The past nearly two years have completely transformed the global workforce, including how we work, where we work, and the tools we use to be productive.
Among the technological trends that have emerged in popularity during this time has been the metaverse, which is a digital universe that melds virtual and augmented reality to build an immersive experience.
Formerly, this technology was used in video game platforms. However, companies like Meta (formerly known as Facebook) have kicked off the competition to create this world on a scale that has never been seen before.
Although Meta announced its commitment to the metaverse to get ahead of the trend, other companies from various industries have started working on their own contributions to the metaverse.
Not only will this technology impact how people interact with one another on a daily basis, it is expected to fully transform the way we work.
For instance, rather than hopping on a Zoom call for meetings, workers will be able to have realistic, three-dimensional interactions with their colleagues all by wearing a VR headset.
The metaverse as a concept is still in its infancy, but the technology has the ability to create brand new opportunities for people, particularly those working from home.
