Metaverse has been a hot theme in the stock market for the past few years. Let us understand what metaverse maybe before it can go further. In short, many people see the metaverse as a virtual world with an immersive digital interaction experience. This is achieved by using virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). It’s worth noting that many tech companies have started acting to gain a foothold in the virtual world.
For example, Snap (SNAP) recently announced the acquisition of neurotech company NextMind. This will be part of its help to promote long-term AR research in the Snap Lab mainland. With its current structure, NextMind has developed a non-invasive brain-computer interface technology that more easily facilitates hands-free interactions with electronic devices. Therefore, the addition of NextMind is expected to improve the way Snap serves humans through technology.
In addition to Snap, Nvidia (NVDA) has recently introduced new NVIDIA Omniverse features. These features for game developers include updates to Omniverse Audio2Face™, Omniverse Nucleus Cloud, and Omniverse DeepSearch.As a result, it may make it easier for game developers to share assets, classify asset libraries, collaborate, and deploy artificial intelligence to animate facial expressions for characters in new games. In conclusion, there is reason to believe that metaverse will eventually be a part of our lives. So, let’s look at some of the top metaverse stocks in the stock market today.
