Sri Lanka’s largest mobile provider, Dialog Axiata PLC, has introduced the country’s first immersive 3D metaverse, titled Futureverse. In the experiential virtual world, users can socialize, take part in events and workshops, watch movies, visit exhibitions, play games, and shop for Dialog products and services available at Dialog Experience Centres.

The virtual world is powered by immersive technologies, such as virtual reality (VR) and extended reality (XR), to offer unique experiences. Futureverse also allows users to create their own customized avatars for personalized virtual interactions with friends via voice or chat.

Sri Lanka’s metaverse “extends a seemingly borderless digital realm that delivers endless experiences and possibilities, where visitors can experience a unique virtual world filled with abstract landscapes and objects.”

Futureverse has seven zones for hangouts and immersive experiences: Lobby, Device Zone, Dialog Home, Idea Innovation, Customer Experience, Hangout Zone, and Conference Area.

“With the Metaverse being a part of web 3.0, the next evolutionary stage of the internet, we are pleased to introduce ‘Futureverse,’ heralding a new virtual world which has the power to transform every aspect of our daily lives, including how we socialize, work, and play. As the trusted digital companion of Sri Lankans, Dialog remains committed to pioneering innovations in the digital space to empower our people, industries, and the nation at large, to drive inclusive growth,”

said Lasantha Theverapperuma, Group Chief Operating Officer of Dialog.

Dialog has also recently held Sri Lanka’s first digital art contest, “Color Your Dreams,” on Divinci’s Metaverse Art Gallery. The judge panel chose 20 digital artworks to display in the metaverse and awarded cash prizes to the artists.

Countries and cities are entering the metaverse to offer citizens and visitors a different way to experience tourism and interaction. In October, UAE and Multiverse Labs unveiled the world’s first real-scale city in the metaverse, Sharjahverse. The virtual city was created using AI technology and 3D videography and encompasses all of Sharjah’s 2,590 square kilometers (1,000 square miles). The Metropolitan Government of Seoul also launched a beta version of its virtual municipal world, Metaverse Seoul.
