London, UK, 18th July 2023 – STYLY, the XR metaverse platform created by Psychic VR Lab Co. is excited to collaborate with AIR RACE X. AIR RACE X is the next generation of motorsports, establishing an unprecedented innovative competition format and spectator style through a new racing format that combines actual flight with the latest digital technology.
Pilots will fly real airplanes at locations around the world and race for the fastest time in a remote format. Spectators can watch the pilots’ flights remotely up close via augmented reality (AR) technology.
This format is called “digital rounds” and consists of round-robin qualifying held over six days and a final tournament held over one day.
A total of eight air race pilots, including Yoshihide Muroya of Japan, Matt Hall of Australia, and Pete McLeod of Canada, will compete in this memorable world-first event, and the final tournament will be held on 15th October 2023 (Sunday) in Shibuya. A centre place of Japanese culture.
In the Digital Round, competition data is generated by collecting and analyzing ultra-high-precision flight data from pilots flying in various locations around the world. It is then uploaded online. The competition data is then turned into a visual representation using augmented reality (AR) technology. On the day of the finals, the pilots will be able to watch their flights in the streets of Shibuya, offering a new way to enjoy motorsports.
This new style of spectating offered by AIR RACE X is made possible by the advanced technology of the real metaverse platform “STYLY”.
By holding up an XR device or smartphone running the “STYLY” application, spectators can watch the race planes fly through the streets of Shibuya as if it were happening right before their eyes. The race will also be broadcast online to the entire world, allowing visitors to enjoy the excitement of the race via live video streaming, just as they have done in previous air races.
STYLY is a real metaverse platform that enables the creation and distribution of XR content linked to urban spaces and has facilitated many creator training and location-based projects.
STYLY is equipped with 3D data from cities around the world, which can be used to create and distribute content linked to real space. Furthermore, STYLY is compatible with multiple devices, allowing users to experience AR content on a variety of devices, including smartphones, AR/MR glasses, web browsers, and VRHMDs.
We will continue to collaborate with creators and cities around the world to promote the “Real Metaverse” that augments the real world with technology and create an “era of wearing space” where XR/Real Metaverse is used in our lifestyles.
