The term Metaverse was born in the 1992 science fiction novel Snow Crash. This novel depicts a huge virtual reality world, where people use digital avatars to control behavior and compete with each other to improve their status. Up to now, what the novel describes is an advanced future world. Regarding the "Metaverse", the more recognized source of thought is from the novel True Names, published in 1981, by American mathematician and computer expert Professor Vernor Vinge. This novel creatively conceived a virtual world entered by a brain-computer interface to get the sensory experience.
At present, Metaverse in the practical sense refers to the next-generation Internet form derived from the integration of VR/AR technology, the Internet, games, and social networks.
