We are thrilled to FINALLY let the cat out of the bag on quite possibly one of the most exciting partnerships that we could kick off 2022 with!
We are the official partners of Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN into the metaverse.
This partnership officially kicks off by putting an interactive and 3D version of the 2022 car directly into the hands of fans using the JigSpace platform and our new WebAR viewer. Now, viewing Jigs is a universal, frictionless experience, enabled by the groundbreaking use of Apple's App Clips, and WebAR.
This really is a massive step forward in bringing our vision of ‘Jigs Everywhere’ to life. Formula 1 fans will be able to get up close to learn about the innovation and design of the Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN car with a 3D, immersive experience. The resolution and details are astonishing and we are so proud of what the team have been able to achieve.
Jigs can be viewed on the device in anyone’s pocket, with no need to download an app. It’s kind of like PDF, you can access and interact with it from anywhere, and that level of coverage is our goal for sharing knowledge anywhere!
A very cool addition to the release of the car into the metaverse is the release of camouflage edition merch by Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN’s team wear partner, CODE-ZERO. The “camo collection” is available now on Code Zero Racing and includes the below QR code which gives fans the JigSpace interactive experience of the new C42 car, anytime and anywhere.

The launch of our WebAR viewer brings the power and accessibility of Jigs that are previously unseen.
What is a WebAR Viewer?
The most contextual way to view 3D content is in Augmented Reality. Directly from within a web browser, you can easily view something in AR, without having to download an app or software platform.
The JigSpace WebAR viewer saves time by eliminating the need to re-embed 3D content every time there’s a product update, spec change, or modification. Once your Jig is embedded, you can continue to update it without changing any code.
We are still putting the finishing touches on this HUGE update to roll out for use with all our Jigs. But you can get excited about the massive opportunities this presents, and see just how accessible this is going viewing content in the metaverse by checking out the Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN car here.
What are Apple App Clips?
App Clips are small in size - under 10MB - launching within seconds. This removes the need for you to either find the correct app on your iPhone or download it from the App Store.
App Clips are fast and lightweight so you can open them quickly. Whether you’re ordering take-out from a restaurant, renting a scooter, or viewing a Jig for the first time, you will be able to start and finish an experience from your app in seconds.
We are super excited about what this partnership means for 2022 and beyond. It certainly turbocharges our ability to put Jigs into the hands of millions of people around the globe and brings us closer to being the default way people view and share knowledge in 3D.
