I’m not convinced the metaverse will ever be viable

I’m both a tech journalist and tech enthusiast. You’d think this would give me a better understanding of what the metaverse represents. But as things stand, I don’t get the tech industry’s desire to make the metaverse a thing. We’re being sold this lofty idea of a shared virtual reality without anyone knowing what it is. I’d even argue the companies promoting the metaverse are equally clueless.

A couple of weeks ago, I attend a press event for the recently announced Meta Quest Pro. The main purpose of this $1,499 product is to allow professionals to work and meet in virtual environments. This new VR headset is an objective improvement over the Meta Quest 2 due to its enhanced tracking features that can better capture one’s facial and hand gestures. It’s all very impressive.
