The word METAVERSE is coined from two words, the prefix; “META” which means “beyond” and the surfix; “VERSE” which is derived from the word “universe”.
METAVERSE is a combination of physical, virtual and augmented reality, in a shared online environment.
Just like in the normal internet, you get to login and connect to the virtual world with the help of a head mounted display of a virtual reality headset.
Humans get to experience life or exist in a virtual world in form of avatars and also get to see buildings, people and vehicles just like in the real world.
With the metaverse, you get to exist in a virtual world where you’re previleged to experience similar real life scenarios but in a virtual form with limitless abilities.
It is more like being present in the internet rather than staring at it on a screen
Instead of video chatting your friends on a screen, the metaverse puts you in a virtual 3D environment (of your choice) similar to the real world where you get to interact, play games, discuss etc with your friends who are represented by their avatars, all with the help of a specially designed virtual reality headset.
