Several companies, including Facebook, Epic Games and Decentraland, have invested heavily in creating metaverse platforms in recent years. The thing with creating a metaverse platform, however, is that it requires an investment of time, money and resources; this isn’t something that most individuals or small companies can easily accomplish on their own.
That’s the key phrase, though: “on their own.” But with the likes of a metaverse creation platform like Redbrick, anyone can create metaverse content easily through block combination without knowledge of text coding.
Redbrick, the company behind the "Creator Economy" ecosystem, has nearly 200,000 creators who have created more than 600,000 metaverse contents using Objective Oriented Block Coding (OOBC) technology. The company has attracted a total investment of $20 million, including $15 million from NH Investment & Securities Co. in its Series B financing.
Redbrick's success revolutionizes the way individuals can participate in the metaverse, and its OOBC technology is now patented in the U.S.
Redbrick CEO Yang Yeongmo made the announcement:
“Obtaining a patent for the OOBC technology in the U.S. has its significance in that Redbrick's differentiated technology has been recognized in the U.S. which is said to be the birthplace of advanced IT technology with the presence of Silicon Valley,” said Yeongmo. "We will make efforts to expand the ecosystem by attracting metaverse creators not only in domestic market but also in other countries into Redbrick creator economy market.”
So, what exactly is OOBC, and how does it help individuals create metaverse content?
OOBC revolutionizes metaverse content creation by enabling users to write code in a sentence-like structure using a drag-and-drop method. This innovative technology makes it easy for individuals who lack text-based coding language knowledge, such as C and Python, to create metaverse content.
OOBC operates by combining blocks of coding language, akin to assembling an English sentence by putting together vocabulary cards. The unique aspect of OOBC is that it allows users to combine coding language blocks in a "subject-verb-predicate" order, making it simpler for beginners to code.
Unlike other block-coding techniques, OOBC's drag-and-drop method makes coding more accessible to those new to the field.
The patent registration was completed in March and follows a previous registration of the OOBC technology in Korea in August 2022.
