Virtual Reality and Metaverse
The metaverse is a universe of scientific magic. The foundation for metaverse is Virtual Reality technology. Virtual Reality’s main component is a Head-Mounted Device (HMD) which offers a 3D view to its user. The user in a VR environment feels the real-life experience while being in a virtual environment. A virtual reality environment is either non-immersive, which is the most straightforward virtual reality environment. A semi-immersive VR environment is a bit more complex, where the user experiences more senses in a virtual arena. At the same time, an immersive virtual reality environment is the most challenging arena. The user experiences all of their five senses in a virtual environment with the help of a head-mounted device and other relevant computing and digital equipment.
Metaverse at its Core
The metaverse is the network of inter-related immersive Virtual Reality users who interact with each other with the help of Head-Mounted Devices and digital equipment. Big technology giants Microsoft and Facebook are heavily investing in metaverse technology by foreseeing a vast business potential in this emerging technology. The decision-makers of the big IT companies foresee the adaptation of metaverse technology just like most people in the present world are now linked to the IoT in either way or the other.
Potential Challenges to Metaverse
Once a good chunk of the world population is associated with the metaverse environment, they will trade with each other in this virtual reality environment. However, this technology is still evolving; mainly, the Head-Mounted Device used for the VR interaction is still not as interactive as this should be. HMD catches the eye movements and verbal commands passed by the user to make their interaction possible. Many people using this device still don’t feel much comfort in using this equipment. Tech companies are confident that they will successfully overcome these hurdles to offer their customers a better interactive environment in a virtual environment.
