The Metaverse

   2021    Technology
The metaverse is an environment where humans interact socially and economically through a software in cyberspace, which acts as a metaphor for the real world, but without its limitations. The metaverse is generally composed of multiple three-dimensional, shared and persistent virtual spaces linked to a perceived virtual universe. This virtual world is often facilitated by the use of virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) headsets and avatars. The Metaverse is the successor to the internet. It will change the lives of almost every human on the planet.

Space Warfare

   2021    Technology
Space. Gone are the bayonets and pistols, the bows and arrows, the slingshots and stones of past warfare.

Now we are racing toward a new domain. How we use space will decide our Earthly fate, a future determined not by any previous war.
