Elon Musk’s TERRIFYING WARNING For The METAVERSE
You may have heard about something called the #metaverse in recent months. Perhaps you’ve heard that the internet will be replaced by the metaverse. Maybe we’re all meant to live there. Perhaps Facebook is attempting to seize control. Is it possible that it has something to do with NFTs?
But what’s really happening here is that Facebook Inc, under fire from regulators and lawmakers over its business practices, is planning to rebrand itself with a new name that focuses on the metaverse. Now, to just a common user of Facebook or a layman it may look like a souped-up version of Virtual Reality (VR) – but some people think the metaverse could be the future of the internet. To be more general, if you are tired of being at home and can’t even go outside, you can spend your day as an avatar going to parties on remote islands, boarding a yacht, or flying in a rocket, as if you were obscenely wealthy and all this just by entering the metaverse and wearing a headset and gear that blocks out the real world.
Indeed, it is thought that it might be to VR what the present smartphone is to the 1980s’ cumbersome mobile phones. Instead of using a computer, you may use a headset to visit a virtual world that connects many digital worlds in the metaverse. Unlike existing VR, which is mostly utilised for gaming, this virtual environment might be used for anything – work, play, concerts, movie trips, or simply hanging out. Now why would the billionaire tech enthusiast, #ElonMusk, warn about such a thing? Dr. David Reid, Professor of AI and Spatial Computing at Liverpool Hope University, thinks it will change our lives just like the internet did. He said: “The metaverse has huge implications – it comes with fantastic advantages and terrifying dangers.
He’s also concerned about possible hazards. The #AI expert is concerned about the massive amount of data that can be accessed through hacking. He also worries that avatars might be hacked, putting you in contact with hackers instead of individuals you know and trust. The metaverse’s ultimate goal is mixed reality, not merely virtual reality or mixed reality (MR). It’s about integrating the digital and physical worlds. This blend may eventually be so good and pervasive that the virtual and real worlds become indistinguishable. And there’s a huge demand for that. Whoever has hold of it has influence over your entire reality.
