WEB3 AND ENHANCING TECHNOLOGIES
Web3 is a massive unification of people, places, things, events and experiences through technology exceeding anything we’ve seen in the past.
The technology paradigm is based on blockchain, but is also interacting with, being impacted by and enhanced by other technologies that make it more challenging to navigate.
Those technologies include: (1) artificial intelligence, (2) augmented/virtual/extended realities (AR/VR/XR), (3)broadband connections, (4) computing chips and quantum computing, (5) data storage, (6) edge computing, (7) Internet of Things (Iot), (8) materials science, (9) robotics, (10) secure computing, (11) transportation and (12) 3D printing/additive manufacturing.
All these technologies are defined as exponential due to the speed in which they are developing and the effects they are having on all aspects of life.
Web3 and its enhancing technologies are giving rise to the metaverse, an extended reality that comprises of many separate networks, along with new social channels and communities.
Open3 Collective aims to help the outdoor industry not only understand and effectively utilize web3, but do so in context of these additional technologies, extended realities and social channels.
We are also using the Open3 Collective website as a testing ground for web3 and supporting technologies, allowing members to gain hands-on experience and learn through experimentation. This also means that UI’s, UX’s, functions and content may not work the best, which is a tradeoff for testing things.
