Virtual reality home on Mars sells for AED1.8 million

Yes, that headline is correct – a virtual reality NFT home on Mars has been sold for AED1.8 million, the latest sign that the world is going crazy.

The Mars House was sold as an NFT, a non-fungible token market, which essentially lets you buy online items including Tweets.

The digital owner of the Mars House will be able to explore the open-plan mansion using virtual reality. Or you could look at the video below for free whenever you want.

Toronto designer Krista Kim described her creation as a “light sculpture” with every room featuring clear walls. After all, when you’re on an alien planet, who needs privacy?

Outside you’ll find the terrace with see-through sunbeds, perfect for taking in the toxic Martian atmosphere.

And the lucky buyer also has a digital certificate of ownership protected by blockchain technology. Definitely worth AED1.5 million. Definitely.

Other NFT highlights

The Mars House is only the latest NFT work to make a big news splash.

A digital only work by Beeple was recently bought for $79.4.

And Gucci released a digital only sneaker for $17.99 that could only be worn using virtual and augmented reality.

And then there was the first Tweet by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey which sold for an eye-watering $2,915,835.47. To be fair, he then donated the money to charity, so well done Jack.

The post said: ““just setting up my twttr”.
