Nextech AR Launches Metaverse Builder App
Nextech AR Solutions has launched its metaverse app, ARitize Maps. This app is an all-in-one metaverse creation tool, and what the company claims is the first end-to-end metaverse mapping solution for consumers and brands alike. New features of the app included with the launch are augmented reality (AR) mapping, localization, and easy drag-and-drop of AR content, including navigation and the ability to view 3D models in a user’s created map. The full release follows the successful beta testing launch in February 2022.
Through the app, anyone can spatially map their location within minutes, and populate it with interactive 3D objects, AR navigation, audio, text, images, and more. Nextech provides a number of created and pre-loaded 3D objects, and in upcoming releases creators will be able to upload their own OBJ/GLB files and create their own 3D objects to populate their metaverse. Users can publish and share their metaverse for others to experience while in the location.
ARitize Maps app has an unlimited number of use cases for augmenting physical spaces in the metaverse—including art galleries, universities, trade shows and events, retail stores, shopping centers, office buildings, transport, public spaces, sports stadiums, museums, restaurants, rental properties, and homes.

ARitize Maps is the first component of the company’s planned Metaverse Experience Builder platform which combines the mobile application with a web based Creator Portal where experience designers can author various metaverse experiences ranging from wayfinding to exclusive branded activations. The offering will also contain an SDK which will allow brands to publish created experiences on their mobile app.
