By metaverse, you can imagine a digital world at your fingertips that you can visit without having to leave home. Or attend a business meeting and participate as your avatar. Or go on a road trip with your friends and have some exciting adventures without worrying if something will happen to you in the wild. Let’s take a closer look.
What the metaverse has to offer
Metaverse will allow us to have the benefits of a social yet digital environment, also creating experiences, but you won’t have to travel. This will make the metaverse completely immersive. You will experience a lot of fun from the comfort of your own home. Shopping will no longer be exhausting and you won’t have to walk around the store for hours, but you can buy the things you like easily online and, most importantly, safely. It’s also quite possible that jobs will enter the metaverse. So meetings can take place in the metaverse.
How it works?
Many people think of the metaverse as a virtual world from science fiction stories. One of the most immersive and depicted is in the movie “Ready Player One”. What the metaverse will actually look like is uncertain, but we know for sure that it spans virtual and physical worlds. It also centers around a functional economy. Traveling to different locations within the same digital universe will be relatively easy, as will keeping your purchased items and custom avatars.
Digital fashion, art and other things
You may already be familiar with the art shows at Decentraland. But it doesn’t have to be purely digital art that gets transferred to the metaverse. Even fashion brands have found potential in the metaverse and are creating digital copies of physical models. Thus, physical models may suffer no damage and look beautiful for a long time, but in the metaverse they can adorn many avatars and come to no harm. Another big attraction is the game world. How would you like to go on an adventurous quest with your friends and not have to think about whether you have packed everything you need in your suitcase? The metaverse has all this to offer and there will be much more to come.
How serious is this topic?
It must be pointed out that a definite pandemic has pushed this digitalisation forward rapidly. Companies that have seen that people are interested in online sales have moved swiftly into the digital environment. At the moment, many companies are already investing in the metaverse and as proof that they are serious, they are regularly holding auctions, sales and testing in the metaverse. These are big brands. The former Facebook even changed its name to Meta. So many companies see the potential.
The Metaverse has a lot in store for us to get excited about. It is quite possible that in the future each of us will spend some time in the metaverse daily for various purposes.
