Vancouver, British Columbia – November 28th, 2022 – CBC Vancouver recently featured Departure Lounge Inc. (“Departure Lounge”) in its 8-part series ‘Web3Worlds,’ on how Vancouver is shaping the future of the Metaverse.
“One way to think about the metaverse is as a collection of immersive video game-like experiences that resembles real-world experiences in which everyone can participate,” said James Hursthouse, the chief [executive] officer of Departure Lounge, a company also based in Vancouver that provides technologies that facilitate access to the metaverse.
James Hursthouse, CEO, and Adam Rogers, VP of Creative & Head of Studio of Departure Lounge are recognized among the trailblazers of the creative tech sector based in Vancouver.
Heavily featured in the episode, “Creating Virtual Worlds,” Adam and James discuss the seamlessness of building virtual worlds in the Metaverse with the use of cutting-edge technologies such as volumetric capture and markerless motion capture.
“What we’re really trying to do with Departure Lounge and with Metastage is to bring humans into this Metaverse and have you feel a part of their story, engage with their stories or actually drive part of the story yourself when you’re in there,” said Rogers.
