The Metaverse Revolution
Mankind’s Next Reality
A Futuristic Look at Emerging Technologies
The metaverse, or as some call it, the new internet, is the next phase of the digital revolution. Technology has always played a significant role in creating innovative industries and driving new economies. This keynote presentation derives from the book The Metaverse Revolution written by Wes and scheduled to publish in March of 2022. The metaverse is the newest revelation in the digital space that tech companies are racing to develop. It is a realm of virtual reality (VR) that will change the way we view and live in the physical world. This keynote is available as; an executive-type brief, luncheon, or dinner presentation.
The metaverse uses both virtual and augmented reality (AR) in its technology. While virtual reality allows the user to interact with the world around them, augmented reality allows them to see the world as it is with an overlay of visual, audio, and other sensory input. The digital content appears to be in the same space as the user.
Need directions? The Live View in Google Maps will lay directions over the real world and guide you to your destination. Do you want to see how a new sofa will look in your living room? Use the AR technology in Google Search to snag a digital image and impose the object on your space.
The new realm will change content creation methods, virtual economies, and how we present ourselves in the world. Content creators can design worlds to give their subscribers experiences they could not live in the physical world, and communities that form can attend special events together.
The metaverse will be an extension of the real-world economy. Avatars will exchange cryptocurrencies and use them to purchase and invest in products and services. Non-fungible token (NFT) art will be on display in galleries, and visitors will experience the 3D pieces as the artists truly intended. For anyone who did not understand the value of NFTs, hopefully, they have a bit more clarity about how they will be used.
Our corporate landscape will look completely different than it does now. How people get to work and how they perform tasks will be greatly impacted by the metaverse. Just think of the metaverse as Zoom on steroids for company meetings. Your avatar will sit in conferences, seminars, and training sessions, next to coworkers with a real feeling of presence.
Facebook has big plans for the metaverse’s future, which they have made public with the rebrand. But what exactly are they planning? We will go over the various products and services the company plans to offer and how they will affect your day-to-day living. There is a slew of positive benefits to be gained from the use of such a powerful tool. Users will be able to experience just about any activity they desire, and the citizens of the world will connect in unimaginably creative ways.
