The new building is scheduled to be used by approximately 4,700 people belonging to organizations, such as the Global Innovation Unit, that are involved in the creation of innovation, including the development of cutting-edge technologies and new business development at NEC. By making use of NEC’s diverse assets, the company aims to become a forum for “creating knowledge” by interacting with startups and partners around the world and creating social value through open innovation.

Visitors will be welcomed at an open main entrance on the second floor, and the fifth to twelfth floors will have have an atrium structure in the center with an interior staircase to provide opportunities for interaction and communication among users. In addition to office floors, the building will also have a floor for evaluation experiments and demonstrations, a floor for joint research and development with partners, and a floor for events and networking. Moreover, as a flagship building for work style reform, a “Communication Hub” will be provided as a forum for collaboration with team members throughout the building, as well as an “Innovation Hub” where individuals from inside and outside the company can gather and a variety of digital technologies, such as facial recognition, will be installed.

As part of efforts to achieve carbon neutrality and promote energy conservation, the building will feature methods for taking advantage of solar power generation from the roof, geothermal heat, efficient natural ventilation using the atrium and natural lighting through sunlight from skylights. Furthermore, NEC plans to optimize control using various sensors, including lighting control from motion sensors and illuminance sensors, human flow and radiation temperature detection control using image sensors, and ventilation control using real-time occupancy detection.

As a countermeasure against disasters, the building will adopt a seismic isolation structure and a machine/equipment arrangement that does not impair the building’s functions, even with a flood height of 2.6m.

As a key measure of NEC’s Mid-term Management Plan 2025, the company is promoting “Smart Work 2.0” work style reform in order to create an environment in which organizations and individuals can perform at their best and enhance job satisfaction by following NEC’s Code of Values(1).

The Metaverse can be used to create smart home in the future?

Huisen Household Intl. (02127.HK) announced that it has entered into a strategic cooperation agreement with Netjoy Holdings Limited (02131.HK). According to the agreement, Huisen Household will appoint Netjoy as a short video online marketing solution provider for the promotion of the Group’s smart home products and the provision of big data management and analysis for improving and optimizing the efficiency of marketing and advertising campaign of the Group. In addition, the Group and Netjoy shall jointly cooperate for the development of a cloud-based virtual reality smart home project based on Metaverse, including the development of virtual reality exhibition hall for consumers’ interactive experience, live broadcast sales by artificial intelligence (“AI”) sales anchor and promotion and sales of the smart home products of the Group through the application of AI technologies

Huisen Household said that it is one of the Group’s business strategies to develop smart home products under its own brands. Leveraging on Netjoy’s big data analysis and AI capabilities, this strategic cooperation can assist the Group to enhance brand awareness and its smart home products to to-B and to-C markets through different marketing and advertising campaigns and innovative means, which can in turn increase the Group’s market shares of the smart home products in China, as well as raising brand awareness and reputation of the Group.

The “Metaverse” can be imagined as an extension of the real world, creating virtual scenes and virtual characters in the virtual world by combining virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). The metaverse concept has developed rapidly since last year. In addition to attracting a series of virtual asset investments, different activities have been successfully launched in different virtual scenes. For example, Ariana Grande, an American singer and Travis Scott, a rapper have successfully held virtual concerts with over a million viewers watched online.

As people are moving from the real world to the virtual world, major international brands are also pouring into the “Metaverse” concepts. This phenomenon reflects that the virtual world can help brands to establish close ties with different groups, especially the young generation. As a representative of Internet 3.0, the Metaverse can instantly connect buyers and sellers, merchants, and customers directly. With the improvement of hardware access equipment in the future, the Metaverse will be more widely used, and become a combination of the real world and the virtual world. People will have their own “home” in the virtual world with a variety of smart home products. The market is looking forward to seeing the effects of this strategic cooperation agreement of Huisen Household in the future.

Faceless to Create the First Fashion Show of the Metaverse

New York, NY, Dec 25, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – Faceless, a unique set of 2345 non-fungible tokens [NFTs], launched on Ethereum blockchain, has announced its decision to create the first fashion show on the budding metaverse space. Uniting high-end fashion, fostering community bond, and integrating technology, Faceless aims at setting up the first generation of fashion leaders in the growing NFT and metaverse industries.

With plans to launch the first fashion show of the metaverse at an undisclosed date, over 300 unparalleled and Haute clothing pieces have been designed for the FW 21/22 collection. Unprecedentedly, owning an NFT attracts the ownership of the piece of clothing attached to the specific NFT purchased.

In a bid to advance community growth, Faceless will regularly share exclusive sneak peeks, explain, in simplified terms, the production processes, and get members fully involved in the minting and launch phases. Approximately an hour before the mint, a 9 minutes live fashion show on Instagram and Discord will ensue. Displaying all the collections lined up for FW 21/22, Faceless is creating the first fashion show of the metaverse and in extension, one of the very few in the NFT space.

Another remarkable feature of Faceless is the introduction of rewards for NFT holders. Faceless holders will become part of the Faceless Maison, an exclusive group of people with access to plethoras of fashion shows across the globe. Additionally, each piece of high-end clothing holders receive will come with the NFT number. Also, all of the pieces are handcrafted and will subsequently be hand-tailored to the NFT holder’s size and as hitherto mentioned, will have the NFT number stamped on the tag.

Before the launch, Faceless will announce a partnership with one of the best designer schools in France. Owing to this partnership, these Haute clothing pieces will be created and distributed to holders, regardless of location.

Championing the proliferation of fashion shows in the metaverse and NFT spaces, Faceless will release a set of collections for the Summer 22 event. The company plans to collaborate with famous luxury fashion brands and will make the announcement a month before the launch of Summer 22. With the primary goal being to create the first-ever luxury Maison in the metaverse, Faceless hopes this will spur nascent brands to create and launch unique concepts in the metaverse.

About Faceless

The company behind Faceless through this initiative is seeking to pioneer a paradigm shift in the metaverse and NFT. Offering a set of unparalleled NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain, the company tries to incentivize holders by delivering, to their respective doors, high-end luxury clothing pieces as a reward for owning a Faceless NFT.
