Instead of owning a static jpeg or (animated) gif that will end up on your harddisk or in your private cloud,
why not consider buying an #augmentedreality NFT you can actually use and
wear? Thereby showcasing your purchase and promoting it, if you consider a resale.
New experiment: I'm selling my latest NFT as an ongoing "work in progress" prototype.
With each doubling of the price on the secondary market, I'll enhance this interactive #augmentedreality prototype with a new feature.
The reason behind this try-out?
Being a creator of scripted #digitalfashion I'm wondering what to do with the aspect that my #NFTs are programmed entities.
Software has a lifecycle, it might require an update one day. Should future upgrades of the NFT code be the responsibility of the artist/creator? A development team might not exist forever.
Another way to ask that question is: should this kind of NFT be sold including its source code? Probably not. It's not what buyers (should) want. And when selling documented code, would significant changes to the unique NFT be allowed?
If neither option works, and using an automated software update process that would be guaranteed to work forever doesn't exist, what to do?
Would a written promise of future manual updates be convincing enough? Then this would become an ordinary software development process, with a feature list and a price indication.
Let's try something speculative. An NFT which will gain more functions along the way, it might increase in value, but the risk of discontinuation will be spread across the serial owners of this new piece.
This "Collective collectible 01" is a shared augmented reality outfit. Shared with the whole world, because the AR effect is openly available. But why purchase something that anyone can wear? The value of this outfit will increase the more people wear it, as it's obtrusively communicating that it's for sale.
And is there another benefit of becoming the owner of a piece of this shared creation? Yes, only the 5 owners of the 5 elements can control how this piece of virtual clothing looks on everyone anywhere 'wearing' it by
uploading a texture on the part they own.
When unlocking this filter, an interactive beachballing facemask will be projected on you. Whether that's representing frustration about the cumbersome procedure to unlock this content, or whether it symbolizes you patiently waiting for this NFT to increase in value, that's up to you to decide.
The unlock mechanism is included to deal with the fact that these AR effects residing on public platforms. They need to be, because facefilter effects or digital fashion needs to be accessible by anyone, standing in front of you looking at you through their AR glasses. Thanks to the unlock pattern mechanism and the dynamically generated codes, you can reveal the effect to others but you can still remain the unique owner of this piece of AR content.
Part of the "Gamify yourself" collection, which will be a set of five NFT facefilter games which are designed based on one specific condition: instead of using the head detection to turn the player into a substitute mouse or gamepad controlling another game element, in these facefilter games the player is an integral part of the gameplay.
