The metaverse has been discussed for quite some time. In October 2021, Meta (Facebook) CEO Mark Zuckerberg named the company Meta.

The term metaverse may suddenly become a topic of discussion today, but it is a very old term. Let’s take a look at its history.
History of the Metaverse
The year was 1992 when Neal Stephenson mentioned the metaverse in his dystopian novel “Snow Crash”. In Stephenson’s novel, the metaverse refers to a world (video game) where people connect with each other with the help of gadgets. Gadgets include headphones, virtual reality. This video game takes the logo into the virtual world, in today’s report let’s find out what is Metaverse and why the world’s biggest technology companies are investing in Metaverse?
What is the Metaverse?
In the real world you can touch and feel everything. But Metaverse (Virtual World) is completely opposite. The Metaverse is a virtual world that depends entirely on high-speed Internet. It is not possible to go in this world without high speed internet and gadgets. In the real world, to visit a place, you have to physically go to that place, but in the Metaverse, you can visit any corner of America or the world from the comfort of your home. You can even feel the space at home. Everything in the metaverse is virtual. Nothing is real, the metaverse refers to a world where you are there even if you are not physically there.
Let’s explain with an example, in the metaverse, a student sitting in a village can sit in a normal classroom in a college in Delhi and take the same class. But he will not be physically present in the class. It may surprise you to know that even people who are not in this world can be talked to in the Metaverse. To do this, in the Metaverse, first you need to create a hologram from the image of that person and then with the help of artificial intelligence you will be able to speak.
Essential to the Metaverse experience
Metaverse requires a virtual reality headset and high-speed Internet. You can’t experience the Metaverse without it. It requires augmented reality goggles, a smartphone and a mobile app Let it be clear here that Metaverse cannot be experienced from mobile alone. Yes it is definitely possible that you can watch recorded videos of Metaverse from mobile, but it is not possible to experience Metaverse only from mobile.
In the Metaverse, human holograms are created or called virtual avatars. To create this avatar, the person has 360 degree scanning. Also, cryptocurrencies are used for buying and selling in the metaverse. The world of metaverse is completely based on high-speed internet, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality, machine learning, blockchain technology. The Metaverse is said to be the future of the Internet.
