Casio is taking its G-Shock watches to the metaverse
Casio is taking its G-Shock watches to the metaverse. Not Meta's metaverse, but VRChat's.
The Japanese watchmaker will be opening a "metaverse-based virtual store" on VRChat on 6 October 2023. It's the first time any watch brand has opened a space on the VRChat platform.
For the uninitiated, VRChat is an online virtual world where users can roam around with self-created avatars. It's similar to other virtual worlds like Second Life and Habbo Hotel.
The virtual G-Shock store will provide a watch customization service where users can create their own G-Shock watches and then equip them on their avatars.
Users can also purchase digital watch components from Booth, the global marketplace in VRChat, and use them to create virtual G-Shock watches for their avatars in the virtual G-Shock store and other VRChat worlds.
In a nutshell, users and fans of the brands will be able to interact and create G-Shock watches in VRChat's metaverse. According to Casio, it wants to "encourage a culture of outfitting [virtual] avatars with timepieces" and allow its fans to interact with its watches in new ways.
