Description
The article is describing the up-and-coming technology of the Metaverse. The author cites industry leaders who explain that, for the Metaverse, companies “are building a 1-to-1 map of almost unimaginable scope. When it's complete, our physical reality will merge with the digital universe.” This technology aspires to establish a sense of shared reality, that can be experienced either completely virtually, or as a form of Mixed Reality (MR): "people will be able to enter the metaverse, completely virtually (i.e. with virtual reality) or interact with parts of it in their physical space with the help of augmented and mixed reality." After unpacking the concept of the Metaverse, the article moved on to imagine some of its potential implications on Culture, Economy, and Entertainment.
