We keep asking ourselves what the Metaverse is. But honestly, you already know most of it, and it will be everything you want.
The Metaverse includes technology such as online meetings, gaming, cryptocurrency, email, virtual reality, social networking, and even streaming services – it’s everything in your digital life, or it could be soon.
As you might create a word processing file in Microsoft Word and then share it through Google’s Gmail account, items in the metaverses could move across ecosystems of different companies’ apps, hold their values, and perform functions. An item purchased as a non-finite token (NFT), or something that cannot be duplicated, from company A, for example, could be displayed on the virtual walls of houses in a world created by company B.
The Past Will Build The Metaverse
In the past, people used to create written documents. They typed them out by hand; they wrote them down by hand and printed them off. But times change, and so do technologies. Today we can create documents digitally. We can type them out on our computers, write them down on paper, and print them off. And thanks to technology, we can also share these documents with others.
So why not try creating your document online? Why not go ahead and make yourself an online profile? Why not create a website where you can showcase your skills and talents?
It’s A Digital Society, Duh
For one thing, the idea of a metaverse society is an oxymoron because it implies a unity that doesn’t exist. In addition, we’re talking about something that hasn’t happened yet. We’ve got a lot of intelligent people working hard to make it happen, but they haven’t succeeded yet. And even if they grow, it won’t necessarily mean that everyone will live happily ever after.
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg took to social media to announce his company’s plans to release a virtual reality (VR) app called Oculus Go. He shared an image of himself wearing a pair of goggles, along with a photo of him standing next to a cardboard box containing a prototype of the device.
Your Metaverse, Your Way
In the post, Zuckerberg wrote that the new Oculus Go would allow users to take photos and videos inside the virtual world and share them through the social network. The announcement comes after Facebook acquired Oculus VR for $2 billion last year. A former employee told Bloomberg News that the acquisition had demoralized employees because they felt that Facebook didn’t understand what they did. “We’re trying to build something that we believe in,” said the source, who asked not to be named. “They just don’t get it.”
A new technology called VR could transform how we live our lives by giving us access to an entirely different world. The Metaverse will eventually be everything you want it to be.
