according to Tim CookApple’s CEO, the Metaverse will become an integral part of our lives in the future, but not as peddled to us from multiple directions, a high-definition RPG where we can interact and replicate what might happen in real life .
Tim Cook believes in AR’s potential
This company manager It is believed that there is a metaverse, called Augmented Reality (AR) in the jargon, that will be a true must-have in the future and will become an integral part of our lives So much so to wonder how we lived without it before.
new word metaverse, by Neil Stephenson In Avalanche (a masterpiece of the science fiction genre) is a virtual reality in which the subject interacts in a three-dimensional world through his own transposition, essentially an avatar.
But how is this achieved in reality? For several years, many have been experimenting with what is now commonly referred to as the metaverse by creating platforms where users can use a world that is different or similar to the real world, like a social network.
In these cases, they have the advantage of physically interacting and reproducing aspects of reality in various ways.
The way to enjoy them is simple, either through a helmet or goggles (Oculus) to help users immerse themselves in the world, or through a “treadmill” type platform that simulates movement, 360-degree rotation.
In a virtual place where we are immersed through hardware (I’ll rename it as if it were an accessory given how the hardware is worn), our reality is achieved through virtual interactions through Oculus or Google Such hardware becomes reality glasses, various face shields, etc. enhance the possibility of human interaction and commercial interaction.
Interoperability is necessary Metaverse All of these are cause for concern as different developers work on independent projects, but according to PhD.Dmitry Mikhalov The National University is still Singapore, and the technology and regulations of these virtual spaces are still poor.
Ready Player One-style living or a simple business meeting or a walk with the family may be far from what you will be a reality, but it’s only possible with virtual space interoperability.
Future uses of the Metaverse
Gartner Marty Resnick believes that the activities possible in augmented reality will eventually take place in a single metaverse with multiple interaction possibilities, a kind of bazaar of metaverses.
Cook said in an interview with Dutch Bright:
“I think AR is a profound technology that affects everything… We’re going to really look back and think about how we once lived without AR.”
AR also refers to mainstream games, such as the mobile game Pokemon Go, which makes 3D cartoon characters appear in the real world through an app, or IKEA’s app, where people can look through their smartphone’s camera.
The CEO said the term Metaverse is often used to describe a platform using VR technology where people can connect with each other, but Apple is turning its attention to new AR-based products, including visors and glasses for augmented reality .
According to recent statistics, by 2026, 25% of people will spend at least an hour in AR or VR.
