FutureTales Lab Explores Plausible Metaverse Realities
FutureTales Lab, a futurology center set up by MQDC, gathers, analyses, and interprets data to envision and co-create alternative futures.
Future Studies is a way of looking at the world and events and making sense of what the future may hold. It is within our investigations to be aware of and knowledgeable about technology trends and how they might impact our futures – so, the iterations of the internet and metaverse are among our many research interests. As evolution is part of every industry, it is important to understand the ecosystem in which we operate.
“The need to change, adapt, and progress is ever-present; but it is important to do so with futures-thinking and knowledge,” said Dr Karndee Leopairote, Executive Vice President, FutureTales Lab by MQDC.
“Our lab’s exploration of the metaverse has resulted in 2 preliminary reports. The first one explores four plausible scenarios of the metaverse on the premise of decentralisation, mapped against the two spectrums of hardware and software. The second is a thought experiment on ‘What If the Metaverse Could Disprove Long-Held Theories?’ The reports are an invitation to contemplate and visualise how the integration of related technologies may impact our everyday lives in the coming years.”
