'Metaverse' is the latest buzzword flying around the tech world. But what is it? Is it really the future? If we think of the internet as something that we look at, the metaverse is a virtual world, a version of the internet, that we are inside, controlling the experience. You can look however you want, talk to whoever you want, be wherever you want, appearing as an avatar.

There are already examples of things you might think of being part of the metaverse. You may have seen avatars in video games and social media interacting inside digital worlds.

Developers are working on new ways to get into the metaverse, using virtual reality headsets, augmented reality glasses and even gloves that let you touch and feel virtual objects.

And famous faces are jumping on to this new trend. You might have seen Ariana Grande or Justin Bieber's virtual concert.



What do you think about the metaverse? What do you imagine we will do there in the future?

It's an excellent technology, but I think it will be bad for humanity. People will disconnect from real life, their lives. I don't think a virtual environment will be good.

I think that we are already in the metaverse, but with the past of the time we are going to improving it, and making it more complex... I think that is a bit dangerous but helpfull at the same time... It really calls my attention knwo how jobs and school will be with metaverse.
