The technology of the future is setting up in the Pyrénées-Orientales

Place : The Soler (66)

The future of the metaverse in France is perhaps being built in Soler, in the Pyrénées-Orientales. The IDEM school has just inaugurated two studios with this new technology. Already very popular in the United States, it is seen as the successor to the Internet. The metaverse combines augmented reality and virtual spaces.

What is the metaverse? It is therefore a parallel world with totally virtual cities and people. You can access it with your avatar and interact live with people on the other side of the world. Already known for video games, virtual reality tends to be exported to many areas. Pioneer of electronic music, Jean-Michel Jarre wishes to build the future of the metaverse in France.

Established for four years in the heart of the digital city of Soler, IDEM has therefore decided to develop a sector totally dedicated to the metaverse. The objective is simple: to prepare students for the jobs of tomorrow. And a first start-up has been set up here since January 2022. Specializing in virtual entertainment, VRooM plans to create 60 jobs in two years.
