Kawasaki, a Japanese public multinational corporation manufacturer of motorcycles has become the new customer for Microsoft’s industrial metaverse.

Software giant Microsoft Corp (NASDAQ: MSFT) has joined the trend of tech companies seeking to divert their new innovations into the virtual world, hence venturing into the metaverse. The tech giant has unveiled the debut of its Industrial Metaverse, a new technology that allows workers to use Microsoft’s HoloLens headset on the factory floor to overlay digital imagery in a real-world environment.

Microsoft’s new innovation was followed by the company’s concern to combat challenges associated with the supply chain as it offers a mechanism whereby workers on-site can reach out to repair persons through HoloLens in situations where there is a need to repair or fix broken parts in the factory. The repair persons can then chat with the workers and walk them through the repair process with visual cures for augmented reality without the need to have them come over.

Moreso, Microsoft’s Industrial Metaverse allows managers to use its features to ramp up new production if needed.

Kawasaki Acquires Microsoft’s Industrial Metaverse Product

According to a recent report from CNBC, Kawasaki, a Japanese public multinational corporation manufacturer of motorcycles, has become the new customer for Microsoft’s industrial metaverse.

The report unveils that Kawasaki will be utilizing the new Microsoft tech product in its factories to help produce robots.

Furthermore, Kawasaki had also joined forces with  Heinz, which would see it using the Microsoft industrial metaverse in ketchup factories and Boeing as manufacturing partners.

There’s no doubt that the existence of technology has become a very relevant part of human living that cannot be underestimated. It is believed that technology has made the real world very easy and fancy to live in. This apparently triggers the interest of many as to potential tech concepts.

Although the metaverse has not yet been fully implemented, a number of companies are already building on its concept with the public being eager to have a taste of what it proposes. Reports reveal that Microsoft’s customers have been asking for innovation as this, as buzz builds around the metaverse concept.

Microsoft had innovated the new technology in a bid to enable speed and efficiency amongst factory workers and managers while building products. Hence, creating a “digital twin” of a workspace according to the company.

Speaking on the new technology and its impact on companies, Jessica Hawk, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of mixed reality said;

“These are real-world problems that these companies are dealing with … so having a technology solution that can help unblock the supply chain challenge, for example, is incredibly impactful.”
