■ Become an avatar and explore virtual space. Learn about the Metaverse with a lecture by HIKKY.
In cooperation with HIKKY Co., Ltd., which operates the world’s largest metaverse event, “Virtual Market,” which attracts 1.2 million visitors, participants wore head-mounted displays and practiced exploring a virtual space. The students visited the booths of various companies exhibiting at the virtual market, held and touched objects in the virtual space, and interacted with their avatars. In addition, the content of the lectures covered the skills needed to be active as a streamer or VTuber, current trends in the Metaverse industry, market expansion, and the strengths of the virtual market.
