LGL to Deploy Metaverse Experiences for Brand Activations
The Company Continues to Develop its Ultra Realistic Metaverse Offering and Custom Tools to Allow Partners to Create Highly Customisable and Engaging Experiences for Their Customers
Vancouver, British Columbia December 12, 2022 / Cision / – Looking Glass Labs Ltd. (“LGL” or the “Company”) (NEO: NFTX) (AQSE: NFTX) (OTC: LGSLF) (FRA: H1N), a leading Web3 platform specialising in immersive metaverse environments, play-to-earn tokenization and blockchain monetisation strategies, announces that its wholly owned subsidiary House of Kibaa (“HoK”) has developed the technical platform and preliminary suite of tools to create tailored brand activations inside of its metaverse offering.
The metaverse industry is set to generate up to $5 trillion in value by 2030.1 LGL is working swiftly to provide the software tools to help maximise the industry’s mainstream adoption and commercial growth. The Company is currently working to establish partnerships with a target set of companies and organisations to further cement the Company’s ultra realistic metaverse as a revenue driving platform.
LGL’s metaverse offering currently has 11 environments that will be fully customisable. The Company is focused on fast-tracking its ability to create entire worlds, with architecture and experiences bespoke to any brand or creator activation. Consumers of all experience levels are expected to be able to easily access these digital metaverse activations based on the Company’s incorporation of Unreal Engine 5, Unity 4 and pixel streaming, with plans to provide both mobile and desktop flexibility.
Metaverse experiences are being planned to range from new product activations to entire worlds built for corporate clients. The types of activations include but are not limited to:
Bespoke virtual brand worlds;
Custom experiences in the pre-built LGL land types;
Gated and ticketed digital experiences including festivals, concerts, meet and greets, and more;
Immersive digital live streams; and
Retail and product drop events.
The Company is also in the process of developing partnerships with media companies, marketing organisations, automotive brands, fashion companies and others, in order to create the most diverse and realistic metaverse experience for all users and brands. This is expected to allow brands to create further value by monetising existing products, services and/or intellectual properties. This initiative is also being pursued in order for LGL to capture incremental revenue through ongoing royalty streams and product sales.
Management Commentary
“Bringing brand activations to the Pocket Dimension metaverse for multinational companies is something that we envisioned a while ago, and are excited to make a reality in the near future for our corporate clients, for Pocket Dimension users, and for the community at large. We are always thinking about our current and future metaverse stakeholders and are continuously striving to give them the best experience possible,” said Dorian Banks, Chief Executive Officer at LGL. “Creating vivid and ultra realistic brand activations in the metaverse is just one of many projects that our team is working on. We are encouraged by the positive feedback to date regarding the Alpha Release of the Pocket Dimension. We look forward to bringing more and more of these initiatives to market,” added Mr. Banks.
The Directors of Looking Glass Labs take responsibility for this announcement.

After years of outsourcing and offshoring manufacturing to countries with cheaper labour and bigger production ecosystems, the U.S. and Europe are on a mission to bring some of that industrial work back to its own shores. Robco, a Munich-based startup that has built a platform for designing low-cost modular robots for small and medium industrial businesses, has picked up €13 million (abut $13.8 million). The round — a Series A — is led by Sequoia, with Kindred Capital, Promus Ventures and Torsten Reil, Christian Reber, and Daniel Dines all also investing.
British nurses will go on strike this week, hitting already stretched hospitals and cranking up pressure on Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to quell the biggest wave of industrial action to hit the country in decades. But the government has so far refused to budge on pay and is instead looking to tighten laws to stop some strikes, meaning there is no end in sight for what has been dubbed a new "winter of discontent" in reference to the industrial battles that gripped Britain in 1978-79. "There's the potential for them to stretch out and (for striking workers to) dig themselves in and then that could really be something that we haven't seen for quite a long time," she said.
Microsoft will buy LSEG shares from the Blackstone/Thomson Reuters Consortium, the bourse operator said.

Britain has faced industrial action across a range of industries over the last few months as workers struggling with double-digit inflation resort to walk outs to demand better pay and working conditions. While the threat of widespread industrial unrest in the run up to Christmas and into January remains as some of the biggest disputes, including those involving railway workers and nurses, are ongoing, pay agreements have been reached in some areas.
Shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk said on Monday it had appointed Vincent Clerc, who has been with the firm for 25 years, to replace Soren Skou as Chief Executive Officer as of Jan 1.

"With an increasingly challenging outlook, the board believes Vincent holds the right experience and capabilities as CEO to pursue and oversee Maersk’s strategic and organizational development in the years to come," he added.
LONDON (Reuters) -Britain's economy rebounded in October a little more strongly than expected from September when output was affected by a one-off public holiday to mark the funeral of Queen Elizabeth, but a recession remained on the cards, official data showed on Monday. Gross domestic product grew by 0.5% in October after September's 0.6% contraction, the Office for National Statistics said. Despite the slight upside surprise, the figures are unlikely to change the view among investors and analysts that Britain's economy faces a bleak 2023.
The Office for National Statistics said gross domestic product grew by 0.5% in October in a bounce back from a 0.6% contraction the previous month.

GDP figures showing the UK economy expanded 0.5% in October today launched a packed week for economic announcements. The rebound from the previous month’s fall of 0.6% is unlikely to allay the UK’s recession fears, with the Office for National Statistics pointing out the economy contracted over the last three months as a whole. Meanwhile, it emerged today that Microsoft is to buy a 4% stake in London Stock Exchange as part of a 10-year strategic partnership for next-generation data and analytics and cloud infrastructure solutions.
