PAGCOR’s Vice President for Community Relations and Services Group Ramon Stephen Villaflor said the state-run gaming agency alone already distributed 3,000 food and non-food items to Dingalan, Aurora; Marikina; and General Tinio and San Isidro in Nueva Ecija.

Meanwhile, the most recent donation came from Widus Foundation, Inc., (WFI) the charitable arm of Widus Hotel and Casino Clark. The Foundation distributed 1,000 packs of food and non-food items to heavily affected residents in San Antonio, Nueva Ecija on October 12, 2022 and 1,500 packs to those in Aurora Province on October 14, 2022.

WFI Manager Ronnel Golimlim said they worked closely with PAGCOR and LGUs to deliver the goods immediately to the typhoon victims.

“Kitang-kita sa mga mukha ng mga tao ang tuwa at talaga namang nakakalambot ng puso na marinig sa kanila na ‘yung kanilang natanggap ay good for three days. Dito natin nakita ang success na dala ng private-public partnership since we’ve been working together hand in hand  with the LGUs, PAGCOR, Widus and everyone else,” he said.

Barangay Official Mirna Santos said many houses in the town of San Antonio were wrecked by the strong winds brought by the typhoon. They were grateful that immediate help was given to affected families.

“Nagpapasalamat po kami dahil po itong dumating na tulong ay talagang kinakailangan ng mga mamamayan namin dito sa San Antonio. Kitang-kita sa mga mga kababayan natin dito na talagang gumaan ang loob nila dahil sa oras ng sakuna ay may mga organisasyon na gaya ng PAGCOR at Widus na handang tumulong sa mga naapektuhan,” Santos expressed.

Another casino licensee that conducted relief efforts operations for Karding victims was the Stotsenberg Leisure Park and Hotel Corporation. Its charitable arm Stotsenberg Foundation, Inc. donated 2,000 food packs worth P500,000 to affected locals in Victoria, Tarlac and Cabangan, Zambales.

PAGCOR mandates its casino licensees to establish Foundations to help fund Corporate Social Responsibility programs related to education, infrastructure, health facilities, environmental preservation and restoration of cultural heritage.

Kinetix launches world first user-generated AI-powered Emotes for gaming & metaverse

Kinetix launches world first user-generated AI-powered Emotes for gaming & metaverse
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Kinetix, a pioneering 3D animation and AI tech startup, today proudly launches its revolutionary user-generated emotes for video games and virtual worlds, signifying a vital first step towards true self-expression in gaming and the metaverse.

The Kinetix generative AI-powered platform and no-code editing tools enable users, creators, video game makers, metaverse platforms, and brands to create and edit animated 3D content in seconds. This democratizes the process of creating custom 3D animated content, extending to millions of people a skill set that was previously limited to a few thousand trained artists and animators.

Today, Kinetix launches the first ever user-generated emotes to tackle the challenge of limited self-expression in gaming and metaverse worlds. Emotes are animations that can express emotion in video games and virtual worlds, such as dances, celebrations and gestures. Uniquely, emotes made with Kinetix can work in any avatar-based video game or metaverse, and fit effortlessly into any virtual environment from hyper-realism to voxel blocky worlds.

Yassine Tahi, CEO and Co-founder of Kinetix, commented:

“We want to champion a new standard for self-expression in video games and metaverse worlds by opening up the creation of emotes. Our emotes are live now for anyone to create, marking a true watershed moment for digital self-expression and our mission to humanize the metaverse.”

He added, “A once in a lifetime concert without dancing, or a drag queen show without ‘Death Drop’ are missed opportunities for self-expression, realism, individuality, and human connection. We invite everyone to embrace this new trend by playing with our easy-to-use, no-code platform and trying out their best moves on their favorite character or avatar.”

Creators can own their emotes by taking up the option to ‘mint’ them on the Kinetix platform: transforming them into digital assets called ‘Emote NFTs’. With the Kinetix marketplace, creators can then promote and monetize their work and receive 95% of the sale price, creating a fairer revenue model. Brands and IP owners can also use Kinetix tech to make custom emotes. In November 2022, Kinetix teamed up with TF1 and BBC Studios to launch an exclusive collection for international TV hit ‘Dancing With The Stars’.

Founded in Paris in 2020 by CEO Yassine Tahi and CTO Henri Mirande, Kinetix has a team of 45 and was recently named by WIRED as one of the hottest startups in Paris. Earlier this year, Kinetix raised $11 million in seed funding in a round led by Adam Ghobarah, founder of Top Harvest Capital, with participation from Sparkle Ventures, and multiple virtual world platforms and successful entrepreneurs. Kinetix already has established partnerships with leading and emerging virtual worlds including Roblox, The Sandbox, ZEPETO, Decentraland, and PolyLand.
