THE METAVERSE - AN INTRODUCTION
From Wikipedia,the free encyclopedia
In futurism and science fiction, the metaverse is a hypothetical iteration of the internet as a single,universal and immersive virtual world that is facilitated by the use of virtual reality viewers and the traditional use of desktop and laptop.
In common use, it is a metaverse network of 3D worlds focused on social connection and reality.
The term metaverse originated in the 1992 science fiction novel Snow Crash as a meta or universe.
Metaverse development is often linked to advancing virtual reality technology due to increasing demands for immersion.
Recent interest in metaverse development is influenced by WEB3, a concept for a decentralized iteration of the internet.
WEB3 and the Metaverse have been used as buzzwords to exaggerate development progress of various related technologies and projects for public relations purposes.
Information privacy,user addiction, and user safety are concerns within the metaverse, stemming from challenges facing social media and gaming industries as a whole.
