The metaverse is not a place, but rather a way of using technology. Despite the hype, this is not a new concept. What this term really refers to is moving between virtual worlds, where we can meet via Zoom, buy goods, scroll Instagram, and play games, among other things. There will be a gradual increase in the immersiveness of digital platforms, not a sudden leap into the metaverse. To get the most out of these experiences, you’ll need augmented reality glasses (yep, they’re making a comeback!) and virtual reality (VR) headsets. To put it another way, this means that the limitations of those technologies will also apply to the metaverse.

Metaverse be Accessible As VR Experiences

Consider the use of virtual reality headsets. After decades of development, they are still prohibitively expensive and bulky to wear, and their content is primarily designed for people who can see and hear. Even the legs and arms can be used to feed information into virtual games and activities as immersive VR experiences become more complex. Is it possible to see or hear or speak or move without difficulty? What if you have a disorder that affects your ability to process sensory information, or if you are extremely anxious? What if you’re one of the many (mostly female) virtual reality users who complain of motion sickness?

What if you don’t have access to a High-Speed Internet Service?

That means, in many cases, that the technology isn’t right for you at this time.

Disability gamers have complained about this for years, and as the metaverse expands, so will the problems with inaccessible hardware and software in the tech industry. There will be a large and growing segment of the population who will be left out if a large portion of future life is conducted in the metaverse, including work, social gatherings, and dates. Garbage in, garbage out, goes the old adage among computer programmers. As a result, an inaccessible product has been created.

The metaverse, on the other hand, has the potential to make our world more accessible. Consider how much easier it has become for so many people to see a doctor since the pandemic began because insurance and health-care providers saw the value in providing care remotely. When the industry reaches a crisis point, it shows what can be done to improve access to health care.

It may seem like a long way off, but this early stage is critical to ensuring that no one is left behind as the technologies mature. It is one of the great virtues of virtual reality (VR) that it allows us to experience things that we cannot in real life. The “empathy machine” got its moniker for a reason. Empathy is a virtue for those who work in the metaverse, and it’s especially important for those who create virtual worlds.
