Zuckerberg Reveals the Future of the Metaverse

in #metaverselast year

Zuckerberg... not the most popular guy in web3.

But Does He Deserve the Hate?

Let's be clear right at the start, yall should understand by now that I OBVIOUSLY support open blockchain protocols and would like to see the new internet built on Hive, Ethereum, Wax/EOS, and other protocols like that.

I do think it is useful to listen to someone like Mark Zuckerberg though. He's a fucking genius, dude. That's just the way it is.

You can appreciate Zuckerberg's cutting edge entrepreneurship for the last 15 years without agreeing with him on everything, and/or without wanting Meta to achieve more success or market share.

Zuck's Take on the Metaverse

Zuckerberg had a two hour conversation mostly unedited with Lex Friedman recently. This is very rare, I don't think I have ever seen such a long convo of unedited content between Zuckerberg and anybody else.

There's a ton of interesting knowledge about the real logistics of building the metaverse in this conversation.

Zucks talks about the 5-10 year path towards a more satisfying metaverse experience -- what are the key technological unlocks along the way?

One example he gives is how humans move our eyebrows -- a millimeter movement in a certain direction can be a way to communicate a ton of information about the emotions a person is experience. How can the metaverse allow that kind of communication to exist?

Another tidbit, apparently the angle of our elbows is a big problem for metaverse immersion on a visual level. This is the kind of thing you don't know unless you are actually building.
