A short history of METAVERSE SCHOOL GmbH

In the first quarter of 2017 Dieter Heyne founded the METAVERSE SCHOOL GmbH with the vision to develop a virtual world, which connects to every aspect of our daily life.

The idea to create a virtual world arose around 2011 from Dieter´s observation that the established virtual worlds had to struggle with very specific problems, like complicated usability and an elaborate process to get started. A first step was taken by planning, structuring and programming the basics of a new platform.

The next milestone was the go-live in 2013 of the browser-based experimental cybaLOUNGE platform for developers and enthusiasts of virtual worlds. Over time the functionalities and the possibilities of the platform grew and in the beginning of 2018 Dieter Heyne decided to fulfil his vision of an open virtual world, where everything is possible. Consequently, Dieter Heyne made up his mind to build up a team and a working solution for a virtual world. Now we are in the process of further developing and designing an interesting virtual environment and we are looking forward to develop our products, so that everyone can participate in a new, exciting, virtual adventure.

The present – what we are doing now

So far, we spend a lot of time to set up the various basic requirements for such an enormous project like a virtual environment. We set up a homepage, wrote user guides, worked on models for the platform, removed bugs, implemented new features, developed the first products, etc. Also, we initiated projects with the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt, to get new ideas and input about the user experience, the graphic design of the virtual environments and how to transform day to day processes into a virtual world.

The future – what we intend to do

In the near future we have three big goals. First to get the platform fit for a wide public audience, second to produce content and third to develop products, which promote the digitalization of everyday processes.

Join us on the cybaLOUNGE platform and be a part of an exciting journey!
