“Flying Into The Metaverse Through Books & Culture”, is a project that wants to open a cultural channel in the Metaverse, with the aim of presenting and validating studies and research carried out in the last ten years in the XR sector.
The intent of the project is also to use innovative contents, involving a new target of users, lovers of reading (digital and otherwise), who, through texts written by professionals in the sector, can approach the Metaverse or give life to interesting debates.
In many cases you can see self-published books, degree theses, very in-depth research, perhaps self-published on Amazon and very often they are books not yet published by publishing houses, which have great earning possibilities, and which contain innovative topics that tell the story of the evolution of technology in recent years or of those protagonists not too well known outside the sector communities.
With this project we want to highlight precisely those who have collected summaries and documentation, so that the libraries of the world can update themselves with scientifically interesting contents.
BOOKS, CULTURE AND METAVERSE
It seems like a paradox. Trying to combine the latest technological trend with the static nature of a library’s archiving. But even as we live more and more in the digital world, we feel the need to create a bridge between the real and virtual world. We take enormous steps towards the future, but in the evening we go to sleep in a physical bed.
The focus of the coming months, perhaps years, will be to unite the real with the virtual, continually creating physical and digital connections that allow us to keep both dimensions on the same level.
THE IDEA AND AWE COLLABORATION
“Flying Into The Metaverse Through Books & Culture” is a project that was born from an idea of Cecilia Lascialfari, Co-Founder of ARea6DoF, in collaboration with Ori Inbar and all community of AWE and aims to highlight the cultural trend already present in the Metaverse, through studies and research carried out by professionals in the XR field who have been working on the development of new technologies and have seen the evolution of the technology sector from when Virtual Reality was still something unknown, to get to the birth of the Metaverse and the approach of these technologies of the highest level, towards the mainstream.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROJECT

THE INTEREST OF PUBLISHING HOUSES
The interviews that we will carry out will be a springboard available to the network and to the publishing houses that will be able to draw on the episodes of this project to do scouting, in search of texts by authors to be able to publish with their brand, validating the content through the guarantee of a publishing house.
We realize that the book is static and the Metaverse is in constant motion, but now there is a part of the history of the XR world, which must be written in the books precisely because it is consolidated and outdated.
FLYING INTO THE METAVERSE THROUGH BOOKS & CULTURE: THE SERIES
“Flying Into The Metaverse Through Books & Culture” will start with its first season, shortly before AWE USA 2022 and will be divided into groups of five episodes at a time. During each episode an exponent of the XR sector will be interviewed.
In the coming weeks, you will find the first five episodes with interviews by:
Episode 1: Bob Cooney – World’s Leading Location-based VR Expert, 8X Entrepreneur, Crazily-Brilliant Moderator, Mentor, Go to market Strategist, Global Keynote Speaker and Author…
Episode 2: Laurent Chrétien – General Manager Laval Virtual
Episode 3: Benjamin De Wit – Festival Director & Founder VRDays Europe and Immersive Tech Weeks – 28th November / 2nd December 2022, Actor, Showman
Episode 4: Judith Guez – Phd VR/MR Artist-Research | Founder & Director ART&VR Festival Recto VRso – Laval Virtual
Episode 5: Michael Barngrover – Building & Researching Immersive World for Learning & Collaboration Virtual Event Coordinator XR Crowd Founder/Lead Developer Raptor Dance Studios
WHERE TO SEE THE EPISODES OF THE SERIES (THE INTERVIEWS)
Links to the interviews will be shared online, via the AWE blog, the ARea6Dof.com website, and in the AWE newsletters “The Weekly Spatial“. You can see the interviews also on the AWE Youtube Channels and on my Youtube Channel.
YOU AS A “NUMBER ONE”!
Each of us aims to be the best in their sector, with commitment and passion. With the “Flying Into The Metaverse Through Books & Culture” project, we want our speakers to become the “Number One” worldwide, at least for the duration of the interview we will be doing! The rest will be the public of the network to do so.
WE NEED YOU LIKE A OFFICIAL SPONSOR!
This is a project that was born in recent weeks and needs a sponsor who can help finance the development of all the work that we are going to carry out. We are looking for investors, companies, airlines or someone who believes in culture and in the very important role it continues to have in the Metaverse as well.
Without good content, without solid studies, solid foundations, nothing makes sense. And this project goes in search of the best contents of the Metaverse.
If you want to become the official sponsor of this project, contact me and we will take you flying with us on the wings of “Flying Into The Metaverse Through Books & Culture”!
See you soon!
This project is realized by Cecilia Lascialfari, Co-Founder of ARea6DoF in collaboration with AWE and his big community. A big Thanks to Ori Inbar for the opportunity that give us.
