StarBase's creators believe hybrid events are the future for companies and brands in a post-pandemic world. There are many firsts at StarBase ranging from being the first event space in Las Vegas utilizing cutting edge holoportation technology to operate as a hybrid real world + Metaverse event venue. StarBase has a "digital twin" in Microsoft’s AltspaceVR which is a world presented by a group of developers and professional producers at Fresh Wata to replicate the physical venue as an interactive 3D environment online. StarBase can be visited in virtual reality from a headset, like an Oculus 2, or a Mac computer or PC. In other words, the venue is not limited to the physical location in Las Vegas but can be virtually accessed by anyone as their avatar inside the virtual StarBase location. In general, our team believes the #SkyIsNotTheLimit and that the power of immersive technology can be used in exciting new ways to create community, commerce and fabulous events!
