What is metaverse?
Zuckerberg argued that the metaverse would be beneficial to society, the economy, and the environment. But she highlighted the role she will play Especially in economics, with the ecosystem to create the products, services and experiences that will be allowed to be created.
This ecosystem will maintain Facebook’s current approach to creators: offering them services and tools at the lowest cost, compared to other platforms, the director noted. It will be accompanied by new forms of ownership.
Interaction with virtual objects or sound to control the environment will allow the physical world to be combined with the digital world. That’s why the company announced new tools (SDK) So developers can work on their own mixed reality experiences for the metaverse. The Spark AR community now has over 600,000 creators.
The metaverse is a long-term project, but its development will depend on specific hardware designed for it. In this sense, the company has advanced Project Cambria, which will be compatible with Quest helmets and will allow the avatar to reproduce visual communication and expressions in real time thanks to the sensors it integrates. This device will display the image in high definition and mixed reality.
