The keys to the metaverse
What is a metaverse?
The word "metaverse" is composed of "meta" meaning "beyond" and "verse" referring to the idea of "universe". It is therefore a virtual universe that reproduces experiences and sensations that go beyond the real world.
The concept first appeared in 1992 in the novel "Snow Crash" by Neal Stephenson. It has been evolving ever since. But a turning point came in 2021 when Mark Zuckerberg decided to make a paradigm shift from Facebook to Meta, to focus on these virtual worlds.
What can I do in a metaverse?
In a metaverse, you take the form of an avatar (the image that others will have of you). You can customise it as you want and even buy clothes and accessories!
You can then interact with other users in real time. In addition, you can play, do shopping, watch videos, participate in business meetings or attend cultural events.
