The Metaverse is a coalescence of multiple technologies that have seen fruition through the past decade. Here are a couple of the technologies that make it possible: Artificial Intelligence (AI), The Internet of Things (IoT), AR and VR, 3D modelling, and edge and spatial computing.
AI ensures the stability of the Metaverse's infrastructure as it delivers information to the upper layers.
The IoT allows the Metaverse to interact with the physical world and serves as a 3D UI for devices.
AR and VR let users enter the digital world. Virtual items are embedded in the environment through AR tech. Meanwhile, VR immerses users in a 3D environment.
3D Modelling is important to the Metaverse as it provides the impression that the player is really in the virtual environment.
Spatial Computing leverages physical space as a computer interface.
Edge Computing is a type of cloud computing and service delivery paradigm that is network-based. It offers app solutions such as cloud computing services as well as storage and data.
