At the end of the year, everybody speaks about a new world, the metaverse. It is not something new, Ready Player One, a novel from 2011 and also a film from 2018, already imagine how it could be and there is a lot of software available and videogames that have their own virtual world. Still, big companies have started to invest a lot of money in it, so soon, it will be more accessible for everybody.
Virtual worlds and mixed realities have a high potential to do what we can do right now in the real world but without the need of travel, visit the beach, walk in a forest or enjoy the time with family and friends that live far away, and the feeling is quite similar that we almost believe that we are there with them, except that we can’t touch them. Not only that, it will have a high capacity for education and as a tool in many sectors.
Nobody imagines that we could speak directly with someone on the other side of the world or even see them doing a video call some decades ago. It is another way of communication, but not the only one.
I will continue learning to give the best for both worlds. We will enjoy the virtual world, while we will keep enjoying the real one as always. Have a look at the next video to discover the possibilities to draw and paint using Tilt Brush 🙂
Happy new year!
