History Of The Metaverse

History Of The Metaverse

In the 1992 sci-fi classic, Snow Crash, author Neil Stephenson describes a virtual-reality-based successor to the internet. The 2011 novel Ready Player One popularised the concept where you can do anything, be anyone, and go anywhere regardless of real-life circumstances.

Computers, the internet, and smartphones give us that life on a two-dimensional screen. But in a three-dimensional Metaverse, we can experience all the world wide web has to offer in a natural user interface.

An Integral Part Of Life

An Integral Part Of Life

Just like it's difficult to imagine life now without your phone or the internet, the Metaverse will become an integral part of life. Anyone with a virtual reality headset will be able to experience the best of what life has to offer and be unbound by the laws of physics.

Entering The Virtual World

Entering The Virtual World

The Metaverse could be experienced in three stages.

  1. A head-mounted display and two hand controllers. VR today only influences sight, hearing, and a limited form of touch.
  2. Haptic bodysuits and omnidirectional treadmills or shoes could allow the body to feel and move around a virtual space as it would in the real world.
  3. Advanced VR will include neurohaptics. Neurotech is a technology that can use signals from the brain to replicate a virtual environment without any user interface.
