每日英語跟讀 Ep.K259: What is the metaverse?


The metaverse is a virtual universe that blends aspects of digital technologies including video-conferencing, games like Minecraft or Roblox, cryptocurrencies, email, virtual reality, social media and live-streaming. Quite how these pieces will fit together is a work in progress, but some tech giants already see it as the future of human communication and interaction. It’s “the next frontier,” Mark Zuckerberg said when he changed his company’s name from Facebook Inc. to Meta Platforms Inc.


What will it look like? It may be easier to grasp the concept by first saying what it isn’t: It’s not a single product, it’s not a game, and it’s not being created by one company. Rather, it’s akin to a 3D World Wide Web, where businesses, information and communication tools are immersive and interoperable.

元宇宙會是什麼樣子?要理解這個概念,或許先說明它不是什麼比較容易:它不是單一產品,不是一種遊戲,也不是由一家公司所創建的。相反地,它像是三度空間 的全球資訊網,其中的商家、訊息與通訊工具,是沉浸式、可互操作的。

In a way it’s a digital facsimile of how we live in the physical world. Just as you might create a document in Microsoft Word and send it via Gmail to a colleague to read on an iPad, items in the metaverse should be able to move across an ecosystem of competing products, holding their value and function. An original piece of digital art bought as a non-fungible token, or NFT, from Company A, say, should be displayable on the virtual wall of a house in a game made by Company B.

它有點像是我們現實世界生活方式的數位複製品。正如您可以在Microsoft Word中建立文件,並通過Gmail發送出去,讓同事可以在iPad上閱讀一樣,元宇宙中的物件應能夠在競爭對手產品的生態系統中移動,而保留其價值與功能。例如,從A公司購買的作為非同質化代幣(或稱NFT)的原創數位藝術作品,應該可以在B公司製作的遊戲中顯示在虛擬屋牆上。

The metaverse won’t reach its full potential — millions of people accessing and living in the virtual world anywhere, at any time — without ultrafast Internet. That’s why mobile carriers around the world are spending billions of dollars to build 5G networks.


The rise of the metaverse also presents a tangle of legal and regulatory issues to be resolved. Some of the thorniest issues around the metaverse revolve around users’ personal data and privacy rights.

元宇宙的興起也帶來一連串法律與監管問題,有待解決。與元宇宙相關的一些最棘手問題,主要是跟用戶個資與隱私權有關。Source article:
