Be not afraid.  At least of the coming “metaverses” that are being envisioned, says Paul Powers, founder and chief executive officers of the software maker PhysNa of Columbus, Ohio.

“We’re at the precipice of a new era,” says Mr. Powers. “People who can foreseee that … can act on it now.”

His company has written programs that help find objects not by words, such as a database search, but by their actual seeable characteristics, such as shape. In laymen’s terms, while very useable in a two-dimension world, it could become the Google of the three-dimensional metaverse.

Paul Powers joins us for this Bizgnus Interview podcast.

Mr. Powers’ company has also made a free version of its basic programs, which it calls “Thangs.”  In the company’s words, “Thangs gives creators access to powerful search, collaboration and AI-powered predictive tools that have never been available before in the world of 3D data.”

Mr. Powers says he is passionate about the next generation of immersive technology that breaks down the barriers between the physical and digital worlds.

In 2019, he was recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of the brightest young entrepreneurs in the United States in the Forbes 30 Under 30. Mr. Powers has presented on the TED Talk stage and at several tech startup conferences like StartUp Grind, ConX19, and Startup of the Year at SXSW.
