Enter the Metaverse — the first app for free. Just whether it’s worth wasting your time…
You can now enter the world of Meta, prepared by Facebook. As long as you live on the right side of the globe, have the right equipment, and dream of playing a game that resembles a poor relative of Minecraft.
The vision of the metaverse, unveiled by Mark Zuckerberg barely two months ago, has divided experts into two teams. One sees the Metaverse as the future; the next step after the Internet, from which we cannot escape. And even if that future takes longer to build than Zuck predicts, the vision of an intersecting mixed and virtual reality is, according to many experts, the inevitable future. The other, on the other hand, believes that the Metaverse is another misfire along the lines of Second Life, and a dream money launderer, judging by the fact that yachts and servants are already being sold in a virtual world that doesn’t yet exist.
Regardless of which side we stand on — Meta is already running. The machine has started, no one can stop it, and anyone over the age of 18 who lives in the United States or Canada can already see what kind of future Facebook has in store for us.
Horizon Worlds in the metaverse available to all. Under a few conditions.
Yesterday Meta announced that the first of the metaverse’s big interactive apps, Horizon Worlds, has been made available to everyone. For free. There are just a few catches.
The first is the mentioned place of residence. For the time being the application will be available only for residents of the United States and Canada.
The second is the necessary equipment. To operate Horizon Worlds you need Oculus Quest 2 goggles. For some time you will be able to use Oculus Quest 1, but on January 13, 2022, the application will no longer be available for the older generation of VR goggles.
