$1 billion to create a virtual metaverse/$1.000 millones para crear un metaverso virtual

in #science18 days ago


Virtual reality is still the pending subject of disruptive technologies, for years we have been promised immersive virtual environments indistinguishable from reality and in the end all we have is a super orthopedic device that not only does not fool anyone but also produces dizziness to users.

La realidad virtual sigue siendo la asignatura pendiente de las tecnologías disruptivas, desde hace años se nos prometen entornos virtuales inmersivos indistinguibles de la realidad y al final todo lo que tenemos en un artilugio super ortopédico que no solo no engaña a nadie sino que además produce mareos a los usuarios.

But deep down we all know that the necessary hardware is complex but it is already being developed and in the end it will come and revolutionize our existence, that is why Epic Games the creator of Fortnite has called a financing round for the creation of a virtual parallel universe, with which he has managed to raise 1,000 million dollars.

Pero en el fondo todos sabemos que el hardware necesario es complejo pero ya se está desarrollando y al final llegará y revolucionará nuestra existencia, por eso la compañía Epic Games creadora de Fortnite ha convocado una rueda de financiación para la creación de un universo paralelo virtual, con la que ha conseguido recaudar 1.000 millones de dólares.

With the financing of a group of investors among which is Sony that participates with 200 million dollars, they intend to create a virtual metaverse formed by interconnected parallel virtual worlds in which we could live as if it were the real world in the purest style of the film Matrix.

This in principle does not seem anything new, you will all remember Second Life that came on the market in 2003, a virtual world in which you can buy a house or even start your business and get real money and that even at the time of its launch it moved to social and political figures to be promoted in this medium.

Esto en principio no parece nada nuevo, todos recordaréis Second Life que salió al mercado en 2003, un mundo virtual en el que uno puede comprar una casa o incluso montar su negocio y obtener dinero real y que incluso en el momento de su lanzamiento movió a personajes sociales y políticos a promocionarse en este medio.

The difference with this metaverse project is, on the one hand, that it aims to be an open project available to everyone, that does not depend on any large company and on the other hand that the technology we have now, both in terms of software and hardware It seems like magic compared to what we had in 2003.

La diferencia con este proyecto de metaverso es, por una parte, que pretende ser un proyecto abierto al alcance de todos, que no dependa de ninguna gran compañía y por otra parte que la tecnología que tenemos ahora, tanto en lo relativo a software como hardware, parece magia comparada con la que teníamos en 2003.


In this metaverse they intend to create realistic digital human beings with whom to interact as well as avatars of the "real" characters, a world in which we can live, work, maintain relationships with other virtual beings, buy a house or set up a virtual restaurant in the just way as we would in the real world.

En este metaverso pretenden crear seres humanos digitales realistas con los que poder interactuar así como avatares de los personajes "reales", un mundo en el que podremos vivir, trabajar, mantener relaciones con otros seres virtuales, comprarnos una casa o poner un restaurante virtual del mismo modo que lo haríamos en el mundo real.

This is still something very incipient and will be very rough but surely within 50 years it will be indistinguishable from reality, which leads us directly to wonder if we really all live in a simulation created on a computer of a civilization older and wiser than ours if we are able to do it, why should we be the first.

Esto todavía es algo muy incipiente y será muy tosco pero seguramente dentro de 50 años sea indistinguible de la realidad lo que nos lleva directamente a pensar si realmente todos nosotros vivimos en una simulación creada en un ordenador de una civilización más antigua y sabia que la nuestra, si nosotros somos capaces de hacerlo por que habíamos de ser los primeros.

Hola @mauromar debe ser genial, aunque en los juegos online si no te pones pila terminas perdiendo monedas imagino que en estos metaversos es igual, espero que acepten hive.

We are not far from this... The Internet has made us live part of this virtual reality .. for example, what is happening here... We do not live with each other but we have a relationship between us and we have virtual images on each person here .. there is the strong and the distinguished and there is the creative And there is the destroyer and there are those like me who want to build a new life here to escape from his painful reality

with the right people like you heheh
