What is My House
The My House world map is a space-decorating experience that ZEPETO is supporting for the first time. Users can customize the arrangement of furniture and home appliances, but they can also personalize the tone and manner of the space itself. This takes the metaverse experience and its value a step further by sparking users’ imagination and encouraging creativity.
“Since home appliances tend to be big, it’s difficult to actually try placing them in users’ own spaces. But now, users can not only imagine their own unique spaces through My House, they can also freely decorate their dream homes,” said Youngwoong Kwon of Samsung Electronics’ Global Marketing Center. “Users will be able to have the special experience of gaining a deeper understanding of their preferences and customizing their spaces.”
