The Metaverse is now one of those buzzwords we can expect to hear about for some time to come. With that in mind, I just finished reading my latest book titled The Metaverse Handbook. The book covers the following:
- What the metaverse is, why you should care about it, and how to build your metaverse strategy
- The history of the metaverse and primers on critical technologies driving the metaverse, including non-fungible tokens, XR, the blockchain, and web3
- How to unearth unique metaverse opportunities in digital communities, commerce, and immersive experiences
Given the experiences of the last 2.5 years, an ability to feel like we are together when we are not takes on more importance. Renji Bijoy, Immersed VR’s founder and CEO went as far as to say that VR is less of a novelty and more of a quality-of-life tool. But as with everything else, there are paths that enhance humanity and those that diminish it. The book explores both the possibilities and the challenges. I have added to my book library.
