3DWRT meeting of 19 May 2013

The winning concept for the Metaverse Kickstarter is the eMetaverse Marketplace.  We are looking to further develop the concept, provide a demo, and then apply for crowd source funding.  There was discussion on setting up as a B-Corp, S-Corp, or Non-Profit.  We also want to look for ways to parallel this with the real life market so we can open doors for mixed reality purchases, like buying both virtual and real shoes at the same time, and making shopping more of a social experience with friends.  Video of the meeting with chat session show below.   Click here to see the full results of the Kickstarter Voting
