Providing a global and comprehensive view of the Metaverse

ABOUT THE METAVERSE 

 

The Metaverse is the latest futuristic technology trend capturing public attention. It has been 30 years since the term "metaverse" was coined by Neal Stephenson in his 1992 science fiction novel Snow Crash, and 48 years since Steve Mann invented, and coined the term, "metavision" as extended reality using wearable computing. Metaverse may refer to a kind of experiences in which the outside world is perceived by the users (human or non-human) as being a universe that is actually built upon digital technologies as a different universe ("Virtual Reality"), a digital extension of our current universe ("Augmented Reality" or "Mixed Reality"), or a digital counterpart of our current universe ("Digital Twin"). Named after the universe, a metaverse shall be persistent, and should be massive, comprehensive, immersive, and self-consistent. Described with "meta", a metaverse should be ultra-realistic, accessible, pervasive, and may be decentralized. In a narrow sense, metaverse may be simply defined as Persistent Virtual Reality (PVR). In a broad sense, metaverse is the advanced stage and long-term vision of Digital Transformation.

 

Today, the Metaverse is like a magic word that inspires infinite imaginations of countless people from various professions and backgrounds. There are different metaverses in the eyes of different people, but the biggest consensus on the Metaverse so far is that it will have a profound impact on our daily work, play, and life, across all industries and sectors, reshaping the economy and society for all humankind.
