Who will I be in the metaverse? Virtual identities for the next digital revolution
Immersive technologies are transforming the way we move around the internet. In the future, we will no longer navigate from the other side of the screen, but will be immersed in it, thanks to our virtual identities.
As is already the case in the world of video games, we will use digital versions of ourselves to work, socialise and shop in what is known as the metaverse.
How will this other reality work? How many identities will we choose? Will they be a true reflection of our physical selves or precisely the opposite? What advantages will we see from this new way of relating to each other? What role will design play in the construction of these new worlds?
On 3 November at 6.30 pm, Cai Felip, CEO of Linking Realities (Union Avatars), and Carlos Solana, Innovation Lead de Mediapro, will tackle these questions and more in IED Barcelona’s second Master Talk for 21/22, which will be broadcast on the school’s YouTube channel.
