Such is its importance that the comparator Hellosafe estimates that, once these virtual environments take off completely, especially those based on blockchain and in the games market, it will quickly reach three billion users worldwide. The reason is that the metaverse is becoming one of the most promising technologies of recent years, and to enjoy the opportunities and experiences it offers, users need an avatar.
The metaverse is a shared three-dimensional virtual space, encompassing multiple virtual worlds and interconnected digital experiences, accessed through devices such as VR glasses. It is a term that has gained popularity in the field of technology and video games, but also extends to other areas such as healthcare, education and commerce. It also goes hand in hand with the momentum of fields such as virtual reality, augmented reality and online social interaction.
So what is an avatar in the metaverse? It is the virtual representation of the users themselves through which it is possible to explore diverse digital scenarios, ranging from cities to fantastic landscapes. It also allows interaction, which takes place in real time, and facilitates socialising, collaborating, playing, communicating, and performing leisure or work activities.
In terms of the inspiration for the concept, the basic idea is to create a shared, persistent and coherent space. For those who are not very familiar with these environments, one could say that it is something similar to that found in works of fiction such as Neal Stephenson’s novel Snow Crash or the film Ready Player One.
Major technology and video game companies have long been exploring the construction of metaverses and the integration of more immersive virtual experiences into their platforms. With the success of some of the most famous metaverses such as Decentraland or The Sanbox, the results are expected to have a significant impact on the way we interact with the metaverse and each other in the future, as it has the potential to redefine the traditional concept of the Internet and open up new opportunities for creativity, innovation and collaboration, in addition to the expected good economic results.
