What is the Metaverse – The Beginning of a new Era?

  • Panel discussion
Am Olympiapark 1, 80809 München

Metaverse & Co. - The Future of Human Interaction.
It's just the beginning, even though writers and thinkers had already pitched the Metaverse idea decades ago. But it is coming with giant strides.

This year, the FUTURE FORUM by BMW Welt is once again dedicated to the most relevant topics of the future. At the MUNICH CREATIVE BUSINESS WEEK (MCBW) in May, we focus on how we can shape this future through design and technology. With our exciting guests, we talk about the Metaverse and the merging of the real and the virtual world. About how innovation and technology can create new immersive experiences for customers and the opportunities and challenges that arise.
What will our lives look like in the future, and will we even spend them in a virtual parallel universe? How can innovative design and digitalisation make future product experiences even more personal and interactive?
Session 1:
Digital art NFTs are auctioning for several million dollars at Christie´s in New York. Major investors are buying "land" in digital worlds and building virtual properties there. And even the Facebook Group is now called Meta because Mark Zuckerberg is so passionate about the Metaverse.
But what is the Metaverse, and will we really spend a lot of our time there in the future? What opportunities and risks do virtual worlds hold? What rules and ethical principles will apply? How will this technology change our civil society?
Dive with us into virtual worlds and find out where the journey will take us in the future.
