Since the invention of the iPhone, our relationship with software has been dominated by the devices in our pockets. The “metaverse” aims to change that.
The metaverse, broadly, is new immersive software accessible through wearable devices. It encompasses both virtual reality and augmented reality platforms. Applications for the technology include gaming, education, business and social networking.
Big tech companies including Apple, Google and Microsoft are making moves into the evolving space. Facebook believes in the metaverse so much so that it has rebranded its entire company to “Meta.” Companies are always trying to build the future.
