Khronos Group Launches Standards Effort for An Open and Interoperable Metaverse

The Khronos Group, which sets standards for 3D technologies, has come together with other groups to oversee the process of creating the standards for the metaverse. The Metaverse Standards Forum is announcing that it will attempt to create standards for industries to create an open, interoperable, and inclusive metaverse.

It is an effort to ensure that the metaverse, which is viewed as the next generation of computing that can bring us a spatial internet experience, will not be a closed ecosystem ruled by one company or a small group of companies who can extract a toll on developers and users.

The Metaverse Standards forum will explore where the lack of interoperability is holding back metaverse deployment and how the work of Standards Developing Organizations defining and evolving needed standards may be coordinated and accelerated. Open to any organization at no cost, the forum will focus on pragmatic, action-based projects such as implementation prototyping, hackathons, plugfests, and open-source tooling to accelerate the testing and adoption of metaverse standards, while also developing consistent terminology and deployment guidelines.
