The metaverse is not yet a reality, but it could be the next evolution of the internet. The idea is that "extended reality" – the combination of augmented, virtual and mixed reality – will become a key medium for social and business engagement. If you’re interested in technology, you’ve probably heard the buzzword of the moment – "metaverse."
The internet has been built by web developers, the Open Metaverse is being built by game developers. If you start paying attention to it, you’ll notice game engines everywhere, which is especially true for Virtual Environments
The metaverse should improve, rather than replace, human experiences. They are programmed to just help us make life easier and faster not to literally take over everyone's purpose or duty and making them feel they have no use in life due to the fact that even individuals are being replaced at their workplaces by robots and advanced technologies,
The existence of metaverse, I wouln't really say it's being too over hyped due to the fact that many individuals are not yet relly exposed to the internet/metaverse.
The metaverse is also being seen as an obsession due to the fact that most individuals are getting too obsessed to the metaverse day by day. Sometimes, they spend less time with family members due to their obsessions over it. It simply just means that the metaverse could also be seen as a distraction due to the fact that we forget about our main plans and goals in life/in a day and get carried away. Even students can't focus on their studies and homework due to their obsessions over the metaverse.
