I’m not convinced that Metaverse will ever be viable

I am both a technical journalist and a technology enthusiast. You’d think this would give me a better understanding of what the metaverse represents. But as things stand, I don’t understand the tech industry’s desire to turn the metaverse into something. We get sold this noble idea of ​​a shared virtual reality without anyone knowing what it is. I would even argue that the companies promoting the metaverse are just as ignorant.

A few weeks ago I attended a press event for the recently announced Meta Quest Pro. The primary focus of this $1,499 product is to enable professionals to work and meet in virtual environments. This new VR headset is an objective improvement over Meta Quest 2 due to its improved tracking capabilities, which can better capture facial and hand movements. Everything is very impressive.
