Last month, Theta Labs partnered with Sony to commercialize 3D NFTs viewable on Sony’s Spatial Reality Display (SRD). Now, Sony has just unveiled its “Tiki Guy” NFT, which can be viewed on the SRD. It’s safe to say that this is just one step closer to augmented reality!
About the Tiki Guy NFT Drop
There are only 510 Tiki Guy NFTs in total. In addition, the NFT has a 3D asset that holders can view on the SRD. According to the designer: “The original purpose was to make them as scary as possible to scare off ‘evil spirits’. They would be endowed with ‘mana’, the spiritual energy of power and strength. As early as the 1950s and 1960s, Polynesian culture entered popular culture in the United States with “tiki bars” and other forms of art. It’s still a fun and cheesy art form in the US today.” Those interested can get their hands on the NFT for as little as $100.
An introduction to the Sony metaverse
Additionally, those who don’t own an SRD can do so by purchasing the Tiki Guy Pack, which is limited to 10 editions. This bundle includes the exclusive Tiki Guy NFT and Sony Spatial Reality Display (SRD). Both the NFT and the bundle will be available on June 17 at 21:00 CET.
Sony is launching the Tiki Guy NFT on ThetaDrop, Theta Labs’ NFT marketplace. NFT enthusiasts know ThetaDrop as the marketplace where Katy Perry’s Genesis NFT collection was released; as well as the NFTs “American Idol”, “World Poker Tour” and “The Price is Right”. By launching this NFT, Sony introduces people to the Sony metaverse and cements the company’s position on the Web3.
