London-based deep tech startup, Anything World lets creators build a 3D world using their voice. It uses Artificial Intelligence, natural language understanding, computer vision and an extensive 3D library. With these, users can request, see, manipulate and experience anything that they think of.
Secures €552.5K funding
Now, Anything World has raised £500K (nearly €552.5K) pre-seed funding led by Warner Music’s Boost Fund. Back in 2019, the team joined both Ubisoft’s AI accelerator at Station F and the Techstars London programme. Warner Music believes that Anything World’s 3D content creation can be potentially transformative both for music-driven experiences and well beyond.
“I’m excited about the power that their technology allows within the immersive space – it creates exciting new opportunities for our artists to express their creativity and engage with their fans through 3D worlds and objects,” says Oana Ruxandra, EVP Business Development and Chief Digital Officer, Warner Music Group.
Launches first public beta!
Besides the pre-seed funding round, Anything World has announced the launch of the first public beta version of its deep tech platform, which lets creators make 3D worlds using their voice. As per the company, this is the fastest way to make limitless AI-driven 3D voice experiences. The beta launch took place last week.
Currently, the Anything World platform is available in Unity and will be coming to other games engines in the near future. It is a no-code-if-you-don’t-want-to-code developer tool for Unity to create limitless experiences.

What does Anything World do?
Instead of commissioning artists to model and animate a restrictive set of models, 3D assets of any kind can be requested from Anything World’s cloud platform at any time with natural behaviours already applied.
It allows users to use 3D libraries from Google Poly, Sketchfab & more, with animations and behaviours added by the platform. It also allows users to integrate voice and text commands.
The company believes that the potential for such a machine learning driven 3D platform is enormous. Apart from the games development industry, the company claims that its platform can have applications in sectors such as education, retail, marketing, social, and music.
Anything World claims to already work with Ubisoft, Warner Music, Techstars, Instagram, Facebook, Nexus Studios, Preloaded, Rehab, Choice Provisions, among others.
