Here’s a first-look overview of our next innovation. Something amazing happened in the world of technology and digitizing old photo content, we realized something was missing.

We started way back in 1990, owning retail photo labs. Today, we announce the next “new-new thing” and why we modernized the website with a complete redesign.

Digitize your grandparents’ photos to go “back to the future.” is going all into the metaverse–digitizing old photo content to share–using virtual reality photo sharing of your nostalgia. People want to watch their photo history in a VR world, not their recent camera roll content (the food they ate last night).

The all-new website story.

Excerpt by product writer & reviewer at @WIRED, Eric (@LordRavenscraft) Ravenscraft:

“What Is the Metaverse, Exactly? Everything you never wanted to know about the future of talking about the future. Broadly speaking, the technologies that make up the metaverse can include virtual reality—characterized by persistent virtual worlds that continue to exist even when you’re not playing—as well as augmented reality that combines aspects of the digital and physical worlds. However, it doesn’t require that those spaces be exclusively accessed via VR or AR. A virtual world, like aspects of Fortnite that can be accessed through PCs, game consoles, and even phones, could be metaversal.”

ScanMyPhotos’ version of the metaverse is called “the photoverse” as an immersive virtual reality digitization experience.

Immersive experience. Using old photos, music, news clips, and multimedia experiences to go back to the future.
The future of the metaverse will embody one of two themes.

After how Facebook veered from a fun way to chat with friends into a dangerous communications hazard, great care is needed to keep the metaverse safe and not harmful.

Because many are wary and circumspect of the metaverse, ScanMyPhotos is designing a new strategy called “the photoverse.” The goal is to become more like the movie “Back to the Future” and not the anthology television series, “The Twilight Zone.”

What happened with Facebook, which began as a fun social media tool, must not happen with the metaverse’s emerging technology.

As a content provider for the metaverse, ScanMyPhotos is being cautious. We want our photoverse immersive virtual reality digitization experience to never be described as the opening narration from The Twilight Zone: “This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.”
