Decades after its first usage in science fiction, the term ‘Metaverse’ is now infiltrating our reality with countless mentions online and with tech giants making big bets to win the space. Many of us know it’s important, but still might not have a full understanding of what exactly it entails.
Simply put, the Metaverse promises to be a persistent digital reality where social media, online gaming, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and blockchain technologies converge, allowing users to project themselves into an online version of life. To keep up with such rapid changes in human-computer interaction today, UX Designers must adopt a new mindset to design for tomorrow.
In our upcoming event, we’ll be diving into the Metaverse - what was promised, where it is now, and what it could become - and how a UX designer can prepare for the design work of tomorrow. Join Leonard Reese, Experience Design Lead, APAC for SoftServe, as he takes us through why UX Designers need to start paying attention to the Metaverse.
