The new Metaverse Standards Forum aims to establish open and shared standards for the technology of metaverso. An essential point if we really want to imagine a tomorrow where virtual reality is pervasive. There are so many companies like Adobe, Epic Games, Meta, Microsoft, Nvidia e Qualcomm. But also some big absentees, including Apple and Google. However, they would be working on virtual reality viewers and more.

Metaverse Standards Forum, companies together for the metaverse. But not all of them

A new organization to establish hardware and software standards, with the aim of making the metaverse a reality. Putting the major technology companies in the world (not just Silicon Valley) is certainly not an easy thing. But there are known names and they are many.

I’m there at the moment 35 companies from all over the world, and Adobe as far as Nvidia. And two companies like Metawho put the metaverse in his name, and Microsoftwhich has long been developing mixed reality headsets for companies.

E poi ci sono anche associazioni e consorzi. In totale: 0xSenses, Academy Software Foundation, Adobe, Alibaba, Autodesk, Avataar,, CalConnect, Cesium, Daly Realism, Disguise, Enosema Foundation, ‌Epic Games‌, Express Language Foundation, Huawei, IKEA, John Peddie Research, Khronos, Lamina1, Maxon, Meta, Microsoft, NVIDIA, OpenAR Cloud, Open Geospatial Consortium, Otoy, Perey Research and Consulting, Qualcomm Technologies, Ribose, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Spatial Web Foundation, Unity, VerseMaker, Wayfair, Web3D Consortium, World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) e XR Association.

Adobe explained to the vice president for AR Stefano Armor that “in our history we have contributed to the definition of fundamental standards for digital experiences, such as PDF or DNG “. This is about doing it for the metaverse.

And Meta a Epic Games with Unreal Enigne, everyone is eager to create a standard for putting metaverse technologies into a system. Almost. In fact, among the big absentees there are companies like Apple and Google, which would stand developing technologies for the metaverse. But more silent than others: for the moment they are still planning and will not expose themselves before their due.

However, joining the consortium costs nothing and the invitations remain open: it cannot be excluded that Cupertino and Mountain View will soon join the chorus as well. We will keep you informed.
