Metaverse Asset Centers: Open Builder

Instead of entering a metaverse with a storefront presence to sell virtual goods, Lowe’s is inviting builders to a new asset center called Open Builder. This hub, open and accessible to all authors, was specifically created to address “key compatibility and accessibility issues”.

Using items from real shelves, Lowe’s Open Builder makes over 500 3D product assets available for free download. These 3D assets include everything from lighting solutions and outdoor furniture to decorative rugs, decorative accents and accessories. These free assets from Lowe’s have applications in the metaverse and beyond as they can be used for gaming, augmented reality, and creative design.

Along with the launch of this new hub, Lowe’s is releasing a limited collection of NFT wearables for builders in Decentraland.
