Experts are certain that metaverses full-fledged will be available, but it won’t happen quickly
Despite the metaverse boom in recent months, it is not realistic to expect fully-fledged metaverses to be available anytime soon. Experts in the industry believe that this is impossible because of a lack of technical skills and user habits.
«I doubt that fully-fledged VR universes in which people will live over the next few years will be created. There are four main types of technology: voice control, screen, augmented reality, and then full-fledged VR. Many technological barriers and user behaviors still need to be overcome before we can move on to the next.
«Interaction in VR requires expensive and large devices. The widespread development of 5G communication networks (5G), is a drastic change in people’s established habits. Because the VR user experience is still far from intuitive, in contrast to the usual interaction via smartphones and more recent experience with voice assistants,» expert says.
Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, sees a bright future for the metaverses but isn’t yet ready to predict their full-fledged presence in our lives.
