Salt Lake City, Utah: Dimension X, Inc. (DimX), a Metaverse company developing a platform that radically simplifies the creation of immersive experiences, is hosting the Metaverse Creators Summit, a virtual learning event focused on next generation immersive storytelling to be held on November 16th, 2022. Registration is open at https://mcsummit.dev

“Consider this event to be the Metaverse 101 for all who want to take part in the economic opportunities that this next evolution of the internet will provide,” said Scott Robertson, DimX CEO. “And, storytelling will be at the center of every great immersive experience. There will be something for everyone. For advanced developers, we will have a session on Unity’s Data-Oriented Technology Stack, a key enabling technology for complex Metaverse experiences, that lets your code run faster on multicore processors without the typical heavy programming headaches.” 

The virtual event includes two keynotes, eight lightning talks, two networking sessions, and a follow-on hackathon a few weeks later. Learning, networking and creating are the three priorities of the event. Perhaps most valuable, facilitated networking will be organized in two formats: 1) Speed networking with quick introductions 2) Round table introductions, and a facilitated discussion about Ball’s keynote talk. 

Headlining the event is keynote speaker, Matthew Ball, author of The Metaverse: And How it Will Revolutionize Everything

About Ball’s work, Tim Sweeney, CEO of Fortnite-maker Epic Games, said: “Matthew Ball’s essays have defined, analyzed, and inspired the Metaverse for years. His book is an approachable and essential guide to the strategic, technical, and philosophical foundations of this new medium.”

Respected as one of the best Metaverse thought leaders, Ball has delivered an exceptional overview of the history of the internet leading to the present situation. In part 3 of his book, Ball discusses the winners and losers, the business opportunities and the personal value we might realize as participants in the next evolution of the Internet. 

One thing appears clear. Immersive and engaging experiences will permeate people’s lives as the physical world is augmented with smart technology. Lives will improve if first-world learning experiences can be made available ubiquitously. 

The first 100 registrants at the Metaverse Creators Summit will receive a signed copy of Matthew Ball’s book.

Salt Lake City, Utah: Dimension X, Inc. (DimX) today announced the close of its pre-seed round of funding for $600,000. Startup Ignition Ventures (SIV), a new pre-seed fund in Utah filled the entire round. 

“With more than 20 years of angel investing across more than 100 companies, I’m tuned into winners,” said John Richards, SIV’s managing partner. “And the stars seem to be well aligned. The founding team has several unfair advantages, and their platform strategy couldn’t be any better timed to capitalize on a gigantic opportunity at the front end of an evolving market. With our lean startup methodology, we are committed to helping this team to win big.”

“The emerging Metaverse presents a massive opportunity to improve how people train, educate, design, simulate, entertain and market,” says Scott Robertson, CEO of Dimension X. “However, creating immersive experiences today is still way too hard. We are dramatically simplifying the process just like WordPress did for website building, Figma did for interface design, and Unity did for game development. Dimension X is revolutionizing immersive experience creation and making it accessible to millions of new Metaverse creators.”

“We have architected a Metaverse creator platform with simplicity, extensibility, and interoperability at its core,” says Kyle Ringgenberg, CTO of Dimension X. “Our technology enables creators and storytellers to build engaging experiences with drag-and-drop simplicity. Additionally, developers will realize significant efficiency using our APIs to push the limits of immersive experiences in new and unimagined ways.”

“Perhaps most exciting is the potential of the Metaverse to globally improve lives,“ says Chris Keller, COO of Dimension X. “The immersive nature of experiences that can be built on our platform may dramatically accelerate learning by increasing engagement, repetition, and targeted training. Immersive technology may be the great equalizer that reduces the cost, time and distance barriers to achieve the ‘10,000 hours to Mastery’ rule.

This new funding will be used for the following initiatives:

  • Hire a world-class team of immersive developers, designers and product strategists
  • Develop the Metaverse creator platform
  • Gather, train and support the Metaverse Creators community. Provide your email at https://dimX.dev to get invited to the group.

 

Apart from the DimX Metaverse Creator platform, the company’s service arm has already begun creating immersive experiences for commercial clients including simulation software for the Christa McAuliffe Space Center and Telos University. DimX has developed flight simulation training software for Randon Aviation and its Flight School Manager platform. Additionally, DimX is contributing to a ‘seeing is believing’ experience that uses LiDAR technology to generate real-time-editable 3D digitally twins, for better client visualization.

Salt Lake City, Utah: Dimension X, Inc. (DimX), a Metaverse company developing a platform that radically simplifies the creation of immersive experiences, today announced the addition of Eric Denna to the company’s advisory board.  

Denna brings nearly four decades of experience leading I.T., sales, operations, and professional services for organizations in multiple industries, ranging from technology startups to major university systems. His storied career includes serving as Chief Information Officer (CIO) for the University of Maryland, the University of Utah, Brigham Young University, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. An angel investor and advisor to over a dozen startups, Denna sits on the board of directors for several standout companies including Health Catalyst, OC Tanner, Lucid, and Workday. 

In addition, Denna was a member of the Education CIO Advisory Board for Apple Founder Steve Jobs helping his leadership team on a number of education initiatives.

“The wealth of wisdom and business acumen that Eric brings to DimX is unprecedented,” said Chris Keller, DimX COO and President. “We are thrilled that Eric has chosen to share his deep insight and groundbreaking ideas with us as we continue to develop and commercialize the software platform that will dramatically simplify the workflow for Metaverse creators who build immersive experiences.”

With a leadership career that has spanned nearly 40 years, from the inception of the internet, Denna sees great potential in the Metaverse to improve training, educating, marketing, gaming, and entertainment. 

“I’ve seen immersive technology mature dramatically over the last 20 years to the significant inflection point we are at today,” said Eric Denna, “We are on the front edge of the next wave of value creation, but one gigantic problem persists. It is still too difficult, expensive, and time consuming for creators to build meaningful immersive experiences. DimX is solving that problem and their architecture includes some killer ideas to enable better code reuse, interoperability, and a focus on nonlinear storytelling.”

The current market includes some 9.5 million developers, but the potential exists to grow that several times over using the DimX platform. 

Part of Denna’s role will be to advise DimX on its platform architecture as well as its training processes, including the Metaverse Creators Summit, a one-of-a-kind virtual learning event on November 16th, 2022. Registration is open at https://mcsummit.dev

Eric Denna holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from BYU, a master’s degree in information systems from BYU, and a doctorate in information systems from Michigan State University, where he was the Coopers & Lybrand Doctoral Scholar.
