportunities.”

    Saudi Arabia’s Cultural Universe is a prime example of how the metaverse can be leveraged to preserve cultural heritage, educate future generations, and contribute to economic development. This is just the beginning of an exciting journey into the future, where history and technology collide to create a truly immersive and impactful experience.
