There has been much hype around metaverse recently, especially after Mark Zuckerberg announced Facebook’s name change and bet their whole business on Metaverse. What exactly is this metaverse?
What is Metaverse?
The concept of the metaverse isn’t new. Essentially, it is a shared virtual reality space where you can interact with other people using your own virtual avatar just like the real world. It is like the internet, but with more emphasis on virtual worlds and augmented reality. Where the latter is a whole new other experience by itself! You could call it internet 3.0 where the key theme is that consumers or anyone with a virtual avatar is in a shared simulated environment.
But that’s not all! The metaverse itself consists of gaming as well! One great example we have partially experienced is from the movie ‘Ready Player One’!
Yes, notice that the movie has the main character, Wade Watts / Parzival, buying items through shopping in the virtual shopping mall but the items are delivered to his house in the real world. He even played games, went for quests in the virtual world, and earned credits that can be used to purchase real-world items, all while wearing a virtual reality headset (VR headset). Currently, in the real world, we already have something similar. It is the Oculus VR headset, the same one that New World Carnival (NWC) uses!
And that won’t be the only similarity you’ll find between the movie and NWC. With the huge interest in metaverse and virtual reality, even gaming companies are getting involved.
Why are we talking about all these and do you want to experience the movie in real life?
