Imagine a 3D digital world where you can work remotely, visit digital e-commerce stores, hang out with friends from any corner of the world, and enjoy digital concerts & so many activities from the comfort of your home. All these things are possible in the metaverse platform powered by optimized technologies. As we all know, the metaverse concept originated in 1992, but a few decades later how big companies like Meta, and Microsoft are approaching it & mating their own metaverse platform.

To offer a wide range of virtual experiences in the metaverse, tech giants are already incorporating cutting-edge technologies for the 3D world’s development. Technologies such as blockchain, 3D reconstruction, augmented reality, virtual reality, Internet of things & artificial intelligence are empowering the metaverse.

As the metaverse idea is relatively new but with technological advancement, it is expected to expand beyond virtual games, and social media platforms & more like remote working, a digital entity with decentralized governance & more potential features. It is going to offer a multi-dimensional approach with VR headset & glasses.

Key Technologies Of The Metaverse

Metaverse is introduced as a new era of the internet & promises a digital world where we can do literally anything. Metaverse content and AR/VR headsets will lead the opportunities for businesses & individuals although the metaverse technology is still at an early development stage. Here I am discussing top technologies associated with the tools that power metaverse in front.

AR & VR

Augmented & virtual reality are two massive & essential metaverse development technologies for creating a three-dimensional environment for the real human & their avatars. VR technology refers to the connection of VR experience. It creates a computer-generated virtual environment. You can take the example of virtual trial rooms on an online fashion store. Customers can see how the cloth look on their digital avatars throw VR experience, headsets, gloves & sensors. There are other technologies that are evolving to complement virtual reality in the metaverse.

On the other hand, AR helps you to experience your physical simulation in the virtual environment through VR equipments. Augmented reality converts real-life objects & characters into digital visual components. In this way, users can feel, hear & interact with the virtual elements.

Already many tech giants are investing in VR equipment development that will expand the metaverse experience in near future. One of the most popular virtual reality metaverse devices is Oculus Quest. The Oculus lineup for VR setups started in 2012, & now owned by Meta. The first for Oculus Rift is considered a significant customer-oriented innovation for metaverse gear. It had a resolution of 1080×1200 per eye while the newest Oculus Quest has had 1832×1920 per eye (equivalent to 4K). The Oculus Rift had a 72hz refresh rate, while the recent edition peaked at 90hz, and up to 120hz when connected to a gaming PC via Oculus Link.

Some other devices are: Valve Index- A fully weird head-mounted display, HTC Vive Series- Vive Pro 2 & HP Reverb G2- A windows mixed reality family & Samsung Gear VR.

Artificial Intelligence

AI has served various applications related to facial recognition, decision making, strategy planning & faster computing. Now, experts are finding & studying the possibilities of AI implementation in the immersive metaverse. Following the top technologies, AI is another core technology for creating the metaverse.

The best way you can use the total advantage of AI in the metaverse space is the power of data processing at unbeatable speeds. It can help to detect realistic behavior from NPCs(Non-player characters). NPCs are a vital part of every game. This can be placed on the 3D spaces to facilitate a conversation with the users.

Another worth mentioning is AI for automation to create metaverse avatars. With the help of 3D images of real users, AI helps to design dynamic & more realistic digital avatars. AI algorithm has the ability to learn from the previous iteration & come up with something unique output.

Mixed Reality

For decades, VR dominates the virtual world. VR has driven huge sales of many VR products for virtual reality games. Mixed reality is a blended & optimized approach to AR & VR in the metaverse. It is a merging state of the virtual & physical world to create a completely new environment. Though attractive MR glasses that can deliver an outstanding metaverse experience are not available in the market there are such products as Microsoft Hololens, Magic leap 2, Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2 & Lenovo ThinkReality A3 that are now leading markets.

Microsoft Hololens is the most significant leap for the company to enter the mixed reality. It incorporates many cameras, optical sensors, microphones, light sensors, and a proprietary “Holographic Processing Unit”. This device can perfectly detect a room’s walls, objects, and layout to place metaverse elements. Shortly, it’s one of the best metaverse devices for mixed reality technology.

Another established brand of MR is Magic leap. Their magic leap 1 device provides a multi-modal process of user interaction. This works for both precise manipulation and haptic feedback. Alongside, it also has eye-tracking, hand-tracking, and voice input to streamline AR interaction further.

3D Reconstruction

With the help of 3D reconstruction, we are going to create a digital environment that will be as real as possible. It’s not a new technology, it has been used broadly in the real estate sector during the situation of the pandemic. At that time, agencies had to create virtual property tours adopting 3D reconstruction. In the metaverse, it can create realistic & natural-looking space. In this approach, using 3D cameras you can take the world online by rendering 3D models of the building & physical location. These data & 4K HD photography are then passed through the computer to generate a virtual space in the metaverse. This virtual replica of the physical world’s elements is considered as Digital Twins.

Metaverse is still a development project but experts & tech giants are exploring its potential. Some notable projects in digital real estate sectors are Decentraland, The Sandbox. Also, big companies like Meta, Microsoft & Nvidia also started developing their own metaverse technology. With the advancement of AI, AR, VR, MR & XR we are going to see some amazing metaverse features hopefully.
