What to Expect in the Metaverse: The Metaverse in the digital sphere
The metaverse is the bridge between AI and VR, and basically presents itself as a virtual reality world for gamers, social media, and social environments. It will even be a place for ecommerce businesses to leverage, and the events industry. In that respect, as an example, it means that customers could potentially try on clothes in the metaverse without physically being there. Or, be at concerts and events without actually being there, too.
The rise of VR
Virtual reality is becoming more and more prolific as time goes on and the digital world develops. Currently, there’s VR headsets that are more in demand, and VR gaming is currently getting more and more popular. Now, the metaverse is planned to bring more aspects of VR into day to day life, meaning there will be more equipment to buy in both hardware and in the metaverse, too.
What part will digital avatars play?
In the metaverse, people will be able to interact as different avatars and 3D characters. It’s likely that there will be NFT characters and profile pictures. That means that different aspects of avatars can be bought, such as clothing and skins. More about NFTs below…
