When your office is in the metaverse

Kang Yo-Sik, president of the Seoul Digital Foundation, declared that they will try their ‘best to use Metaverse Seoul in providing equal services to every Seoul citizen’. — AFP Relaxnews

A tech company in Seoul has opened a new office branch that is identical to its headquarters but located in the metaverse. Same chairs, same coffee cups but all virtual. It represents a revolution for remote working, and the foundation hopes that will encourage better production and connections among employees.

The Seoul Digital Foundation (SDF) is setting up in the metaverse. On Dec 22, the foundation, associated with the Seoul Metropolitan Government in South Korea, announced it was opening an office in Gather Town. Don't bother consulting your regular mapping applications: Gather Town is a video conferencing application in which each individual logs in with an avatar and can roam the virtual world to meet other users.

"The SDF aims to apply key technologies of the fourth industrial revolution, such as metaverse and AI, to its administrative tasks," declared the foundation in a press release. It added, "Particularly to help Seoul improve its competitiveness as a global smart city, it will use metaverse in its entire work process."
