NVIDIA recently revealed that consumers have already witnessed some of its “Omniverse” technology.
Elaborating that the reveal took place back in April during its GTC 2021 conference, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang could be seen speaking in it what appeared to be his kitchen. The big surprise was discovered from NVIDIA’s Connecting the Metaverse video where they explain that everything from the cabinets, stove, cooking utensils, and even screws were built into the “Omniverse.”
Using a mixture of tools like Photoshop, After Effects, Substance Painter, Unreal Engine, Blender, and Autodesk Maya, close to 8,000 objects were fit into the scene. There were even Easter eggs hidden inside the deepfake scene like an NVIDIA coffee grinder, Tao olive oil, and a LEGO Jensen Huang. Combined with a GC version of Huang, and the whole Omniverse was pulled off — seen at 1:02:29 to 1:02:56 in the keynote.
NVIDIA further explains the Omniverse as, “an open platform built for virtual collaboration and real-time photorealistic simulation. Complex creator, designer, and engineering visual workflows are transformed as users and teams connect design tools, assets, and projects for collaborative iteration in a virtual world.”
