New Metaverse Forum Only Shows Big Tech is Reluctant to Face the Real Problems

Big tech companies gather around to make metaverse a more pleasant and useful platform

Recently, I’ve heard a lot about the metaverse, and how it might alter the way we communicate, have fun, and shop. Despite all the enthusiasm, some might even call it the ‘hype’ that the tech companies appear to be serious about and are creating unified standards around it, even though it’s still ways off! A number of businesses have united to join an open standards group for the metaverse, which appears to be a step in the same direction. Its goal is to promote the creation of open standards for the metaverse. It is called the Metaverse Standards Forum. Microsoft, Epic Games, Meta, and 33 other businesses are some of the well-known names that are involved in this project. The first gathering of the group is slated for July. 

 

How the Metaverse Standards Forum will act?

For industry-wide collaboration on the interoperability standards required to construct the open metaverse, the Metaverse Standards Forum brings together top standards organizations and businesses. The forum will look at how the lack of interoperability affects the deployment of the metaverse and how Standards Developing Organizations (SDOs) may coordinate and speed up the process of creating and evolving the necessary standards. In order to speed up the testing and adoption of metaverse standards, the forum will concentrate on practical, action-based projects like implementation prototyping, hackathons, plugfests, and open-source tooling. It will also produce uniform language and deployment guidelines.

 

Who all can join the forum?

Any organization may participate in the Metaverse Standards Forum for free. This indicates that any organization can join the forum and do so for free. Otoy, Perey Research and Consulting, Qualcomm Technologies Ribose, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Spatial Web Found, the Academy Software Foundation, Adobe, Alibaba, Autodesk, Avatar, Blackshark.ai, CalConnect, Cesium Daly Realism, Disguise the Enosema Foundation, Epic Games, the Express Language Foundation, Huawei, IKEA, John Peddie Research, Khronos, Laminal, Maxon, Meta, Microsoft, NVIDIA (XRA) are some of the companies that are already invested in making this forum a success!

 

What Metaverse Standards Forum may mean for you?

There is a deliberate effort to establish common standards for technology and goods relevant to the metaverse, as evidenced by the association of some of the largest names in the sector. Users might notice products that are more generally usable across different platforms as a result of the companies agreeing on unified standards. These products might share certain technological and innovative traits. The big names teaming up might also aid in controlling the price of developing some of these products separately.

 

What is Metaverse?

For those who are unclear what the Metaverse is, it is a general phrase that mainly refers to communal virtual worlds that anybody can visit online. The phrase can be used to describe digital environments that have been enhanced with augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality (VR) (AR). The virtual worlds found in video games, where players control a character that can move around and communicate with other players, are one example.

Additionally, there is a particular kind of metaverse that makes use of blockchain technology. In these, users can use cryptocurrency to purchase virtual real estate and other digital goods. A few science fiction books and movies are also set in fully developed metaverses, alternative digital worlds that are identical to the real world.
