Facebook to work on creating digital universe

Facebook Inc. Augmented and Virtual Reality Vice President Andrew Bosworth stated the company will establish a production team to create a "metaverse," a concept that will offer digital worlds more people can inhabit at once.

"Today [Facebook's subsidiaries] Portal and Oculus can teleport you into a room with another person, regardless of physical distance, or to new virtual worlds and experiences," Bosworth wrote. "But to achieve our full vision of the Metaverse, we also need to build the connective tissue between these spaces – so you can remove the limitations of physics and move between them with the same ease as moving from one room in your home to the next."

Earlier this month, it was reported Facebook is going to bring its cloud gaming service to Apple Inc.'s devices via a web app.
