Facebook Metaverse ‘Meta’ and the Vision Behind it
Facebook has renamed its parent company as 'Meta'.
The Meta platform has been promoted as a future that is created by everyone.
Meta means 'beyond' because the Meta platform is expected to go above and beyond how we connect with others, play games, and live our lives in general.
Mark Zuckerberg has put special emphasis on making Meta a collective project, in which just about anyone in the world can create for others.
According to Zuckerberg, you will be able to do almost everything in metaverse that you do in real life.
For example, you will be able to hold and attend meetings and even purchase real estate in the virtual world.
Facebook's Metaverse Plan
Facebook's metaverse plan includes mastering the two technologies and releasing hardware required to best use of Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality.
Facebook's Quest 2 device is one of the best for attending events or playing sports in the metaverse.
As virtual reality is a critical component of your metaverse experience, the Quest 2 has been made with great care.
The VR experience by Facebook includes Workrooms that serve as the perfect place for office meetings.
In addition, music applications such as a Beat Saber (bought by Meta) allow you to enjoy music with your friends and family.
Augmented Reality is all about enhancing reality with technology. With metaverse on the horizon, augmented reality will become a part of our daily life like never before.
Meta is focused upon giving power to its users by allowing them to create and share their creations online.
By providing a platform called Spark AR, Meta will inspire creativity amongst users and build intrigue about ARs potential in the metaverse.
