    Niantic is one of the companies in the field of augmented reality (AR) technology, which is mainly known as Pokmon GO. The company recently announced the launch of a platform to build "real-world metavers" applications. Called Lightship, the platform is actually an augmented reality development kit that makes accessing the AR experience easier. Niantic hopes to establish its dream of a "real-world metavers" on the platform, which is free and accessible to all. According to John Hanke, CEO of Niantic, the Lightship platform is designed to connect the digital world with the real world.

    The Lightship platform has been under development for a long time, but as of Monday, November 8, 2021 (17 November 1400) All developers can access it. Developers can create new projects using the foundation of Niantic games - such as Ingress, Pokmon GO and Pikmin Bloom. Most parts of this software development kit are free, but there is a charge if you use one of the features of this kit - which allows multiple devices to simultaneously access the augmented reality experience they share. Of course, this service is also free for the first 6 months, and after that, if the APIs are used in an application with more than 50,000 monthly active users, the developer will be required to pay.

    Niantic is looking to launch a fund called the Niantic Investment Fund. The $ 20 million fund was set up to invest in companies that share a common vision with Niantic. Brands that have worked with Niantic and used its augmented reality development kit include Coachella, Historic Royal Palaces, Universal Pictures, the PGA of America, and Warner Bros.

    Recently, the renaming of Facebook to Meta became one of the most sensational news in the world of technology. The move demonstrates the cohesive plan of Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg to make the most of Metavars' potential. But it is interesting to know that John Hankey in one of the Niantic blog posts published in August, called the idea of Metavars a nightmare that can turn the world into a ruined city. Hankey's argument is that technology should not take people out of the real world. Unlike Virtual Reality Metamorphosis - which Mark Zuckerberg intends to achieve with the expansion of virtual reality headsets - Hankey's ultimate goal is to bring people together in person by developing augmented reality applications.

    Current Niantic games are based on activity outside the home and meeting new people. Prior to the spread of the Corona virus (which forced Niantic to make remote gaming settings), some parts of Pokmon GO could only be played when enough people started playing together, simultaneously. "At Nantes, we believe that humans are happiest when the virtual world draws them into the physical world," says John Hankey. According to him, unlike the metavers portrayed for us in science-fiction films, the real world metavers seeks to enhance our experience of the world by using technology; The same experience that has been the result of thousands of years of human life.
