The new collaboration enhances sustainability and connects the popular Metaverse with real-world travel and logistics.
Fremont, CA: Airlines would have to leverage cutting-edge technology smartly as the 'consumerization' wave transforms several service industries, including media, transportation, and retail. They'll have to experiment aggressively with diverse use cases to solve pressing passenger pain points, then apply what they learn to improve their strategy.
Next Earth, the unicorn and sustainability Metaverse, collaborated with Iomob, a pioneering blockchain business working on a decentralized protocol for the world's first-ever Mobility Marketplace Network and token. Limitless, the Metaverse integrator and go-to full-stack solution for known brands and startups will facilitate the integration of Iomob and Next Earth.
The strategic alliance, which includes Vueling Airlines, will work together to create tools and services that will allow "Next Earthians" to plan real-world travels, measure carbon emissions, and book "carbon positive" transportation via the Metaverse and Iomob's companion app.
"Next Earth and Iomob are simply the perfect match and use case," says Gabor Retfalvi, CEO of Next Earth. "Developing methods to visualize and experience sustainable travel within Next Earth fundamentally aligns with the natural evolution that underpins our environment and represents a wonderful next step for our company."
The collaboration of Next Earth, Iomob, and Vueling Airlines – the first airline to allow bookings through the Metaverse – brings together three distinct organizations with the potential to dramatically affect environmental concerns. Iomob is a "real world" transportation startup that lets customers plan A-to-B travels while also allowing them to book cabs, scooters, and other services. Vueling Airlines will make real-time flight bookings available in Next Earth using QR codes and an associated mobile app.
With its one-to-one replica of the Earth, Next Earth quickly becomes the epicenter of the Metaversal Industrial Revolution. Meanwhile, True Global Ventures, A100x, and Creas have announced investments in Iomob. In collaboration with Vueling Airlines, this new business makes intermodal mobility more accessible by using 7,000 taxi fleets, micro-mobility in 270+ cities, thousands of parking spaces, and 480+ public transportation feed.
