Meta (Facebook) has launched the Horizon Worlds VR platform designed for the Meta Quest headset. This is the first step towards the metaverse that awaits us in the future.
Mark Zuckerberg, along with other technological pioneers, is talking more and more enthusiastically about building the so-called metaverse, a new virtual space also called the “embodied Internet”.
In the modern sense, the Metaverse describes the union of a real, expanded, and virtual world into a unified reality in which people can live a full life, where a separate economy operates and is not governed by a particular society.
To connect to Horizon Worlds World, you must have a Quest VR headset and a Facebook account. You can meet other people in the virtual world. You will create an avatar and you can move around the virtual city and communicate virtually with other users.
