Nvidia invents the '3D internet' (and it looks… interesting)

During Nvidia's Siggraph keynote the tech and GPU innovator dropped a lot of jargon, but I think we just glimpsed the future of the internet – and the metaverse. The likes of Pixar, as well as Adobe, Autodesk, Siemens and, yes, Nvidia, are pioneering new tech that will reshape how we use the internet; what they see as a '3D internet'.

The future laid out by Nvidia and its partners is quite something, and even the most metaverse-averse may want to sit up and take note; I mean, when was the last time Pixar got it wrong? (No one mention Lightyear.) If you're asking, 'what is the metaverse?' then read our guide for the detail, but generally we're looking at a new way of interacting with the internet through VR, 3D spaces and connected worlds.
