“Metaverses” are “digital worlds” where real people, places, and things are represented by digital objects and where consumers are able to hop between different digital experiences.
In the metaverse, physical and digital personas of people become a unified reality. It is not an alternate universe, but rather a parallel extended universe.
In many ways, Microsoft Teams or Zoom is a form of a metaverse. You are “there” in the room, but you may be a static image, an avatar, or a live video. Metaverse is a broader context for bringing people together. It can be used for many things: meetings, visiting a factory floor, onboarding, or training. In fact, almost every HR- and talent-related program can be redesigned for the metaverse to provide a fully immersive experience.
