Imagine simply having to put on a VR headset and you’re immediately transported into another world—a world quite similar to where you come from, only it is one that promises brand new experiences, exciting breakthroughs, and limitless possibilities. That’s the virtual space of the metaverse, and it could be arriving a lot sooner than you think.
Some would call it a “virtual world”, where everything that people do in real life is replicated but in a virtual way. The more technical people would say that it’s “collection of virtual spaces”, a world of unending, intertwined digital communities of people from all walks of life. Regardless of how you want to look at it, one thing’s for certain—the metaverse is slowly becoming a reality and has started to change our lives one way or another.
Let’s face it. We spend a great deal of time on the internet, whether for work or leisure. So why not make the time that we already spend better? In the metaverse, our lives on the internet will become more immersive, where we get to be inside our online experiences and no longer just looking at a screen. By means of avatars, which are 3D representations of ourselves, we’ll be able to explore the different kinds of experiences the metaverse has to offer.
Ever wonder what it’s like to do your shopping in any of the luxurious retail stores that line the busy shopping paradise that is Fifth Ave? The metaverse can take you there—like you’re present in the store, picking a designer handbag for yourself—no matter where in the world you actually are. From shopping, going to a concert, taking a trip, to visiting art galleries, the next version of the internet is sure to unlock a lot of amazing new experiences for you!
While it’s safe to say that the metaverse is going to alter the way we think and our entire way of living, there’s an even more important questions to ask from a business standpoint: How will the metaverse change the way we work and how can we be ready for it?
Since many businesses all over the world have tried their hands at “working virtually” during the raging of the pandemic, the idea of using AR and VR in the workspace for training, conferences and meetings, and providing better customer service is no longer bizarre and far-fetched. Picture this: Having a face-to-face meeting with a client, like you’re right in the room together, even though you’re from opposite sides of the globe. Some years ago, this might sound like such a ridiculous idea—but thanks to VR and AR, our workspaces are constantly being transformed and things like this have become more plausible.
The metaverse can also enormously change how businesses and consumers interact with each other. Afterall, it’s the future of workspaces and lo and behold, it looks like it’s here to stay. Whilst some might say that we are years or even a decade away from reaching the vision people have for it today, it pays to be ready. If your business already has plans in place to provide a good metaverse customer experience, you’ll have an upper hand once it fully exists.
