For most people, the biggest questions are still; What is the metaverse, and what does it mean for the future of business meetings, events, and more. The way we work is changing. In this article, Lotta writes about how more people are working remotely. Also, more people want flexible work options, and more people are re-thinking what it means to be in an office. Lotta describes her first VR (Oculus) meeting in a beautiful virtual room. She could even do a high five and shake their hands, without worrying about covid-19.
Meta in the term means “beyond” and verse refers to the “universe.”
The Metaverse has as many different descriptions as the people You ask. No one really knows exactly what it is and what it will become. There is not one metaverse, there are many. Each company can create its own metaverse, virtual world and we already see this happening.
‘Future of the Metaverse
The metaverse is probably here to stay, and this seems to be the “solution” to interact with each other in a new dimension, no matter if You work from home or in an office. The Metaverse will for example be a way for business partners to have meetings globally without the need to travel anywhere physically.
At the same time, the Metaverse will also be a way for people to participate in concerts and join membership clubs in different locations, though still being at home. Instead of online shopping, You will be able to visit the Metaverse for different brands and see and “feel” the clothes in an almost real version. Many brands have already created their own metaverses. You can test-drive Your favorite car, visit countries You haven´t been to, and walk in the streets to get the feeling of how it is to be there. Or why not take the roller coaster around the globe out in space?
