Quick take:

  • It has announced a partnership with Ready Player Me to bring full-body avatars to its platform.
  • Avatars will be able to curate exhibitions, host live events, and socialize more dynamically in Spatial.

Spatial, a metaverse art exhibition and gallery creation platform, has announced today a partnership with online 3D avatar creation platform, Ready Player Me. 

At the same time, it has also unveiled a new look on its website, showcasing the different exhibition spaces it’s hosting and the full-body customisable avatars that can be created on the platform.

The partnership with Ready Player Me will give users more freedom for self-expression in the metaverse, and unlock wearable and accessory assets that can be monetized as NFTs. 

With the Ready Player Me integration, users will be able to build their own avatars and curate exhibitions, host live events and socialise more dynamically on Spatial. This is part of Spatial’s shift in focus to bringing greater representation and inclusivity to Web3 self-identity.

“Our creators and partners continue to push the boundaries of possibility, bringing communities together through customized experiential spaces. Adding legs to our avatars is so much more than just a feature update — it transforms the experience and opens doors to a host of new audiences. We’re committed to supporting inclusivity, self-identity and representation in virtual space and believe fashion is a core component on this journey,” said Jacob Loewenstein, Head of Growth at Spatial.

As part of the platform’s mission to become the most inclusive Web3 platform, Spatial will be introducing more culturally relevant clothing including hijabs and saris for women, with further customisations including non-binary avatars. 

The company noted that it will continue its exploration in this area to help people interact and express themselves in ways that feel aligned with their physical and cultural identities.

“Spatial has been one of the most requested integrations by our users,” said Timmu Tõke, CEO and co-founder of Ready Player Me. “We couldn’t be more excited to bring our full-body avatars to Spatial and give users of the platform a completely new way to express themselves in Web3.

Formerly an augmented and virtual reality platform, Spatial pivoted into becoming a metaverse space for NFT exhibitions, brand experiences, and conferences on Web3, mobile, or VR in December. The company raised $25 million in funding last December to further its growth and vision to become a 3D hub for NFT creators and their communities.

The platform has since partnered with NFT marketplaces Opensea, SuperRare and Rarible, as well as toy company Mattel. Users can view and purchase NFTs directly within Spatial. The company has recently announced support for Polygon NFTs as part of its multi-chain expansion.
