A. Introduction to the Metaverse
Metaverse is a combination of the word meta which means beyond and verse which means universe means universe. It can be taken a deeper meaning regarding the metaverse is a world that goes beyond the universe, a world that goes beyond our imagination, goes beyond expectations, and goes beyond reality. A new virtual world where we can do everything in it, we can have new identities, new faces, new clothes, new houses, new vehicles, to do whatever activities we want in it.
We can even carry out economic transactions in it, there will be many virtual shops selling various virtual goods, virtual services, from virtual tours to virtual concerts. For companies, the metaverse opens up limitless possibilities for profit in previously unimaginable ways. For creative industry players, especially in the fields of design and gaming, this is a wide open land of hope.
Previously, we must have played a game called Roblox. Well, the metaverse is almost like roblox where we play an avatar that we create to live and interact with other avatars in a virtual world, the difference is if we play our roblox using our gadget screen, the metaverse is played using a vr device that makes us really really feel as if you are in that virtual world.
Another difference between the roblox game and the metaverse is that if the roblox game has a simple design and appearance, the metaverse will be able to present a 3D world that resembles the real world, even better. So, even though we just stay at home, the book can go anywhere, shop anywhere, meet anyone. From attending meetings to parties, even participating in various virtual games and learning and of course in the virtual world.
