Animoca Brands Corporation Ltd and 3D-printing company Arevo Inc have partnered to produce a line of custom carbon fibre bikes inspired by and decorated with individually owned NFT artwork.
Animoca’s partnership with Arevo represents a significant step toward connecting the ‘matterverse’ to the ‘metaverse’, linking unique digital goods with unique physical goods.
‘High-end’ carbon fibre products
Future product releases will marry Arevo’s ability to enable mass customisation of high-end carbon fibre products with NFT-validated artwork from various communities of artists and owners.
Animoca Brands co-founder and executive chairman Yat Siu said: “Arevo’s groundbreaking carbon fibre 3D printing technology is a peek at the structure of the open metaverse that Animoca Brands is championing – a Web3 future in which personalisation is routine, digital ownership is ubiquitous and the wall between physical and virtual goods comes tumbling down.”
Arevo CEO Sonny Vu said: “We’re thrilled to provide Animoca Brands’ artists and owners with distinguished tangible goods linked to digital assets.
“Our partnership validates the technological progress Arevo has made over the last two years and positions Arevo to scale the technological capabilities showcased by its in-house brands into substantial B2B applications.”
Arevo and Animoca Brands NFT-validated carbon fibre bikes are expected to be unveiled in the first quarter of 2023.
Arevo is a technology company that automates the design and fabrication of large, geometrically complex, continuous CFRP composite products through a suite of innovations in materials science, robotics and design software. Technological applications span consumer, industrial, automotive, heavy industries, construction and aerospace sectors.
