Latest Metaverse Headlines

virtual metaverse

It became one of the fastest growing sectors, and trends as a buzzword of the year. But what is the Metaverse? 

The Metaverse is the fusion of computer-enhanced environments within perceived reality. Often utilising various methods of extended reality, the Metaverse is an immersive, virtually enhanced environment populated by computer-generated graphics. The Metaverse has come to incorporate Web 3.0 ideas for decentralised ownership within metanomics (the metaverse economy). The Metaverse, we believe, is the next evolution of the internet.

metaverse origins

History and Origins of The Metaverse

The term originated in Snow Crash, a dystopian science fiction classic by Neal Stephenson in 1992, to describe the virtual world people travelled in using avatars. Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline, introduced us to the concept of a Virtual Reality Metaverse, brought to the screen in 2018 by Steven Spielberg. But today’s Metaverse is far from such science fiction worlds. In many ways, the Metaverse is at its birth and consists of siloed platforms. The Metaverse will indeed arrive with interoperability when you can seamlessly navigate Metaverses across various platforms.

Virtual worlds date back as far as 1978, Multi-User Dungeon or MUD ( MUD1 to distinguish it from its replacement) developed by Roy Trubshaw and Richard Bartle at the University of Essex. Initially a TELNET game, MUD was the first game to feature talking avatars and a multi-player digital world. Often described as the forerunner to today’s Metaverse, Second Life from Phil Rosedale’s and Linden Lab’s featured a graphical virtual world, customisable avatars, and its own currency. Decentraland, the first decentralised Metaverse, came along in 2017. Utilising blockchain technology allowed actual ownership of digital assets. 

The Metaverse currently spans gaming platforms such as Fortnite and Roblox and centralised owned platforms such as Horizon Worlds and AltspaceVR. Mixed Reality platforms such as Microsoft Mesh and decentralised Metaverses such as The Sandbox, Decentraland and Voxels. You can enter the Metaverse via mobile and desktop devices and with extended reality headsets. The headsets transform you into virtual and mixed reality worlds that are highly immersive. The Metaverse, in many ways, mirrors the development of the world wide web with pioneers building a new technological world and pushing the boundaries with each product.

Metanomics and the Metaverse Economy

Already the Metaverse has an economy where you can buy NFTs for digital assets supported by Blockchain. NFTs are non-interchangeable units of data recorded on a blockchain as a digital ledger that stores ownership. NFTs are used in trade within the Metaverse for digital creations, including art, wearables and land. Enthusiasts claim that in the future Metaverse, we will learn, work, shop, socialise and be entertained through this disruptive technology. It will impact every aspect of our lives and introduce a fusion of technology and reality. Decentralised Metaverses utilise Crypto Tokens built on Cryptocurrency, such as Ethereum and Binance blockchain. The Metaverse, in many ways, mirrors the development of the world wide web with pioneers building a new technological world and pushing the boundaries with each product.


Technology and Innovation

The fusion of extended reality and A.I. are set to become part of our everyday lives. The Metaverse is yet to be defined, it is not here yet, but the foundations are being built. Let Meta Moron take you on a journey through the Metaverse as it evolves. We provide an interactive guide where players rate and review the platforms. The Metaverses in this guide all share one feature that qualifies them as Metaverse platforms, they are all multiplayer virtual worlds where you can interact through customisable avatars and socialise. Platforms in the Metaverse Guide have been categorised by ownership, target audience, and technology attributes and are ordered by our internal Metaverse platform ranking system that uses real-time data from visitors to determine results. You can also keep up to date on News and articles on development as this new technology impacts the mainstream.
