The expression "metaverse" was initially begat in Neal Stephenson's original 1992 cyberpunk novel, Snow Crash. In the book, the Metaverse (consistently promoted in Stephenson's fiction) is a common "fanciful spot" that is "made accessible to the general population over the overall fiber-optics organization" and projected onto augmented reality goggles. In it, designers can "construct structures, parks, signs, just as things that don't exist in Reality, for example, huge drifting overhead light shows, uncommon neighborhoods where the principles of three-dimensional spacetime are disregarded, and free-battle zones where individuals can go to chase and kill one another."
Meta (earlier Facebook) CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his associates referenced "metaverse" 80+ occasions in less than an hour and a half during last week's Facebook Connect feature show, where the organization reported its new name. Yet, Stephenson has made obviously "there has been zero correspondence among me and FB and no business relationship." That implies Facebook's understanding of "the metaverse" may wind up being very not the same as what Stephenson initially portrayed.
