One of the most discussed topics these days is the one about Metaverse – what does it mean, how does it work, etc. The simplest answer is a powerful mixture of many different technology elements with the most noticeable video augmented reality and virtual reality.
Now every company living in the digital world such as Facebook, wants to own their own metaverse or at least their combination of tech elements that makes our life much easier.
The term was coined in 1992 in Neal Stephenson’s book called “Snow Cash”. The author detailed different kinds of lifelike avatars in various VR environments. Since the release of the book, many technological developments led to the creation of the very first real-life metaverse. Now Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are popularizing the term trying to change our lives for the better.
The real-life metaverse is a virtual world mixture of video communication technologies, virtual and augmented reality technologies, and 3D avatars. Thanks to emerging technologies that directly contribute to Zuckerberg’s metaverse, the metaverse of the future will allow us to coexist in an alternative, hyper-real world.
Nowadays metaverse can be seen in the gaming sector – video games such as Minecraft, Fortnite, and Roblox for example, have created their own gaming universe relying on the most advanced AR, VR, and other technologies. The metaverse will definitely impact the way people gamble online. It will also affect the iGaming industry too.
If Mark’s Metaverse comes to life, online casino players, for example, will be playing in virtual environments. His Metaverse plan will change the way we communicate to each other, educate, work and entertain.
Recently, in an interview, Mark Zuckerberg revealed that he is planning to transform Meta (à.k.a Facebook) into a bigger social media platform with different social apps connected.
According to Zuckerberg, there are millions of people who already live in his Metaverse of the one Facebook offers. In his opinion, many people want to inhabit an alternative virtual world that he aims to create. He believes this is the next step of the major Internet revolution and some experts agree.
Mark said metaverse will be a virtual place for everybody who wants to experience things online. Mark’s Metaverse will include different virtual reality layers alongside other emerging technologies such as 3D holograms.
