Transform Images into 3D Worlds With Hiber’s Latest AI

Google Next Reveal Shows Results of Collaboration Between Hiber and Google Cloud to Enable 3D World Creation with Image Prompts with SkyScape AI.

GOTHENBURG, Sweden – April 11, 2024 – Today at Google Cloud Next ‘24 in Las Vegas, Hiber unveils SkyScape AI, a tool designed to turn static images into immersive 3D skyboxes, marking a new step in 3D world creation.

SkyScape AI, which is currently in alpha, has been developed in partnership with Google Cloud and is powered by Gemini models through Vertex AI. It automatically turns any image into an interactive 3D world which can then be explored and built upon, while instantly connecting to a network of almost 6 million worlds.

“Hiber’s vision is to provide escapism through creative possibilities along with the possibility to visit any place, imaginary or real. With this we are one step closer to that vision and dare I say one step closer to the holodeck.” said Mattias Johansson, Co-founder and CIO at Hiber.

Having released the World Creator AI earlier this year, Hiber continues to deliver on its AI 

feature roadmap, all of which will be housed within the Hiber3D Co-Pilot™ tool-kit. The step by step release of this AI tool-kit bolsters Hiber’s mission to democratize 3D world creation for the masses. To date the company has tackled this challenge with its creator tools – the Hiber3D Development Kit (HDK), a coding toolkit for the millions of React developers and professionals around the world, and a no-code tool for consumers, which has resulted in almost 6 million 3D worlds created on the UGC hub HiberWorld. Supporting these creator tools is the lightweight Hiber3D game engine which has the power to target any device with a web browser, with an in-built set of services for creators.

For the past few months users have been able to access the World Creator AI in alpha on the HiberWorld platform. The tool was released to all users in January, following a period in pre-alpha when over 10,000 early access members signed up for the opportunity to test and give feedback on the technology. The World Creator AI now contributes to 5% of all published worlds on HiberWorld, and over 70 thousand prompts have been entered. 


Now, with the release of SkyScape AI, Hiber is offering everyone the opportunity to test its static image to skybox creator while in alpha. 

“We are inviting our community to guide our innovation. With SkyScape, we’re not just iterating on technology; we’re co-creating the future of digital environments and we believe that early feedback will redefine what’s possible,” said Mattias Johansson, Co-founder and CIO at Hiber.Try SkyScape AI today, and join a community that is shaping the future of 3D world creation.

Hiber Unveils Generative AI at Google Next

Google Next Reveal Shows Results of Collaboration Between Hiber, Datatonic and Google Cloud to Enable 3D World Creation Through Natural Language Prompts

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Sep 8, 2023 – Hiber AB, the company behind the Hiber3D tech stack, have announced the introduction of generative AI to their creation tools. Hiber’s mission is to lower the barriers to participation in the 3D web. To date the company has tackled this challenge with its creator tools – the Hiber3D Development Kit, a coding toolkit for the millions of React developers and professionals around the world, and a no-code tool for consumers, which has resulted in more than 5 million 3D worlds created on the UGC hub HiberWorld.

Supporting these creator tools is the cutting-edge, lightweight Hiber3D engine which has the power to target any device with a web browser with an in-built set of services to creators.

“Along with our Hiber3D engine, we have a set of services that support creators, including multiplayer, chat, identity, payment rails, and commerce connections. And now we are going further. By uniting generative AI with these services, we’re set to evolve our offering into a living creation platform,” said Michael Yngfors, CEO of Hiber AB.

Last week at Google Cloud Next ‘23 in San Francisco, Hiber unveiled the outcome of a collaboration with Datatonic and Google Cloud. Hiber has integrated Datatonic and Google Cloud’s generative AI solutions with Hiber3D, enabling creators to use natural language to enhance the experience of crafting 3D worlds.

“While we have seen a very high percentage of creators thanks to the accessibility of our current creator tools, one of the challenges users have faced over the years is knowing where to begin when facing a blank canvas. Our hypothesis was that if users could express what they want to create using natural language, it would help them overcome this hurdle and unleash their creative power. We can’t wait to see what our users will create when we start rolling this out in the coming months.”

The technical process, enabled by Google Cloud technologies and AI algorithms, leverages the massive amount of 3D world creation data Hiber has on its platform, ensuring that the Hiber team and partner, Datatonic, can utilize Google Cloud Run and PaLM large language models to deliver a unique solution to users looking to utilize language to generate 3D worlds.

“Collaborating with Hiber on this journey has been an amazing experience so far. Enabling end users to generate 3D worlds and assets using large language models is one of the most innovative and exciting use cases that generative AI can be applied to, and working with Hiber and Google Cloud made it happen.” Antonio Nieto García, Senior Data Scientist , Datatonic.

“When this solution is rolled out to production and goes live in the coming months, users will be able to exploit PaLM text and embedding capabilities beyond imaginable limits.” Alvaro Azabal, Generative AI Technical Lead, Datatonic.

“By collaborating with Hiber and Datatonic, we are able to unlock even more capabilities of real-time generative AI so that players can experience worlds the way they want and imagine them to be,” said Jack Buser, Director, Google Cloud, Games.

The integration with generative AI is set to continue with Hiber’s long term roadmap featuring a co-pilot solution which would see users offered the support of an AI assistant that can not only create on prompt but offer live and informed suggestions to facilitate the creation process. 

Apart from its growing community of creators, Hiber3D has caught the attention of brands looking to expand their virtual presence and invest in their innovation roadmap. In July of this year, luxury fashion label Tommy Hilfiger, chose Hiber3D to create Tommy Parallel – an interoperable virtual universe for its community. The Tommy Parallel experience which is hosted on HiberWorld, features a phygital fashion collection designed by The Fabricant and invites users to explore the space with Ready Player Me avatars styled in Tommy Hilfiger wearables. Over the course of the first month of the campaign, visitors to the experience on HiberWorld spawned over 1.2 million Tommy Parallel digital wearables when entering the space.

Gothenburg Island Festival Launches in HiberWorld

This week, the Gothenburg Island Festival has launched in HiberWorld, inviting visitors from around the world to take part in Gothenburg’s Jubilee celebrations.

This initiative is part of Gothenburg’s 400-year celebration and Kulturkalaset (the city’s annual, sustainable, sprawling summer festival). It is a result of Goteborg & Co’s vision to create an event that acknowledges the city’s rich history, vibrant present, and promising future.

Goteborg & Co joined forces with creative agency KOKOKAKA and Hiber to bring this vision to life. Drawing inspiration from Gothenburg’s unique Ringön district, KOKOKAKA worked with the Hiber3D tech stack to craft a digital counterpart to Ö-Festen – Ringön’s annual block party, now in its 6th year. 

At Ringön, an intriguing blend of old industries and emerging businesses creates a unique buzz – think lively breweries, thrift stores, and bustling studios. The team at KOKOKAKA used the Hiber3D Development Kit to create a network of interconnected 3D worlds, each representing a counterpart at Ringön… but with a twist, of course. The result is a multifaceted feast for the senses! KOKOKAKA succeeded in creating an equally exciting virtual experience filled with oddities and surprises, allowing visitors from all over the globe to get a taste of Gothenburg’s unique culture.

“Hiber3D is an amazing framework for building 3D websites. Finally there is an easy way to build immersive experiences on the web. By combining 3D with video, music and gamification you can communicate in a much richer way than on a flat web page.” – Jimmy Herdberg, KOKOKAKA Creative Studio

The Gothenburg Island Festival is now live in HiberWorld until September 3rd, 2023. Discover art exhibitions, interviews, poetry, live-streamed performances from Ö-Festen, competitions, and mini-games.

HiberWorld Hits 5 Million World Milestone

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Aug 23, 2023 – Hiber AB, the company behind the Hiber3D tech stack, today announced that they have surpassed the 5 million world milestone on their creator hub, HiberWorld.

Having passed 1 million worlds in May 2021, this new milestone marks massive growth over the past two years in terms of monthly users and the number of people using HiberWorld’s no-code creator tool to craft a wide array of virtual worlds, ranging from 3D hangouts, challenges, interactive festivals, roller coasters, art showcases, and more. All of these worlds can be embedded directly onto any website outside of the HiberWorld platform to leverage a site’s audience and traffic while simultaneously connecting to HiberWorld’s global online community.

This 5 million world milestone signals that Hiber is progressing in its mission to accelerate the adoption of the 3D web by lowering the barriers to participation. 

Over the past few months, the company has begun rolling out its Hiber3D Development Kit, an additional creation tool, catering to the millions of coders and React Developers worldwide and further broadening the opportunities for anyone to engage with 3D world creation on the web.

The Hiber3D tech stack has caught the attention of brands looking to expand their virtual presence and invest in their innovation roadmap. In July of this year, the luxury fashion label Tommy Hilfiger chose Hiber3D to create Tommy Parallel – an interoperable virtual universe for its community. The experience was hosted on HiberWorld and was also embedded directly on the Tommy Parallel website. The Tommy Parallel world featured a phygital fashion collection designed by The Fabricant and invited users to explore the space with Ready Player Me avatars styled in Tommy Hilfiger wearables. Over the course of the first month, visitors to the experience on HiberWorld spawned over 1.2 million Tommy Parallel digital wearables when entering the space.

Fashion brands are not the only ones extending their marketing to the virtual space using Hiber3D. Between 2022 and 2023, Hiber rolled out collaborations with the music NFT platform anotherblock, lifestyle brand iamrunbox, rock group Smash Into Pieces, and the influencer agency DIA, bringing immersive experiences to a wide range of digital communities. Hiber continues to collaborate closely with the interoperable avatar platform Ready Player Me, allowing all communities to move between experiences with personalized digital identities.

“The acceleration in world creation on HiberWorld is a direct result of the continued efforts of the team at Hiber to improve and innovate with the Hiber3D creator tools and components,” said Michael Yngfors, Co-Founder and CEO of Hiber AB. “The 5 million world milestone is also a testament to our highly engaged and creative community who take the tools we roll out, and use them to push the boundaries of their imaginations in 3D. We are gearing up to deliver new advancements in 2023 and are already looking towards our next milestone.”

This month, Hiber is set to unveil an integration with generative AI in collaboration with Datatonic and Google Cloud at Google Next on August 31st. This project aims to further open access to 3D creation possibilities for the online community, further bolstering Hiber’s long standing mission.

Virtual worlds created with Hiber3D can be embedded directly onto any website, and can simultaneously connect to nearly 5 million worlds on the HiberWorld platform, while the lightweight Hiber3D engine can target all devices without compromising on performance or quality.

Smash Into Pieces, the Swedish rock group renowned for their fusion of futuristic aesthetics and apocalyptic themes, as well as their cinematic mini-series “ARCADIA WORLD,” consistently push the boundaries to captivate their global fan base. Now, in collaboration with Hiber, Smash Into Pieces invite their dedicated ‘SMASH HEADS’ fan-base to experience this first-of-its-kind 3D music world.

With the power of Hiber3D, fans of Smash Into Pieces will be transported into Arcadia , an immersive world designed to reflect the band’s dynamic style and aesthetic. Arcadia serves as an interactive hub where fans can engage with the band, their music, artistry, and merchandise as well as curated gamified experiences that can be used to unlock exclusive access or items. For this release, eagle eyed fans of Smash Into Pieces will be able to access a teaser of an upcoming single located somewhere in Arcadia.

“How we might connect with each other in the future has been a huge theme in our band, and this project with Hiber lets us bring the Arcadia World concept to life,” said Chris Adam, the lead singer of Smash Into Pieces. “This is a new way to push ourselves creatively and engage our amazing fans, and we’re pumped to see everyone in Arcadia soon!” 

In addition to the 3D music world, this collaboration will introduce “verch” – or virtual merch, a concept that establishes an entirely new revenue stream for artists. Verch allows fans to enhance their digital identities by owning unique and collectible digital items associated with their favorite artists, redefining the fan experience and taking brand affinity into the 3D web. By pioneering this integration of music and commerce within the 3D web, Hiber3D not only provides an opportunity to transform fan engagement, but also creates a new platform for brand recognition and revenue generation. Visitors to Arcadia will be able to purchase Smash Into Pieces verch for their avatars which they can then use in over 8000+ platforms and apps as they move their identity through the interoperable 3D web.

“This collaboration with Smash Into Pieces signifies a major milestone for music artists. By harnessing the power of Hiber3D, musicians can forge direct connections with their audience and unlock new avenues for engagement and monetization,” said Michael Yngfors, CEO of Hiber. “At the same time, this collaboration revolutionizes the traditional music landscape by allowing fans to access their favorite musicians in a new way. It’s a paradigm shift that empowers artists to take control of their own brand and offers fans an unparalleled level of intimacy and interaction.”

By integrating the band’s artistic vision with Hiber’s cutting-edge technology, this collaboration marks a monumental milestone as the first-ever implementation of a 3D immersive music showroom which has the potential to redefine the music industry’s digital landscape, allowing fans and artists to transcend traditional experiences and explore uncharted territories of entertainment.

About Smash Into Pieces:

The Swedish cinematic rock outfit SMASH INTO PIECES, have since the release of their third album ‘Rise And Shine’, grown to become a well known international brand within the rock community. Being part of the force surrounding the group since the beginning, their mystical leader and apocalyptic looking drummer APOC is probably the most eye-catching member of the group.

Earlier this year the group participated in the Swedish version of Eurovision, and won their sub-competition and went straight to the finals where they ended up placing third! With ‘Six Feet Under’ selling platinum in Sweden in less than 12 weeks and national radio picking up on the track, SMASH announced they are going to continue the story of ARCADIA. In April of 2023, they released the first episode ‘The Tide’. Now the time has come for the group to follow up the recent success with the second episode of the third ARCADIA season.. ‘FLOW’! 

Ready Player Me’s New Monetization Tools Help Developers Grow Revenue Through In-App Purchases

Initial Launch To Be Accessible For Those With Alpha Access; Starting Today, Developers Can Register Interest For Public Launch On Ready Player Me’s Website 

First Premium Avatar Collection, The Outer Kingdoms, Is Now Available For Sale Directly on HiberWorld, Wink, and Omlet Arcade

New York, NY (June 15, 2023) – Ready Player Me, the world’s leading avatar platform, today released alpha access to a new suite of monetization tools and premium avatar collections. These innovations let app creators tap into the $100+ billion dollar digital goods economy by selling avatar skins, clothing, and items directly in their apps. Alpha partners utilizing the tools include Hiber, Wink, and Omlet Arcade; other Ready Player Me developers can apply for beta access to the tools here.

“Partnering with Ready Player Me enables us to move our monetization strategy forward by delivering embeddable 3D commerce experiences to brands, artists and creators,” said Michael Yngfors, Co-Founder & CEO of Hiber. “We’ve seamlessly worked with their new tools and APIs to launch an in-world storefront in HiberWorld for The Outer Kingdoms collection. Now, any brand or artist can use HiberWorld to easily create their own 3D commerce experience for avatar outfits and reach millions of users.”

As part of this alpha launch with selected partners, Ready Player Me is opening access to its new Asset Manager, Transaction API, and their first sellable avatar collections.

  • The Asset Manager let’s developers create, upload, and publish outfits for sale directly in their app. Additionally published assets will soon be available for sale throughout the entire Ready Player Me Network, giving developers the ability to sell cross-game.
  • The Transactions API powers transactions and revenue sharing, giving developers the ability to build storefronts — either through app interfaces or directly in virtual stores that can be visited in-world.
  • The first avatar collection, The Outer Kingdoms, is available for sale directly through partner storefronts. The launch partners include HiberWorld, Wink, and Omlet Arcade. Additional avatar collections will be launched on an ongoing basis.

The in-app purchase market in 2022 was a staggering $141.75B, and expected to compound yearly. With much of this spend going to avatars, developers increasingly need better ways to monetize through skin, clothing, and item sales. These new features are built API-first, with native integration into game engines such as Unity or Unreal, allowing broad access and saving development time and resources.  Through Ready Player Me’s interoperable network, assets will achieve peak cross-game potential through their utility in not one, but over thousands of different apps and games.

“Fortnite, Call of Duty, and Roblox have proved the game economy of the future is powered by avatar monetization,” said Timmu Toke, Co-Founder & CEO of Ready Player Me. “Until now, unless you were a AAA studio, you couldn’t take advantage of the avatar economy. Now, we’ve made it possible for every developer, regardless of size, to create and sell avatar skins and items in-game, and across thousands of connected experiences that integrate with our platform.”

The alpha launch is available to select Ready Player Me developers. To apply for future  beta access, developers need to apply using this form [FORM LINK]. Developers who have not yet signed up with Ready Player Me can do so at readyplayer.me/developers.

Faraway and Hiber Showcase the Power of Interoperability as Hiber3D Creators Can Now Take Their User-Generated Maps into Different Game Worlds

Hiber3D Creators will be able to export and showcase their maps in Mini Royale: Nations as well as a variety of other metaverse experiences through this collaboration with Faraway

MIAMI & GOTHENBURG – Faraway, developers of Mini Royale: Nations and upcoming strategy game Serum City, announced a partnership with Hiber, creators of 3D web tech Hiber3D and popular virtual experience platform HiberWorld, that will let creators build their own worlds and experiences to be used in the Faraway Web3 gaming ecosystem and beyond. 

To start, this partnership will allow Hiber3D creators to export their maps and environments to be instantly playable as game maps inside of Mini Royale: Nations, a popular Web3 first person shooter launched in December 2021. Once this integration is live it will allow Faraway and HiberWorld to share the same maps and worlds, with the eventual goal of scaling to many more games and experiences. With data available on the blockchain, other developers will be able to easily access and tap into the same creator ecosystem, and creators will have the potential to monetize their content in many more interoperable experiences.

Faraway has spent the last year focusing on interoperability as a defining feature of Web3 games and on user-generated content (UGC) as a source of evergreen content for these games. Following a recent partnership with avatar creation platform Ready Player Me to allow for two-way interoperability between both companies’ in-game avatars, Faraway also launched a UGC platform where players can create and sell their own interoperable avatars to be used within thousands of virtual worlds. Faraway now expands support for UGC beyond avatars through custom maps that can be built using Hiber3D’s no-code or code creation tools and seamlessly imported into Faraway games in addition to HiberWorld.com.

HiberWorld users have created millions of interactive experiences ranging from platformers and virtual hangout spaces, to 3D recreations of famous landmarks. Hiber has also partnered with Ready Player Me already enabling interoperable avatars in these worlds, including avatars created by the Mini Royale: Nations UGC community. This partnership gives Hiber’s creator community more utility in the worlds they create in an ever-expanding number of applications outside the core of HiberWorld. It will also include new Web3 monetization systems to help creators monetize their worlds as their experiences are leveraged by more and more game studios and players.

Co-founders Michael Yngfors, ex-PlayStation, and Mattias Johansson, ex-DigitasLBi, launched Hiber in 2017 to accelerate the adoption of the 3D web by enabling brands, artists, musicians, influencers and creators to easily build, manage and monetize their own virtual world presence. With close to 5 million user-generated 3D worlds built, HiberWorld has become a hub for creativity by empowering users with seamless tools for world-building. At the same time, the recent launch of Hiber3D enables over 17 million web developers worldwide to easily create interconnected virtual worlds and publish them anywhere.

“This partnership with Faraway showcases the power and potential of interoperability,” said Michael Yngfors, CEO of Hiber. “Through this collaboration, Hiber3D creators can now expand their reach into the Faraway ecosystem and unlock new possibilities for their content, opening up new paths for gameplay in ways creators control.”

Faraway launched Mini Royale: Nations in 2021 as the first live multiplayer game to incorporate the Solana blockchain. Founders Alex Paley and Dennis Zdonov, former executives at Glu Mobile and Scopely, have expanded the company’s focus beyond its own game development to creating an ecosystem of games and products powered by Web3, interoperability, and user-generated content (and providing developer and creator tools for other game studios to do the same through the Faraway Developer Platform).

“The ability for player-owned assets to exist and have utility outside of their original game experience opens the doors for a totally new type of game design and economy. We’re incredibly excited to work with Hiber to integrate thousands of user-created maps and experiences made completely externally from our own team,” said Faraway co-founder, Alex Paley.

Hiber3D provides creators with access to an extensive 3D asset library and a set of out-of-the-box services, including multiplayer, character controls, chat, customizable avatars from Ready Player Me, Web3 rails, payment rails, and commerce connections, giving them what they need to easily build, manage, and monetize their own virtual presence on the 3D web. 

Leveraging Hiber3D’s embed feature, creators can build on their most valuable virtual real estate, their website, and consumers can interact with brands through embedded 3D experiences without leaving the sites they’re familiar with. Creators can simultaneously connect their worlds to the HiberWorld platform to leverage the growing community, where Hiber3D has enabled the creation of almost 5 million virtual experiences through its no-code creation tool.

Hiber3D has already been put to effective use by its partners, including anotherblock and iamrunbox, who created captivating brand experiences that were directly integrated into their websites. 

”Our collaboration with Hiber confirmed the power of embracing immersive experiences to engage with our customers and bring our brand to life,” said Ida Malm of iamrunbox. “With seamless integration into our website during a major campaign, the process was remarkably straightforward. Moreover, linking this experience to HiberWorld opened up a whole new audience for us, expanding our reach.”

Hiber is planning to announce several major brand partnerships in the coming months, with a strong emphasis on commerce and web3 as key areas of focus for its continued growth and development.

“With Hiber3D, we’re giving creators of all skill levels the tools they need to build, manage, and monetize their own virtual presence on the emerging 3D web,” said Michael Yngfors, CEO of Hiber. “With open access to the full suite of browser-based technology, we believe Hiber3D is set to accelerate the adoption of the 3D web and usher in a new era of immersive 3D experiences.”

Hiber3D is now available to developers and professionals looking to participate in the 3D web through the HDK

Metaverse Platform Hiber Releases NFT Gallery

Gothenburg, Sweden – June 21, 2022 – Hiber, a platform transforming any website into an interconnected metaverse presence, today announced the release of its NFT Gallery, a tool which allows anyone to view their NFT collections in the metaverse using any device with a web browser. The new feature will provide the opportunity for owners to see any NFTs in their possession in one place.

The new gallery enables users to enter any Ethereum wallet address containing NFTs to nftgallery.mv, where Hiber’s technology will procedurally generate a 3D art gallery in the metaverse within a matter of seconds. Users​ can then explore the gallery in an avatar form, while accessing their NFTs to learn more about them, which can also be viewed on Opensea. The custom gallery URL can subsequently be shared and used by anyone and shared  across social media.


To demonstrate the power of this tool, Hiber has identified more than 70 wallet addresses belonging to A-List celebrities, including those owned by Kevin Hart, Justin Bieber, DJ Khaled, Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Post Malone, Paris Hilton, Mike Tyson, and Snoop Dogg, and has generated galleries of some of the most sought after NFT collections in the world. For anyone who has ever wanted to peruse NFT collections belonging to massive Hollywood stars, the chance is now here. The celebrity galleries can be accessed here.


Michael Yngfors, CEO and Co-Founder of Hiber shared his insights on the NFT Gallery, commenting: “We take great pride in creating a means whereby users can fully tap into NFT wallets in a way that hasn’t been done before.” He further added, “With the celebrity addresses that we have added to the gallery, fans now have the opportunity to be part of the experience of being able to see the NFTs that their idols own.”

The Gallery is not in any way endorsed in any way by any of the celebrities that own the wallets, but simply serves to illustrate the open nature of both Web3 and blockchain technology, where anyone can tour a celebrity’s gallery for free.

Metaverse platform HiberWorld set for major upgrade with new cross-platform 3D engine and Web3 tech 

Hiber’s UGC Metaverse Platform Offers Creators No Code Co-Creation, Improved Graphics and Frictionless Access via Mobile Devices and Web Browsers


February 3, 2022 – Hiber announced that its Metaverse platform HiberWorld is about to undergo a major upgrade with the rollout of a proprietary, lightweight yet powerful, next generation 3D engine as well as use of Web3 technology to give creators and their communities new opportunities.

The platform’s unique 3D engine offers significantly improved graphics and performance, real time co-creation where users can collaborate and play together, and a whole new experience that makes no-code creation fun and accessible to the masses via browsers as well as Apps. Through the use of Web3 technology the platform will, amongst other things, support digital ownership and enable interoperability, where holders of NFTs from partners can unlock and use their assets on HiberWorld.

Apple iPhone users in New Zealand, Australia, and The Philippines are the first to be able to try the new platform which is downloadable in these initial rollout countries via the App Store.

Over the coming weeks, the company plans to rollout the new experience on the web at HiberWorld.com replacing the initial version that has been in testing for around two years.  To date, the community has made more than two million virtual worlds, which already makes HiberWorld one of the largest Metaverse platforms today.

Additional device platforms are scheduled to roll out over the coming months as the company delivers on its goals of bringing creation and the Metaverse to everyone through an open, frictionless no-code experience.

“We believe the Metaverse, just like the Internet, inherently needs to be open, accessible and free for everyone to participate in and express their creativity without any barriers,” said Michael Yngfors, CEO of Hiber AB. “That’s why we have built a web and mobile first, no-code platform that removes all the friction and utilizes Web3 technology to enable interoperability and support digital ownership. We believe the HiberWorld platform has the potential to power hundreds of millions of interconnected virtual worlds, opening the Metaverse to the masses.”

“HiberWorld gives users a new medium with which to create 3D experiences and instantly publish and share them, each becoming a distinct and unique virtual world and presence in the Metaverse,” said Johan Peitz, Chief Product Officer of Hiber AB. ‘’As we roll out the platform over the coming months, we will be announcing a number of partners that will extend both the utility of the platform, and show how we are embracing interoperability and Web3.”
