How is the Future of Internet and Metaverse Intertwined ?
Based on this CNA Insider Story, Facebook has bet big on it, changing its name to Meta in October. And it’s caught the imagination of tech founders as far back as the noughties. The term METAVERSE was first coined by American author Neal Stephenson in his sci-fi novel Snow Crash in 1992.
It describes a parallel digital universe and the next iteration of the internet, which promises to allow us to live, work and play within the virtual world. Host Joshua Lim experiences the technologies that are already unlocking the promise of the metaverse today, and explores what the brave new virtual world would mean for everyone
In futurism and science fiction, the Metaverse is a hypothetical iteration of the Internet as a single, universal and immersive virtual world that is facilitated by the use of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headsets. In colloquial use, a Metaverse is a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection.
The term “Metaverse” originated in the 1992 science fiction novel Snow Crash as a portmanteau of “meta” and “universe.” Metaverse development is often linked to advancing virtual reality technology due to increasing demands for immersion.
Recent interest in Metaverse development is influenced by Web3, a concept for a decentralised iteration of the internet. Web3 and The Metaverse have been used as buzzwords to exaggerate development progress of various related technologies and projects for public relations purposes. Information privacy, user addiction, and user safety are concerns within the Metaverse, stemming from challenges facing the social media and video game industries as a whole.
