For decades developers have set out to create the most immersive and socially interactive virtual experience possible. Social media, video games and the internet have changed the way that we communicate with each other, allowing people to build relationships with individuals from all over the world by simply logging onto their computer. Interest in virtual worlds and virtual reality, or “VR”, continues to grow as more and more people realise the endless possibilities that the future holds for this technology. This brings us to the METAVERSE.
What is the Metaverse?
To an outsider It may just seem like virtual reality on steroids but many people, including big names like Mark Zuckerberg, believe that the Metaverse has a bright future. On the 28th of October 2021 Zuckerberg, CEO of the company Facebook, announced the rebranding of his company and revealed the new name “Meta”. The CEO described his plans to build the “Metaverse” referring to it as “the next evolution of social connection”. The word Metaverse is a combination of the prefix “meta” which can mean “transcending” or “beyond”, and the word “Universe” making the literal meaning of the word “beyond the universe”. The Metaverse is essentially a 3D virtual world in which users can earn, play, interact and own digital assets such as digital land and clothing.
