Building a thriving city on Mars may not be in the cards yet, but Everdome, the most hyper-realistic metaverse, is set to make it happen when the project launches their Alpha version this year. Thanks to deep scientific input from a lab informing all aspects of the Everdome experience, players will immerse themselves into realistic environment as is possible.
How is Everdome making the Martian tour a possibility?
Everdome’s approach to creating a captivating environment combines elements like scientific research on Martian geology and material sciences, deep knowledge of space architecture and engineering, space mission architecture, and cutting-edge 3D design, amongst others.
The project draws on the expertise of its resident Space Architecture Consultant, Leszek Orzechowski. As well as being a renowned space researcher and winner of awards, like the ESA Moon Challenge, Marsception, and the Mars Colony Design competition, Orzechowski is the founder of Space is More, a project focused on space architecture and engineering.
Orzechowski is the Director of the LunAres Research Station lab in Poland, where he works with leading global space agencies and astronauts to learn more about the many aspects of space exploration, and lends this knowledge to the Everdome metaverse. According to Orzechowski, it isn’t just Everdome that can benefit from current and ongoing research – Everdome itself could foster better understanding of how future Mars colonies may function.
“I’m eager to see how people will act in the metaverse, how behavior and social interactions change as the human community merges reality with virtual existence,” said Orzechowski.
“Seeing how people interact within Everdome may even contribute towards our approach to future Mars colonies. Data from the metaverse can help us understand how humanity could adapt to living in space, which could prove invaluable to the future of space exploration.”
What are the specifics of the virtual tour?
To give Everdome players an in-depth experience, Genesis NFT T1 holders have been invited to participate as crew members for the first Space Habitat mission at the LunAres Station.
The mission will simulate life on a distant world, giving participants a real-life taste of what life in the Everdome’s metaverse would be like. Over three days, which includes two nights, the lucky selected crew members will live through the simulated challenges of a mission to Mars, including limited resources, equipment, communication, and environmental stressors.
Rob Gryn, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Everdome, said: “This is a real-life, analog astronaut experience that gives our players a fully immersive, unparalleled feel for the environment we’re creating in Everdome. By integrating an expert such as Leszek into our team, we’re able to deliver above and beyond anything that’s existed before in the metaverse worlds, taking Everdome one step further into the world of hyper-realism.”
“This level of deep knowledge, based in solid research and scientific understanding, combined with impeccably realistic graphics, will make Everdome an absolutely unmissable experience.”
Built on Unreal Engine 5, Everdome will deliver a real-world-extended experience – pulling on the vision of renowned concept artists, game creators, 3D designers, Hollywood VFX specialists, urban planning experts, a development team that has been delivering graphics and effects for over a decade, and a marketing team that has already found bounds of success.
Everdome’s Phase 1, set in Hatta, during which users can explore the launch room and learn more about space exploration and the journey to come. Phases 2 and 3 continue the journey, from mission launch and life aboard the vessel, to landing and settling on Mars.
