Meta Vers: It May Seem Like A Big Invention, But What Is It And How Can It Change Our Lives?
Experts and analysts say that the second major invention by technology companies will be Metavers, which is still a matter of debate.
The concept is attracting the attention and resources of technology giants such as Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Tim Sweeney of Epic Games.
What is Meta Versus?
Some people think that Metavers is the future of the Internet, while for the general public it may just be a better version of virtual reality.
It is seen as a virtual reality and the idea is that it can make as much difference as the low-end mobile phones of the 1980s and the smartphones of today.
After this new invention, instead of using a computer, you will have to use a headset to go into the virtual world of Metavers and this will allow you to stay in touch with all digital environments.
Unlike virtual reality, which is currently used for most gaming, the virtual world can be practically used for anything like work, games, concerts, cinema and gossiping outside.
Most people think that you will be able to get a 3D avatar that will represent you, that is, the way you want to use it.
Because this is just a concept, no single definitive definition of meteors has been agreed upon.
How did it suddenly become such a big thing?
The digital world and augmented reality are discussed every few years. But after that it usually ends without any result.
But wealthy investors and big technology companies are excited about Metavers and no one wants to be left behind if it becomes the future of the Internet.
In addition, it is realized that for the first time, technology has almost reached there. Virtual reality gaming and connectivity are probably getting to the point where it is needed.
Why does it include Facebook?
Facebook has made the development of Metavers one of its top priorities. It has invested heavily in virtual reality through its Oculus headsets, and some analysts believe it has made it so cheap compared to its competitors that they may even be at a loss.
The company is also developing virtual reality apps for workplaces and social interactions, including apps that interact with the real world.
But Facebook, which has bought several rivals in the past, claims that Metavers “will not be built overnight by a single company.” It has also promised to cooperate with other companies.
Facebook recently provided 50 million in funding to nonprofit groups to contribute to ‘responsibly preparing meteors’.
But the company estimates that Metavers will take another 10 to 15 years to become a reality.
Who else is interested in Metavers?
Mr Sweeney, head of Apex Games, the maker of the popular video game Fort Knight, has long talked about his ambitions for Metavers.
Online multiplayer games have been providing players with the opportunity to play in a shared world for decades. These are not meteors, but some of the concepts in them are similar.
In recent years, Fort Knight has expanded its product line and hosted concerts, brand events and more in its digital world. The possibilities that emerged from it impressed many, and Sweeney’s vision of meteors became popular.
In addition, other games are coming closer to the concept of Metavers. Roblox, for example, is a platform that allows thousands of individual games to connect to a larger ecosystem.
In the meantime, Unity is investing in a digital development platform called ‘Digital Twins’ which will be digital copies of the real world. On the other hand, the well — known graphics card maker Envidia is building its ‘Omni Versus’, which it says will be a platform to connect virtual, 3D worlds.
So is it just about games?
Although there are many theories as to what would happen to Metavers, most of them are based on human relationships.
Facebook, for example, is experimenting with virtual reality meetings through its workplace app and social platforms called Horizons. Both use their virtual avatar systems.
Another app, VR Chat, focuses on online meetings and chats, and its purpose is nothing more than to experience different environments and meet people. There may be other apps we don’t know about yet.
Sweeney recently told the Washington Post that he envisions a world where you (in virtual reality) can see for yourself a new model of a car company.
Maybe when you are shopping online, you can try digital clothes yourself first and order them when you are satisfied.
Does it have the technology?
Virtual reality has grown exponentially in recent years, and high-end headsets can deceive the human eye into 3D viewing.
In addition, it is making its place in ordinary lives. The Oculus Quest 2 VR headset used for gaming was a popular Christmas gift in 2020.
The growing interest in non-fungible tokens (NFTs), a reliable way to determine the ownership of digital assets, also hints at how the virtual economy will work.
And the more developed digital world will need a more reliable mobile Internet that could be made possible with the advent of 5G.
Everything is in its infancy right now. The evolution of Metavers (if any) will continue to cause competition between major technology companies for the next decade or so.
