How Metaverse Will Change Humanity’s Future?
Metaverse is a concept that is defined as the future of the internet world and that we have frequently heard recently
What does exactly Metaverse mean? How is it going to change people’s lives and futures?
As almost everyone who closely follows the digital world knows, this area, where many technology companies, led by the social media giant Facebook, direct their investments, has recently increased its popularity even more.
Metaverse means “beyond the universe” What does metaverse mean to us?
Metaverse, one of the latest innovations of the digital world, can be briefly explained as a virtual reality environment that allows multiple participation and interaction.
With Metaverse, many imaginations will take place in the virtual world.
Metaverse refers to a virtual sharing space formed by the combination of the entire digital world, that is, a fictional universe. This universe can be reached with virtual and augmented reality technologies. Therefore, the development of these technologies is also an important issue for the metaverse. With Metaverse, in the future, users will be able to step into a digital universe through virtual reality or augmented reality technologies, spend time here, and find themselves in a different experience.
With Metaverse, we can say that a copy of the real world can be created in a virtual reality environment. In this virtual environment, users will take place with their own personal identities. But it will be up to you to determine your appearance. Because in this virtual universe, you will take place with your own avatar, as well as your virtual identity. Mankind will be able to spend time in a second universe.
In fact, with Web 3.0, people were already able to communicate online through digital platforms. But the metaverse will take these communications and interactions to a very different level. thanks to the avatars they will create, users, will be able to play games, shop, perform social activities, travel, and even work in three dimensions. However these things are not possible yet. Because in our day current VR and VR technologies are limited. For this reason, it can be said that humanity is still in the pre-metaverse period.
Blockchain, NFT, and Crypto World
We need to mention NFT and Blockchain while talking about Metaverse. As everyone who closely follows the digital world knows, many media sold as NFTs are protected in the digital world. It is stated that with Metaverse, it will be possible to exhibit and sell these works or other content created. In addition, the metaverse will be able to use these virtual assets in the digital universe with blockchain technology.
It should be noted that the concept of crypto money also has an important place in this universe. Therefore, cryptocurrencies can also enable the successful functioning of the virtual economy that will be formed in this virtual universe. Recently, Facebook’s changing its name to Meta and announcing that it will invest in the metaverse area has greatly increased the interest in metaverse coins.
This universe, which is the basis of internet and virtual reality technologies, will have an important place in the future of humanity. But why?
Metaverse is a much broader term than we think.
Although new trends frequently emerge in the digital world with the development of technology, most of these trends are forgotten in a short time. However, we cannot say this about the metaverse. Because there are many technology companies that want to invest in the virtual world and they are very excited about it. As a matter of fact, Facebook is one of these companies.
One of the most important reasons why the concept of metaverse has become an important topic and is frequently talked about is undoubtedly the pandemic that has been experienced all over the world for the last two years. In this process, most of the people started to do most of their work digitally, from shopping to business life. In this process, where digitalization has increased rapidly, the interest in the concept of metaverse has naturally increased.
Virtual reality technologies are currently used mostly in the game industry. With Metaverse, the use of these technologies will become much more widespread.
Metaverse has been in our lives for a long time considering the game industry. So much so that we witness that players who are called “gamers” in society create a new and different identity for themselves in the virtual world. We can see many games that have created their own virtual universe in this sector, whose dimensions are expanding day by day.
Therefore, the concept of the metaverse, which has been mentioned frequently lately, is already a part of our lives. For now, this virtual world does not feel realistic enough, but in the very near future, this situation will make greater progress in the light of developments in technologies such as AR, VR, XR.
We stated that with Metaverse, a virtual universe will be created not only for the game industry but also for many other fields. In technology circles, it is believed that the metaverse will create an economic system in which people will be able to make money. In short, the metaverse will enable most of the things that human beings dream of to take place in the virtual universe.
