Abstract

In the past two years, the Metaverse, which has become popular, has attracted a large amount of capital, like Alphabet, META, Tencent, Bytedance. They have all invested a lot of people and money in the development of the Metaverse. But what is the Metaverse, what can the Metaverse bring to the table, and what is the future of the Metaverse? This article studies the history and origin of the concept of the Metaverse, combines the views published by previous people to explore the role of Metaverse for today’s society, and discusses in more depth the research and application of metaverse technology by these tech giants. This article discusses some questions. The first one is how the metaverse is being used by technology companies. Also, the mutual relations like the impact of the current environment on the development of the Metaverse, and the impact of the Metaverse on current social environment. However, some of the problems are not quite clear when we look at them in this day and age, and the Metaverse that people imagine has not yet been realized due to technical shortcomings and software and hardware defects. With the development of time, many technical problems may be solved in the future, and we expect to see the complete Metaverse.
