"Digital Disruptions has always been in the center of emerging technologies integration, where the metaverse induced smart cities are going to create win-win situation."

In the race towards the future, governments had been making efforts for smart cities until they encountered ‘Metaverse’ Cities, particularly in developing countries, are transitioning from analog/conventional platforms to digital platforms. However ‘Metaverse’ is going to be the new ecosystem for various interactions and a new target for various cities and states to accomplish. It seems that innovations in technology will keep on providing cities with new goals and the quest for attaining new targets will continue. It will not be long until our surroundings will be marked by the presence of robots and the marvels of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

There is a lot of excitement around Metaverse, much of it driven by technology companies preemptively claiming to be Metaverse companies, or creating Metaverse to enhance or augment the digital and physical realities of people. Moreover, activities that currently take place in siloed environments will eventually take place in a single Metaverse, such as:

  • Purchasing outfits and accessories for online avatars

  • Buying digital land and constructing virtual homes

  • Participating in a virtual social experience

  • Shopping in virtual malls via immersive commerce

  • Using virtual classrooms to experience immersive learning

  • Buying digital art, collectibles and assets (NFTs)

  • Interacting with digital humans for onboarding employees, customer service, sales and other business interactions

It is expected that a Metaverse will provide persistent, decentralized, collaborative and interoperable opportunities and business models that will enable organizations to extend digital business.

  • Expand the vision: The future aspirations describe how Smart Cities will look like by the end of the roadmap. It sets the scene for the to-be state for each of the dimensions of Smart Cities.

  • Challenges & Opportunities: Challenges, future state, measure success Challenges in any and all dimensions of Smart Cities that are hindering the adoption. Identify opportunities informed by best practices and stakeholder input.)

Details are scarce in the city’s announcement, but it does provide a glimpse of what the Metaverse could mean for urban life. By some speculative accounts, Big Tech's idealized dream could mean the end of city services like transportation as we know it, and the rise of "virtual teleportation."
