Facebook’s recent decision to change its name to Meta brought instant worldwide awareness to the term “Metaverse,” which refers to a virtual world in which we can explore, play, work, and create. The metaverse can also extend into the physical world using augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) technologies.
The metaverse could change the way industries like manufacturing, healthcare, education, travel and tourism, retail, and more function and will pave the way to develop countless products, services, and solutions in ways that we can’t yet imagine.
