I still don’t know what metaverse is, but it now has a “standards forum”

PC gamers of a certain age may be reminded of multimedia PC standards. First defined in 1991 by a group of industry heavyweights, it established the benchmark for PCs capable of handling multimedia content. The idea is to make it easier for consumers to understand which PCs can help them enter the exciting new era of CD-ROM technology, and, presumably, give them the confidence to take that step (and spend the money).

Something similar is happening in the metaverse now.Industry heavyweights including Epic Games, Microsoft, Nvidia, Sony, Unity, and of course Meta have come together to build Metaverse Standards Forum (opens in new tab)which will “promote interoperability standards for open virtual worlds”.
