What are these emerging technologies?
They are augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), mixed reality (MR), and extended reality (XR) technologies. There are also technologies associated with A.I. and virtual humans, which I will expound on another day.
These emerging technologies play important roles in Metaverse storytelling and the creation of immersive and interactive experiences. They provide a plethora of exciting opportunities for crafting and marketing in the Metaverse. They also enable the superimposition of digital content onto the physical world, the creation of fully immersive virtual environments, and all things “phygital”– defined as the seamless integration of virtual and physical elements.
Here’s a simple definition of each:
AR has the potential to improve our physical environment by adding layers of information and interactive elements, and it has numerous applications in areas such as education, entertainment, and commerce.
MR has the potential to create truly immersive and interactive experiences that blur the line between the virtual and the real, and has a wide range of applications in fields such as education, entertainment, and design.
XR technologies have the potential to enhance and augment our physical world in a wide range of ways, and are expected to play a significant role in the development and evolution of the Metaverse.
Overall, AR, VR, MR, and XR technologies offer a host of exciting possibilities for crafting and marketing in the Metaverse. They all play a significant role in the creation of immersive and interactive experiences in this virtual world.
