Hello Techtunes folks, how are you all? Hope everybody is well. From now on, we regularly come to you with new tunes. And is there any other way to stay away from Techtunes’ new topics and services? And in order to keep up with this ever new topic and trend of service, today I came up with a brand new topic with you. And through this tune you will be able to know all the new information.
Tech executives are currently talking about “Metavers”. And Mark Zuckerberg has insisted that Facebook be transformed into a “metaverse company” instead of a social media company. And Satya Nadella has announced that Microsoft Enterprise is creating a “metaverse stack”. In this tune we will explain what has been happening since the beginning of Snow Crash.
1. Source of “Metavers”: Snow Crash
Author Neil Stephenson is a dystopian cyberpunk novel published in 1992 Snow Crash A coined the term “metavers”.
In the novel, Metaverse is a kind of 3D virtual world. It’s not just a virtual reality game, it’s a permanently shared virtual world. Or, Metaverse is one of the shared virtual spaces that seemingly unites the entire universe.
If you think these are somewhat Ready Player One Or more advanced technology than Second Life, then you are right.
In fact, in 2011, Stephenson told Forbes that he World of Warcraft Looking at video games like this as a real metaverse: you can live with your friends in this virtual world. In 2021, Minecraft And Fortnite In games like this, perhaps the metavers he saw seemed more real.
2. Is “Metavers” just rebranding the virtual reality concept?
When Mark Zuckerberg talked about Metavers, he expressed a desire to rebrand this virtual reality. No, it’s not just designed to run games or social apps on the Facebook Oculus VR headset: it was created to access Metaverse.
In 2016, Stephenson Vanity Fair Highlight the case that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) were unnecessary for such an approach:
If you are in the AR application then there is no change in the location where you are now. You are in your physical environment, you see everything around you normally but additional features are being added. And so VR to AR has the potential to take you to a completely different imaginary place – Snow Crash That kind of thing has been described as metavers. When you go into the Metavers world you are on the road, you are in the black sun and suddenly all around you will disappear. And the hero in the novel lives in a dilapidated shipping container, but when he goes to the metaverse world he lives in a big and luxurious real estate.
3. Maybe Metavers is the concept of the new “Web 2.0”
What is Metaverse? This is a huge digital simulation option, which we can access by using VR headsets so that we can pretend to have a better life even though we live in inanimate shipping containers just like the novel.
According to Mark Zuckerberg, however, what he told The Verge is as follows:
Metaverse is a vision that unites many companies – even the entire industry. You can think of this concept as the successor of mobile and internet. You can think of Metaverse as a tangible Internet, where instead of just looking at the content, you will be in the content yourself. And you will feel present with other people that you are in a different place, there are different experiences that you can not do in 2D app or web page, such as: dance.
I think a lot of people, when they think of metavars, think only of virtual reality – but I think virtual reality is going to be an important part of metavars. But Metaverse is not just a virtual reality. It is being made accessible across our various computing platforms, from VR, AR to PC and also mobile devices and gaming consoles.
Zuckerberg went on to say that “Metavers” is going to be a big thing in the future and in the next five years, Facebook will be seen as a Metaverse company instead of a social media company.
Zuckerberg and other technology executives believe that the concept of “Metavers” has a lot in common with “Web 2.0”. It is a combination of many new technologies: VR headsets, presence and the constant digital world! Imagine that you are having an office meeting in VR while working from home – but don’t think that you can participate in a meeting on a laptop without a VR headset.
When you realize that Facebook owns Oculus, it makes perfect sense to push the company’s future into VR-based platforms.
4. Microsoft and “Digital Twins”
Microsoft’s approach to metavers is to make “Digital Twins” and “Mixed Reality” a reality with the help of digital technology. And to do this, Microsoft can use their Azure Cloud.
And yes, we know about the “Mixed Reality” headset in Windows 10, moreover, Microsoft often refers to this term as virtual reality. However, the meaning of the word may be more elaborate: and Microsoft has a headset called HoloLens that you can buy if you want.
The term metaverse is almost new to us. Moreover, Metaverse seems to me to be an updated version of the virtual box or a second generation virtual box. With this metaverse we can get lost in the world of our imagination right away. And with Metavers you can enjoy a lot of things that we can’t even imagine now.
How would you feel if you could travel to your favorite place at home? Again, like the reality. Sounds amazing! Isn’t that so? This technology will easily become popular after losing all other technologies. I am finishing today’s tune by expressing this hope.
