It is no news that humanity has always thought of ways to make life simpler and less complex. These thoughts and desires have propelled man into a series of inventions aimed at achieving simplicity and luxury. We can see this from the invention of aeroplanes by the Wright Brothers, to Charles Babbage who invented the computer to Alexander Graham Bell who is credited with inventing the telephone. Al such inventions have allowed man to invent as much as the mind can conceive; this has led to the invention of Artificial Intelligence (Al), Advanced Robotics, and now, the Metaverse.
