Pune’s Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum has entered into a memorandum of understanding with BharatVerse, India’s first metaverse platform.
This makes the museum the first Indian museum to opt for the metaverse route. The metaverse experience will be accessible to users through head-mounted devices, mobile phones, web browsers and more. According to BharatVerse, the platform envisions creating “digital twin places of special interest” that can be experienced by people across the globe and help to increase the promotion of such sites. The existing 3-D virtual tour of the museum will be hosted on the BharatVerse platform. The museum’s director, Sudhanva Ranade, says the metaverse experience will provide an immersive experience so virtual visitors can get a feeling of being present inside the museum in real time.
