Art should be accessible to everyone. Art can awaken in people the desire to discover hidden talents and become creators themselves. And the metaverse has the power to make it all possible, finally. As a company that specializes in operating virtual environments, we are excited to confirm the ongoing development of a digital art gallery. The goal of this project is to offer authors — both professionals and amateurs – new tools that endow their creations with immersive properties. Unlike other digital galleries available on the market today, mostly limited to the transfer of physical objects into virtual environments, Sensorium's gallery moves towards understanding the nature of a person's creativity. Sensorium Galaxy aims to contribute to the evolution of the entertainment industry. For example, our first virtual world PRISM, expected for release after the completion of the closed beta, is dedicated to electronic music. This digital space is constantly mutating based on the nature of music tracks. The Sensorium Digital Art Gallery is integrated into our second virtual world — Motion, dedicated to the practices of self-development and self-discovery. The concept of our gallery is not built around the development of digital copies of existing artworks. As of today, there are world leaders in that specific field, and, if necessary, we could collaborate with one of them. Our area of professional interest is englobed by the answers to the following questions: What new opportunities for Humanity could new technologies that allow us to integrate physical values into digital environments bring to the world? What is the meaning of this? What is fundamentally new and valuable that can be achieved by such integrations? Can the ideas of authors from different eras, with the help of digital technologies, become the catalyst for the development of new artistic processes? Our main task is to promote the integration of physical and digital art into the virtual environments of the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse, turning existing art pieces into building materials for the creation of new art or unleashing the creative potential of all users. Our concept for Sensorium's gallery relies on synthesizing several types of art. Visitors of the gallery not only dive deep into artworks but can also run independent experiments with them to create objects of their own, involving fragments of the creative heritage of famous authors. As with every experiential project, we are currently going through a path of reflection and approaching the generation of new value. The first exhibition will feature two internationally acclaimed contemporary artists. Art gallery technologies will complement the exhibitions with immersiveness, bringing users closer to the discovery of the authors' intentions. We will gradually reveal the details of our collaborations as we approach the expected opening date of the art gallery, scheduled for Q4 2022. During the development of this project, we plan to involve our partners in a diverse range of initiatives related to the virtual environments of Sensorium Galaxy. While our first exhibition will first focus on modern art, Sensorium's gallery is being designed for ultimate flexibility. The space will adapt to host any art and create compelling experiences around it.
Sensorium Is Developing An Immersive Art Gallery To Elevate Digital Exhibitions In The Metaverse
Sensorium Signs Strategic Partnership with the Humanity 2.0 Foundation for Metaverse and Tech Initiatives
- The public-private partnership aims to extend the availability of the Vatican’s heritage – manuscripts, masterpieces, and academic initiatives – to people, who otherwise won’t be able to experience it. - Sensorium will also become the first metaverse developer to participate in NGO’s NFT and Digital Assets sub-committees to support the creation of best practices for both Humanity 2.0 initiatives and industry ethical leadership. Sensorium, a leading metaverse developer, leveraging the latest AI, VR, and NFT solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with the Humanity 2.0 Foundation. The parties will work on the development of the first-ever VR and NFT gallery hosting Vatican’s art, content, and academic initiatives. Humanity 2.0 is a non-profit organization tackling obstacles to humanity's socio-economic and cultural development through leadership, media, and technology. This global project is chaired by Father Philip Larrey, Dean of Philosophy at the Pope’s University (Pontifical Lateran University) in Vatican City. Sensorium is a global technology company, developing metaverse with the focus on high-quality immersive experiences ranging from ultra-realistic virtual shows performed by chart-topping artists, including David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, Steve Aoki, to interactive games and meditation practices. This vast digital environment is built by veterans of the gaming and VR industries in collaboration with entertainment powerhouses such as Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and Yann Pissenem’s The Night League. The hope for the public-private partnership is to allow the development of NFT-gallery accessible in VR and desktop and featuring renowned masterpieces from the Vatican's collection. > Father Philip Larrey, Chairman of Humanity 2.0: “We look forward to working with Sensorium to explore ways to democratize art, making it more widely available to people around the world regardless of their socio-economic and geographical limitations. The partnership with Sensorium brings this goal a step further and equips us with the latest tech solutions. The Vatican is among the most visited art museums in the world, attracting over 6 million attendees a year. Its collection consists of nearly 800 artworks by 250 international artists, including Michelangelo, Raphael, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalí, Paul Gauguin, Wassily Kandinsky, Vincent van Gogh, and Pablo Picasso. Founded in the 16th century, the museum hosts invaluable pieces of art history, ranging from renaissance and classicism to post-impressionism and surrealism. Sensorium Galaxy is now in beta and is set to launch later this year. To ensure that it is a truly open experience, the platform will be accessible through the most widely available interfaces. Users can tune in using VR headsets to get a sense of true immersion, use a PC to access an augmented reality experience, or download the mobile application to watch streams, build unique NPCs and communicate with them. About Humanity 2.0 Humanity 2.0 is a Non-Profit, NGO (Non-Government Organization) focused on identifying and removing impediments to human flourishing through the use of technology and human ingenuity. A vehicle for facilitating collaborative ventures between the traditionally siloed public, private and faith-based sectors. Its mission is to identify impediments to human flourishing and then work collaboratively across sectors to remove them by sourcing and scaling bold and innovative solutions. Developed in collaboration with the Dicastery of Promoting Integral Human Development at the Holy See and a consortium of leaders and luminaries, Humanity 2.0 seeks to unite humanity in the common cause of realizing a better world for our children.
Sensorium Launches Global 3D Art Contest
Sensorium is joining forces with Roborace, the company behind the first electric autonomous-car racing series and .ART, the world’s top-level domain created for the international art and culture community, to launch a global art competition dedicated to promoting the transition of the art world into the metaverse. Inspired by the 24 Hours of Le Mans, The 24 Days Of L’.Art presents an opportunity for 3D artists worldwide to exhibit their talents at Roborace — a racing metaverse that combines the excitement of physical racing with artificial intelligence and augmented reality to take motorsports to the next level. The 10 most voted artworks will be added to the AR-enhanced racing tracks of Roborace as both collectibles or obstacles used to increase the difficulty and entertainment of each race. “This event is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for creators to embrace the metaverse, push the boundaries of their imagination and start leveraging the artistic tools that will define the future of art, like virtual and augmented reality. As the metaverse becomes an increasingly structured platform, more creators will want to become a part of it - and The 24 Days Of L’.ART is the perfect starting point for those ready to dive right in,” says Sensorium Deputy CEO, Alex Blagirev. The 24 Days of L’.Art is also being promoted in partnership with Wakatta, an NFT-focused blockchain for the entertainment industry, developed by Sensorium DLT. As explained by Wakatta’s Chief Marketing Officer, Alexander Firsov, the contest is a valuable platform for artists to gain exposure in all-digital environments, anchored by metaverse expertise and experience provided by Roborace and Sensorium. In addition, the event is also aimed at helping dispel reservations surrounding blockchain technology. “Blockchain is having a profound impact on the way artistic pursuits are now unfolding. However, many still seem to think that the technology is hard to use or that it’s beyond access. We don’t believe that to be the case as Wakatta aims to be a fair, transparent, and intuitive blockchain that our partners can always count on. And 24 Days Of L’.ART is the right project to stand behind as we further our goal of delivering access to blockchain technology across the art world,” adds Firsov. Interest artists can submit their works until May 31st, 2022. All details can be found here.
Sensorium Galaxy Hits Over 100K Users In Q1 2022
Users are building up quickly as people from all over the globe prepare for the public launch of Sensorium Galaxy, one of the world’s most anticipated metaverses. Today, we’re excited to confirm that over 100,000 people have already joined the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse as of Q1 2022, mostly as users of our mobile application. “As we move closer to the Web 3.0 paradigm, it’s essential to change our perception of users as consumers and involve them directly in creating the metaverse. To ensure seamless access to the metaverse, we created the Sensorium Galaxy Mobile App — an on-the-go metaverse hub to communicate, play and create,” explains Alex Blagirev, Sensorium’s Deputy CEO. Last week, the SG Mobile App introduced visible changes to its interface, enabling light and dark themes, eliminating pixelation for all assets, and bringing graphics significantly closer to the AAA standard. “The app design is constantly being refined to better adapt to the needs of mobile users and ensure a smooth creative experience. Our goal is to make it easy for everyone with a smartphone to join the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse and co-create it. All AI virtual beings created by users will eventually be available on the VR platform. The SG Mobile App is a true bridge,” adds Blagirev. With the latest update, the app incorporated a renewed character gallery with additional customization options for virtual beings. Users can now change outfit colors for their virtual beings to truly create distinctive looks. Last but not least, the app introduced an in-app video editor, easing the creative process so that users can trim their clips and share them on social networks hassle-free.

Sensorium Announcement Regarding Recent Events
Dear community, Sensorium is a global company with presence in over ten countries. We believe it's our duty to address your possible concerns as a supporter of our company in the midst of the unprecedented events taking place in Eastern Europe. ### Sensorium Galaxy development on track. The development of Sensorium Galaxy remains uninterrupted. As outlined in previous communications, our metaverse is fast approaching its public launch. Development operations remain on track and have not been compromised by recent political and economic events. From the start, our company opted for a diversified operational model that could address the global needs of our technology and products, and shield them in case of unforeseen circumstances. This structure has proven incredibly resilient in periods of instability and is again helping us bypass these unexpected changes to our schedule. ### SENSO holds strong. We are fully aware of the increasing concerns related to SENSO — our metaverse currency. That said, it's important to highlight that we have always kept our holders' best interests in mind and have used our resources to ensure maximum stability and reliability. Taking into account regulatory risks, SENSO was never associated with our company’s presence in Eastern Europe. Instead, its creation, development, and management are handled exclusively by a separate entity — Sensorium DLT. Sensorium is a technology company focused on reshaping our virtual experiences to create more meaningful, closer relationships between people. Experiences that everyone can enjoy in safe environments regardless of their physical location, background, and preferences. We remain committed to building the future we deserve—one with no borders or conflicts. Despite the difficult and challenging situation the world is currently facing, we hope this message clarifies our position and reassures that Sensorium remains strongly committed to securing its leadership position for each and every product under development.
Year In Review: Sensorium In 2021
2021 was a challenging year. With a global pandemic still out there, we had to work from home, shift priorities, take it slow and Zoom our way through the year. And as the world moved closer than ever to becoming fully digitized, we seized on the opportunities, too. This was the year when we collectively started talking about the real uses of technologies like AR and VR. Then there was also the explosion of NFTs, crypto and Web3. And who could forget Facebook’s very memeable META rebranding? Clearly, lots to unpack. And for Sensorium it was full steam ahead, all the way - We designed the metaverse, partnered with the world’s biggest stars, unveiled a new series of AI-powered virtual beings, launched our App, unleashed a blockchain, went to new places, won awards and made history. Last year, we committed to building the world's most advanced metaverse. In 2021, we made small steps but big advancements. Next year, we are up to the challenge of bringing forward even greater opportunities in the metaverse. But for now, here’s a look back at all that Sensorium accomplished in the last 12 months.
Sensorium Galaxy Makes a Major Step Towards Public Launch, Reveals New Content and Plans for Expanding Closed Beta
Earlier this year, Sensorium launched a closed beta for its metaverse which allowed testers to explore for the first time two virtual worlds — PRISM, dedicated to extraordinary music events, and MOTION, an underwater-themed world focusing on mindfulness and relaxation. As the end of year approaches, Sensorium is unveiling a major series of updates, bringing the metaverse closer to a public launch, including significant content enhancements and the introduction of a multiplayer mode.
Understanding Generative Music - The Tech Behind Virtual DJs
For millennia, music has been a means of expression for humanity. And making it has been an innately human pursuit, a product of creativity and collaboration made to be listened to and appreciated by all of us. This has taken us through different music eras, from analog to electronic and now digital, each unleashing new genres and ways of consuming content. There's certainly no shortage of creativity. The world's largest streaming music platforms feature millions of songs. Spotify alone sees over 60.000 tracks being uploaded everyday, which equals to roughly 22 million tracks per year. Youtube music claims to have two billion monthly users and Apple Music counts over 60 million paid subscribers. To help sense of it all, platforms rely on advanced music curation tools to help sort through the endless options. If you've ever tried putting together the right playlist for jogging or studying, for example, chances are that artificial intelligence lent a helping hand in the process. AI-driven algorithms and big data have become critical in automating music selection, delivering recommendations and helping you find your next favorite track. But is having a panoply of readily available options resulting in better listening experiences and fueling creativity? Most of us end up listening to the same tracks or genres over and over again, anyways.This has made some argue that the model is broken. But perhaps it's just incomplete. We've been listening to music all along. But what if music listened to us? Enter generative AI music services, a step up in the technology ladder - and beginning of a post-digital era in music-making. Generative music blows open a new era of opportunities where melodies are unpredictable, adaptive, unique and impossible to ever be repeated. This means that listening to music will no longer be a linear experience. It will transcend concerts, albums, tracks and time-limited interactions. AI-powered music is allowing music to better adapt to the preference of users as much as it lets them step into the creative process to co-exist and co-produce.
