What is Metaverse?
The metaverse is the name of the upcoming iteration of the internet. Just ask the formerly operated as Facebook, which changed its name to Meta in 2021 after CEO Mark Zuckerberg declared the social networking service has aspirations to become a “metaverse company”, shortly Meta. That’s okay with all the new tech buzzwords! But what is the metaverse, exactly? Well, we got you covered!
What is Metaverse?
The metaverse is a system of interconnected, realistic virtual worlds where users can interact with one another, make and play games, work, and shop. The metaverse can be compared to cyberspace or an advanced, three-dimensional internet where logging in is not required. It has more use cases well beyond gaming. It might also include aspects of augmented and virtual reality.
At its most basic, the metaverse will have three features:
- A Sense Of Immersion: Virtually where users will almost live a second life in the virtual world with their desired avatar!
- Real-Time Interactivity: Though we have phones and whatsapp and other video call sessions, metaverse offers a still more real time virtual interaction.
- User Agency: A metaverse user agency is a company that creates a platform for people to interact with each other.
Here is a list of metaverse examples that are in use at the moment.
- Meta Horizon
- Second Life
- The Sandbox
How Does the Metaverse Work?
Theoretically, the metaverse functions by enabling an infinite number of individuals to synchronously connect with one another in real time inside a constantly active virtual setting that is immersive, three-dimensional, and connected in a seamless manner to our physical reality.
Challenges In Metaverse Implementation
- In practice, it’s a challenging technological achievement to pull off. Such an endeavor calls for significant computer processing power as well as improvements in smartphone, game console, and VR and AR headset technology.
- Considerable coordination and cooperation between many businesses would be necessary for a unified, interoperable metaverse, one that would allow users to transport their identities and digital valuables across platforms held by different companies and user agencies.
Apart from the challenges, the global market for Metaverse is expected to be worth $47.48 billion in 2022 and has a strong CAGR of 39.44%. The value is anticipated to increase to $678.80 billion by 2030. So, metaverse can be the next internet thing that would completely haunt us in a good way like how our smartphones are our daily life.
