Tampa Bay, US (ots)
The Metaverse is a digital space created through the interaction of virtual, augmented and physical reality. In a survey conducted by KnowBe4 in September 2022, 201 people were polled about the metaverse. The majority of respondents have a clear understanding of the Metaverse, with about half envisioning virtual reality. About a tenth think of a pure game world and about 20 percent have never heard of it. Interestingly, for more than a third (35 percent), the benefits of the new digital space prevail. Only a small proportion (14 percent) look critically at the metaverse and only three percent rate it clearly negatively.
The new dimensions that the Metaverse offers in all possible areas of life are not yet used by the majority of the survey participants, some 60 percent, but they plan to participate in the future. Only nine percent are already actively using Metaverse, and about a third of those surveyed have no interest in using it now or in the future.
The new technology brings many opportunities and risks, with respondents divided as to which side has the upper hand. About half of those surveyed see the potential of the Metaverse, particularly in the social field, and 37 percent believe it can bring benefits to society as a whole. 36 percent see the possibility that it can advance science and about a third see it as beneficial across the economic spectrum. Only 18 percent said they don’t see a specific opportunity for the Metaverse in any area.
