S3 E49 | Metaverse of a Time

 

S3 E49 Metaverse of a Time

Discussion topics in this episode:

  • What’s going on so far?

    • Games mostly.
    • Connectedness and some sense of community.
    • Why not university too?
  • Who’s out there right now?
  • What about NFTs?

    • Play to Earn (P2E) options yield in-game coins that can be redeemed for NFTs or other products from in-game stores.
    • Property and skins can be purchased for coins or cash that are backed by NFTs.
    • Some companies are selling their virtual property for the possibility of an NFT in the future.
    • Make sure you know what you’re getting for your USD.
  • Some truly revolutionary aspects of it:

    • No safer way to explore the world of humans out there.
    • No cheaper way to meet people from across the world.
    • It also may be less taxing on the environment than traditional forms of travel. Assuming the cost of energy to run the game or associated blockchains isn’t exorbitant. 
  • Calls to Action:
    • Perhaps watch or read Ready Player One.
    • The easiest way to explore the wide world of the metaverse:

      • PCs.
      • Headsets.
      • Sony is staying in a walled garden, not joining the metaverse.
      • Oculus Quest 2 is the latest Facebook offering.
    • Consider this:

      • Think about how you would want to use the metaverse or see it used. What experiences do you imagine?
      • Pressure and haptic sensor feedback systems are coming online to make it all feel more real.
      • Watch this short clip from PBS Newshour on sensors and rewiring nerves to stir your creative juices.
    • Stay subscribed to Citizens Prerogative and tuned in for future episodes.
