Metaverse is the next big thing in the internet revolution. Meta (formerly Facebook), Microsoft, Nvidia and Amazon, among others, are betting billions of dollars on building it. Smaller companies develop applications to ride on it.
The metaverse is a virtual world where people can experience different locations without actually being there and interacting with other people face to face, without actually meeting them. It’s going to be a big trend, and we have barely scratched the surface in terms of understanding how we can more ritually interact through virtual reality with each other on the next-generation internet.
The applications and opportunities are enormous for everyone. Companies can hold virtual meetings with 3-D avatars. People can travel to faraway destinations, visit museums, take virtual classes, play games and try new merchandise. The metaverse is bigger than just virtual worlds for people to play in, or companies to market and rebrand themselves.
