What is the Metaverse?

There are many brands that take full advantage of the gaming side of the metaverse with branded experiences, which are essentially virtual and immersive sponsorships. However, the immersive metaverse environment is not only a consumer-centric business opportunity.  It is a combination of many elements of technology, including virtual reality, augmented reality and video, in which users “live” in the digital universe.
   
Defenders of the metaverse imagine that its users work, play and stay in touch with friends in everything from concerts and conferences to virtual travel around the world. Whether it's virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), or just a screen, the metaverse promises to bring our digital and physical lives more convergence in wealth, socialization, productivity, shopping and entertainment. The Metaverse experience gives us the ability to play, work, communicate, or buy (and to make things even more fun, the things we buy can be real or virtual). Simply put, the metaverse includes any digital experience on the Internet that is permanent, immersive, three-dimensional (3D), and virtual, such as not taking place in the physical world.
   
Generally speaking, the technology that constitutes the meta-universe can include virtual reality, which is characterized by a persistent virtual world that still exists even when you are not playing, and augmented reality that combines various aspects of the digital and physical world. Virtual worlds, such as Fortnite, which can be accessed through PCs, game consoles, and even mobile phones, can be meta-versioned. Moreover, in the most idealized meta-universe view, it is interoperable, allowing virtual objects such as clothes or cars to be transported from one platform to another. Not only can individual consumers use it to bring their favorite parks or other physical locations into the Metaverse, but they can also allow companies such as theme parks to use their physical products and create their digital twins in the Metaverse.
   
If Matterport can expand that capability with success in the metaverse, this company could be a life-changing investment. It is unlikely that a large company will find itself in the center of the metaverse; A more realistic idea would be that millions of users create their own lives. Essentially, no company will run the metaverse: it will be the "embodied Internet," said Zuckerberg, decentralized by many different actors. The metaverse is a vision that embraces many companies, an entire industry.

   
Simply put, this is a virtual world in which people can communicate, work and play, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg believes that this is the future of the Internet and its trillion-dollar company. The meta-universe is a public collective virtual space created by the fusion of virtual augmented physical reality and physical permanent virtual space [1], which includes the sum of all virtual worlds, augmented reality and the Internet. The term "meta universe" is composed of the prefix "yuan" (meaning external) and the stem "k" (evolved from "universe"); this term is usually used to describe the concept of the future iteration of the Internet, which is connected to the perception of virtual The persistent, shared, three-dimensional virtual space composition in the world.
   
Author Neil Stevenson coined the term "metauniverse" in the 1992 science fiction novel "Avalanche", in which he introduced the realism found in realistic 3D buildings and other virtual reality environments Incarnation. Since then, various developments have paved the way for a true meta-universe, which is a virtual online world, including augmented reality, virtual reality, 3D holographic avatars, videos and other media. On the philosophical level, the meta-universe defined by Zuckerberg and others is a way to integrate our virtual life with our real life.
   
I think a lot of people, when they think of the metaverse, they only think of virtual reality - which I think will be an important part of that. What virtual and augmented reality can do, and what the metaverse as a whole will help people experience, is a sense of presence, which I think is much more natural in the way we are forced to interact. It will take a lot of busy people to create the metaverse we deserve.
   
But there are many big technological challenges [how] to define augmented and virtual reality in this general view of the metaverse. There are the same problems and problems that we have in the spaces of social networks, which today will move to virtual spaces and spaces of the metaverse. We need to see people like me in these roles in front of the public, because you can inspire many more people to come together and say, "Hello, I'm welcome to this metaverse world."
   
I think that the conversation about the metaverse will continue, and at the moment it almost looks like a terminological rationale. In other words, humans are struggling to define what the metaverse is. They believe that the metaverse has benefits for everyone, that it can expand access, opportunity, social media and mental health, although they too must admit that much of what the metaverse can do is still speculative and contingent. from the implementation of equipment to the development of data infrastructure in a very vague time frame.
   
When people talk about the metaverse, they use a term from this novel that represents the metaverse as a certain type of thing, and they try to bring idealism or that idea into a completely different and very disparate set of experiences. But this description is more like the metaverse that we may be familiar with from books like Ready Player One or Snow Crash, or perhaps Fortnite today, where some of the most important aspects of our lives, including our work, are experienced and implemented internally. these virtual spaces.


Since many multiplayer online games with millions of players share functions with the Metaverse, but only provide access to non-permanent instances of virtual worlds used by only a few dozen players, the concept of virtual worlds of the multiverse has been used to distinguish them from the Metaverse. Hints of a metaverse already exist in online gaming universes such as Fortnite, Minecraft, and Roblox. Other observers noted that the Facebook metaverse idea is not new: many other companies such as Roblox, Nvidia and Microsoft have also created virtual worlds using virtual or augmented reality technologies.
   
The metaverse has been a hot topic of conversation lately, as reported by both Facebook and Microsoft. The word “metaverse” often traces back to Neil Stevenson's 1992 dystopian and cyberpunk novel A Snow Catastrophe, and many see recent inspiration in the dazzling maze of experiences underlying Earnest Clines' 2011 novel The First Player at the Ready. New York (CNN Business) The word "metaverse" appears all over the place. Named after the immersive virtual world introduced by Neil Stevenson in his visionary novel Snow Catastrophe, the Metaverse Roadmap (MVR) is the first public ten-year forecast and overview of 3D web technologies, applications, markets and potential social impacts.
