#IndustrialMetaverse: Microsoft is selling the metaverse now ⁠— and it’s helping make everything from robots to ketchup

  • For Microsoft’s industrial metaverse, that means stitching together many of the company’s technologies like cloud computing to help factory workers and managers build products faster and more efficiently.
  • Jessica Hawk, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of mixed reality, told CNBC in an interview last week that the industrial metaverse is a taste of what technology can accomplish today before it’s fully immersive in the future.
  • The difference is Microsoft has a head start, and it’s actually selling its mixed reality technology to companies today while also giving developers the tools they need to make their own metaverse experiences.
