Nvidia Makes Its Metaverse-Building Software Free for Individual Creators
At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Nvidia made Omniverse, its real-time 3D design collaboration and virtual world simulation platform, available free to individual creators and artists. The tech giant also rolled out new features and integrations for the product, which the company has dubbed the “metaverse for engineers.” Omniverse launched in beta early last year and a paid subscription version for enterprises followed in November. Nvidia says Omniverse has been downloaded by over 100,000 creators. During a presentation at Computex last summer, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang outlined his vision for the “many types of metaverses,” including video game versions and augmented reality-backed versions featuring non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
