The metaverse of the future will transform how we work and our sense of self — and what we see now is only scratching the surface, writes Eaven Portillo.
The metaverse will probably look a tad different than what you imagine it to be. A tiny bit less ridiculous, a good amount of abundance and a whole lot more… real. And yes, you will be wearing a headset, acting as an “entry point.”
We are, without a fraction of a doubt, seeing explosive growth when it comes to all things metaverse, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and digitalization. The thing is, though, we are still in the beginning of it all and are very much in the early innings of the metaverse and its real-life applications.
As with any other paradigm-shifting new addition to our day-to-day lives, it is difficult to properly imagine and visualize what it will look like in the near five-year future, let alone how it will develop and grow in a few decades.
That being said, the last couple of years have established a direction of sorts and given us a loose north star to build and ideate towards. At the same time, the last decade’s worth of metaverse experiments has also offered a glimpse into what the future could look like.
