The metaverse and digital twin technology concept might seem like a sci-fi babble, but these digital technologies are the future of the internet, which will revolutionize the digital world.
Tech giants like Meta and Microsoft claim the metaverse to be the future of the internet. If that is the case, one thing is sure, the day-to-day activities and objects we handle in the physical world need to be made present in the virtual world of the metaverse.
For example, a proud owner of a Nike Air Jordan would love to have a virtual replica of the physical product available in the metaverse. The virtual world avatar can wear the virtual Air Jordan in the virtual world. This virtual replica of a physical product is its digital twin. The digital twin can share the same properties as the physical product, such as uniqueness, rarity, fungibility, etc. Digital twin technology can replicate dimensionally precise real-world objects in the virtual world.
Metaverse and Digital Twin can make virtual world experiences go beyond our imagination by creating replicas of the real world. Imagine entering a virtual clothing store and trying on the clothes before buying them. I am sure you would like to have your avatar with your actual measurements. Yes, this can be made possible from the measurement data taken from your photos on your phone. Another example would be a meeting happening in the metaverse world, which can be more productive if the participants could interact with the exact replicas of the company’s equipment and information system. These properties of digital twin technology make it an essential part of the metaverse world. Whether in the commercial sectors or the physical world, the benefits and uses of the digital twin in the metaverse world are just being explored and discovered.
