Colombia has established itself at the forefront of innovative methods for conducting out legal processes after recently hosting a trial in the metaverse.
According to a recent story, a Colombian court recently held its first legal trial in the metaverse, with the court magistrate remarking that it felt “more real than a video chat.”
A court case involving players in a traffic conflict was held in the metaverse on February 15 according to a Reuters story that was released on February 24.
The lawsuit, which lasted over two hours and pitted a local transport union against the police, will “partially” proceed in the metaverse. The metaverse is another possible location for the judgment.
In a digital courtroom with Magistrate Maria Quinones Triana clothed in formal black robes, the participants were represented by avatars. Quinones told Reuters that it felt more real than a video chat, making Colombia one of the first nations in the world to test out legal proceedings in the metaverse.
This follows a previous survey conducted by CoinWire on Jan. 16 that revealed 69% of respondents thought the metaverse would eventually change social behaviors as a result of novel ways to entertainment and activities.
The “physical world side” of the metaverse will “emerge in the next 10 years,” according to Cathy Hackl, author of Into the Metaverse.
If that is taken into account, then, according to Hackl, the metaverse will have a significant impact on how we socialize. The World Economic Forum boasted about metaverse experiences in January of this year.
The conference included its own 3D immersive digital sessions, dubbed the “Global Collaboration Village,” where attendees may interact with the forum.
