Comprehend the Growing Fascination of the Virtual World: Metaverse
As the world bore the brunt of the raging virus, fall down of economies, issues in mental health and job losses, the resilience of the human spirit and internet technology still stands firm to transform and bring a change in the history of forefront innovation. Over the last few years, tech has reshaped and has made us adaptable to the new normal in different fields of real-life experiences like education, office, social interaction, and others.
With the internet technology being transformed and offering contrasting opportunities to its users the next iteration of the internet is Metaverse. As the word suggests Metaverse is formed by the combination of two words ‘Meta’ and ‘Verse’ which was earlier coined by author Neal Stephenson in the year 1992 for his fiction novel ‘Snow Crash’. The notion of using metaverse in a fiction novel included the concept of joining metal and universe in one and talking about meeting life-like avatars in virtual reality. Metaverse is also considered a natural evolution of our digital and social interactions.
With the advancement of technology in the 20th century, everyone has the opportunity to grab their phone and manage their routine life. For example, a person manages his daily life by opening an app to order groceries, getting ready to attend an office meeting, booking a cab to travel to the office. With metaverse, the experience is said to be increased as it strives to do so. For example, the same person can order groceries from a third dimension, can get ready for a meeting in the office, can book a cab with his/her colleague, and can travel with each other with the power of the third dimension.
