However, the lack of knowing exactly what the Metaverse is has not stopped the buzz that has built up around it.

Facebook has gone as far as changing their name to Meta and acquiring Oculus, a leader in immersive virtual reality technology, for 2 billion dollars in 2014. The patent data shows that there has been an increasing level of interest by companies to control the Metaverse/virtual reality market.
