How To Enter And Access The Metaverse

Since 2016, VR headsets have been accessible, and many companies have been working on virtual and augmented reality to provide the ideal digital experience over the last five years. However, Meta is the only company with the resources and scale to execute Metaverse's promise.

The Oculus Quest 2 and other VR headsets are critical components of the Metaverse because they allow users to enter and experience virtual reality. If you own an Oculus Quest 2, you've already arrived at the Metaverse's doorway.

There is no one way to enter the Metaverse in a strict sense. The concept isn't complete yet since it will require a single interconnected global environment similar to the Internet. As a result, there is no single app named Metaverse that can be launched. Because the Metaverse is fundamentally a digital cosmos, it exists in bits and pieces across different platforms. These pieces shape various applications and games that allow users to enter them and interact with avatars while socializing and playing. You'll need at least one of these applications loaded on your Oculus Quest 2 in order to receive the Metaverse experience before it's completely available.

As previously stated, an Oculus Quest 2 virtual reality headset is required to fully explore the Metaverse. It has a graphics processor and storage components built right into the headset. It has six built-in external tracking cameras that monitor your head and hands inside a place without the use of additional tracking sensors. Along with the headgear, you'll get an oculus touch controller, which has a joystick and buttons for grabbing and interacting with virtual items.

The first time you put on the headset, you will get a monochrome vision of your surroundings. It's feasible because of the tracking cameras on the outside. You can plainly plan out spots to wander about from here. 

You can look above your floor with the augmented reality marker. You must determine and confirm your border. After that, the real world around you will dissolve, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the virtual 3D environment.

The headset also distributes sound in all directions and allows you to hear ambient sounds in the real world. Connect a set of headphones if you want to fully immerse yourself in the 3D experience. It will remove background noise, allowing you to focus on your experience. When using the headset, you can also receive phone alerts. While wearing the headset, users can get notifications such as social media updates or meeting reminders.

A dedicated virtual reality headset is not required for all Metaverse systems. Some metaverse systems, such as Decentraland, may be accessed using your web browser on your desktop PC or laptop. However, in order to get the most out of the Metaverse platforms, a VR headset may be required in the future, but it is not required right now.

With all that being said, the pure Metaverse — an immersive virtual environment that you can enter rather than merely see on a screen – is still a long way off. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, on the other hand, believes the Metaverse will be widespread in 5-10 years.

However, there are still a few metaverse platforms that are available at the moment to get started. I will share the process to join three of the popular ones: The Sandbox, Decentraland, and Axie Infinity Metaverse.

 

The Sandbox

The Sandbox is a virtual environment in which you may create, own, and commercialize your game experiences. Using the VoxEdit & Game Maker tools, you can build avatars, virtual items, and even games, monetize them as NFTs, and sell them for SAND tokens on The Sandbox Marketplace. To join The Sandbox Metaverse, follow these steps:

  • Visit the webpage of The Sandbox Metaverse.
  • In the upper right corner, click the "Sign In" button.
  • You'll be prompted to join your MetaMask account after clicking the button.
  • After that, fill in your username, email address, and password.
  • Now, in the left pane, click "Create."
  • Download and install Game Maker on your computer.
  • Simply open the app, enter your credentials, and you're done!

 

Decentraland

Decentraland is a virtual environment similar to The Sandbox where you may play, explore, and participate in games and activities. You may buy LAND chunks and create your own landscapes and apps, much as in The Sandbox.

Joining the Decentraland Metaverse is rather simple and quick because no software is required. To join the Decentraland Metaverse, follow these steps:

  • Go to the Decentraland website first.
  • In the upper right corner, click the "START EXPLORING" button.
  • You will now be given two choices: play as a guest or play with your money.
  • You must link your MetaMask/WalletConnect/Fortmatic wallet if you want to play with your wallet.
  • After that, the game will begin to load.
  • You will be brought to the Decentraland gameworld without having to sign in if you want to play as a guest.

You will only be allowed to do restricted things as a visitor, such as exploring the country and personalizing your avatar. If you play with your cash, you may buy LAND and build ASSETS and play different games.

 

Axie Infinity Metaverse

The blockchain version of Pokemon GO, Axie Infinity, is a great way to get started with the Metaverse. You may make money while playing the game in your leisure time or when traveling by bus, rail, or aircraft. So, if you want to play the game, here's how to do it:

  • Go to the official Axie website first.
  • In the upper right corner, click the Play Now banner.
  • Then, to store your digital assets, you'll need to create a Ronin Wallet.
  • After that, you must purchase three Axies in order to begin playing the game. AXS coins may be deposited into your Ronin Wallet and Axies can be purchased on the official Axie Marketplace.
  • Now you must create a gaming account by entering your email address and password.
  • After that, you may download Axie Infinity, login, and start playing. The game runs on Windows, Mac OS X, Android, and iOS (TestFlight).
