Laundry-MetaverseÖ

The laundry business innovation accelerator to impact brands' growth and success



What is it? Laundry-Metaverse is a cutting-edge suite of digital technologies that combines the physical and digital worlds with the highest practical fidelity.

By integrating lab experimentation in-vitro and in-silico with market-relevant virtual laundry scenarios, Laundry-Metaverse generates immersive realities where time flows differently, empowering teams responsible for building and using laundry technologies to streamline innovation in the laundry business and ensuring brands' growth and success.

It accelerates R&D and marketing innovation, accelerates sustainability, and accelerates access to high technologies, ultimately enabling teams to achieve four specific goals simultaneously:

  1. Change radically the iteration process of product development. Avoid waste of time and resources.

  2. Diminish the environmental footprint of formulations. Brands with less environmental impact using more Biomaterials.

  3. Reach a new balance of materials keeping or improving consumer satisfaction. Enhance product margins.

  4. Discover and support consumer-verifiable brands' claims. Reinforce the brand's mental availability.

How does it happens? It happens because it is a digital space with a consumer-centric approach based on the consumer perception of benefits or non-benefits and the sufficient perceivable benefits of diverse consumers in multifarious real-life market scenarios. So, it aligns with the brand's growth strategy, where perceived performance drives brand choice, purchase and re-repurchase.

It includes the professional web apps Laundry-VR (link), VR-Clicks (link) and VRES-Lab, and is now part of the revolutionary large digital ecosystem named Industrial Metaverse.

Laundry-Metaverse has been progressively developed since 2002 to support comparative tests of brands' performance. The main building blocks of Laundry-Metaverse are the laundry digital twin and the data component. The laundry digital twin component is the chief building block that defines the level of accuracy of digital representations of the real world. The digital twin component is a physic-based generated component built by combining the most modern understanding of fluorescence optical spectroscopy, consumer appearance models, colour reproduction and the web virtual reality. Ultimately, Laundry-VR, VR-Clicks and VRES-Lab offer the highest practical visual fidelity; therefore, the real and virtual worlds are inseparable. This approach is more than just high-quality 3D rendering, like for computer games; the laundry digital twins we build have much more depth.

The data component, on the other hand, quantifies what happens in the digital twin. In that sense, it generates extensive hard data sets to make sound decisions about brand performance, claims and sustainability. New modern web capabilities support it, including modern interactive data visualizations and data analysis with no restrictions on the number of innovators working from any site.
