What will the Metaverse bring? Some parts of it are already here with for instance gaming where you can be present in the Metaverse by your avatar. But what will it look like in 2040? A majority of experts say that by then, the Metaverse will for a half billion people or more globally be a well-functioning part of daily life.

US-based Pew Research Center and Elon University have collected forecasts from 624 technology innovators, developers, business and policy leaders, researchers and activists.

The research center says that early 2020s technological advances and societal transformations brought about by the pandemic have pushed the development of the Metaverse to the forefront, prompting predictions that the metaverse is “the future of the internet” and “the next internet battleground”.

Key conclusions:

  • 54% of the experts said that they expect by 2040 the Metaverse WILL be a much-more-refined and truly fully-immersive, well-functioning aspect of daily life for a half billion or more people globally.
  • XR will develop fast because of its massive commercial possibilities.
