The metaverse has emerged as a new application that has captured the world’s attention in recent years. This virtual world that is completely constructed on computers is expected to change the way humans live.
Technological development does not happen overnight; rather, it is a gradual incremental process. Take semiconductors for example, the advancement in scale from microns to nanometers and soon to sub-nanometers has been a journey of more than half a century. Home broadband has evolved from bandwidths of 14.4Kbps to Giga bps in the two decades it took to progress from cable to wireless 5G broadband. New online use cases have emerged on high-speed broadband, which when coupled with innovative technologies such as big data, semiconductors, high speed computing and artificial intelligence, have brought the Internet to the dawn of its next generation, the metaverse.
