TopicAITP Chicago Virtual Event - The Metaverse:  What is it? And should you invest in Virtual Lake Front

“Meta” is an ancient Greek word which meant “beyond” or “after.”  Today, “Metaverse” is used to describe a computer- generated virtual world “beyond” our physical world where individuals live, work, shop and play together. 

We are seeing advertisements on TV & Streaming-Services of individuals using 3D Virtual-Reality Headsets playing games, walking through fantastic colorful worlds, collaborating with others and generally having a “exciting fun filled” time. 

A variety of companies including Meta, which changed its name from Facebook to Meta, Decentraland, The Sandbox and others sell goods, services, performances and even virtual real-estate in their Metaverses. 

  • ·       What are the technical foundations that make the Metaverse possible today? 
  • ·       What is the reality of the Metaverse? 
  • ·       Where is the Metaverse going?
  • ·       And should you buy Virtual Lakefront Property in one of the Metaverses?

In tonight’s talk, Dr. Larry Dribin takes us on a journey to explore the Metaverse.
