THE METAVERSE: Its impact on different industries.

The metaverse is a fairly new concept used to describe a persistent, entirely online 3D universe consisting of multiple virtual spaces. One can think of it as a future iteration of the internet as a single virtual world or as a way of social interaction within the 3D virtual space. The metaverse is thought to be a place where users can work, meet, play, or socialize with one another without needing to be within the same physical space to conduct such activities. Although it is not yet completely implemented or existing as a full entity, the current multiplayer video games can provide the closest experience to what a metaverse may have to offer.

Founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg has recently brought to the attention of the media the possibilities that this entire virtual world called the metaverse could provide. Strongly believing that this could be the future of our online experience and of his trillion-dollar company, he is investing time and resources into the implementation of his ideas of the metaverse. However, as senior vice president of Intel Raja Koduri said in December 2021, “truly persistent and immersive computing, at scale and accessible to billions of humans in real-time, will require a 1,000-times increase in computational efficiency from today’s state of the art.” So, whether a fully immersive metaverse will be ours or just for future generations to experience is not yet clear.
