With each passing day, we learned that our technology would slow down or even shut down, making room for newer and more innovative ideas. Of course, businesses, service sellers, product-market will remain the same at the core. But on the outside, we may have to adapt to the next generation of virtual reality.
With this virtual reality, we are not necessarily meaning VR or AR but the virtual world being developed every day. Since the day we started using the web, our virtual countdown started. Now, we are at a state that current-generation technology is helping to provide next-generation tech at a faster pace.
How do businesses survive in this era? During the coronavirus devastating times, many companies shut down. Many temporary and a lot permanently. Firms and people realized the online world is not just for communication but a whole lot more. Mesh for Microsoft Teams, under development for the last twelve years. Meta from the Metaverse, digital interaction, and a few more ideas in a similar category is trending.

It is thought that VR will be a big part of every business in the future. Andrew Hawke, CEO of Mesmerize, talked about MR Mark. He bet his entire company and fortune to build the vast VR-based business empire, which is quite fascinating. Many experts said they are not sure how long till every significant business starts their own VR related platform and exploit the medium.
A recent collaboration with Gucci and Roblox showed us virtual items could outprice real-world products. As virtual products are traceable and unlike designer goods, they won't tear.

No matter where they are around the world, audiences around the clock are free to explore a brand and all its products. Brands can partake in a live together situation without taking the hassle they usually fall in.
We've recently seen the streaming business going through rapid growth. Before that, still, videos were enough to keep us entertained for hours, providing valuable knowledge in some cases.
