Meta universe

Meta universe is the Chinese translation of Metaverse. Meta stands for transcendence, verse stands for universe, and the combination of Meta+verse is the existence of transcendence and virtual universe. “Meta universe” is a new world that carries many ideal realization methods of technology, including 5G, VR, AR, blockchain, artificial intelligence, etc. More specifically, “Meta Universe” is to build a new universe through AR and VR technology, applying 5G cloud transmission technology, AI autonomous generation technology, and wearable supporting hardware facilities.

The term meta universe was first proposed by science fiction writer Neal Stephenson in his novel “Big Avalanche” published in 1999. In the novel, people can interact in virtual space with avatars. The meta-universe is a virtual mapping version of the human real world, a man-made virtual parallel world.

Although the concept of meta universe has been around for a long time, it will not really “out of the circle” until 2021. Recently, technology giants such as Microsoft, Apple, Tencent, and Huawei have all stated that they are marching toward exploring the meta-universe. The wave of meta-universe has swept the world, and 2021 has also become the “first year” of its birth.
