United States 3D-printing firm Arevo, Inc. has partnered with Animoca Brands to produce a line of custom carbon fiber bikes inspired by and decorated with individually owned non-fungible token (NFT) artwork.

As one of the central players in Web3, Animoca Brands’ partnership with Arevo represents a significant step toward connecting the “matterverse” to the “metaverse,” linking unique digital goods with unique physical goods, Animoca Brands said in a statement on Monday.

According to the statement, Arevo x Animoca Brands NFT-validated carbon fiber bikes are expected to be unveiled in the first quarter of 2023.

It said future product releases will marry Arevo’s ability to enable mass customization of high-end carbon fiber products with NFT-validated artwork from various communities of artists and owners.

“Arevo’s groundbreaking carbon fiber 3D printing technology is a peek at the structure of the open metaverse that Animoca Brands is championing – a Web3 future in which personalization is routine, digital ownership is ubiquitous, and the wall between physical and virtual goods comes tumbling down,” said Animoca Brands Co-Founder and Executive Chairman Yat Siu.
