    Ever notice how most people forced into zoom meetings block video and audio when given the opportunity? Yeah, we damn sure don’t want to be in a vr room with everybody.

      @Henry Heitmann Very true. That is the solution. And it is very simple.
      But will they listen? Will people walk away from the allure of this technology. No. They will embrace this coming dystopia with open arms. They will pay for people to spy on them, just as we have paid for phones and computers and tablets which spy on us as we talk right here on Clip-Share.

      @Ghost-User Well, there is a very simple solution to that: Bring everyone together in a room. A real room.

      @Art Feierman With retina tracking and ai analytics, you can tell when a person has taken a substance from coffee to how much sugar they eat, to how hydrated they are. You can tell when they last had intercourse, and how long ago, and if they “like their partners”. You can tell their blood sugar and their blood pressure. You can tell if they trust you or distrust you as a boss or employer. You can tell if they are enjoying the meeting or believe in the company policy or politics or not.
      No longer does the workplace become about *WORK* in this coming reality, but this cult like dystopian environment of biometrics becomes a reality where you literally can be let go for “thought crimes” because “your retinas show a lack of interest”. It isn’t about a person’s *WORK* quality or output in this biometric dystopia, it’s about Ais *perceptions* of imperceptible biological signals and your entire life can be destroyed because you have a light allergy and the ai mistakes your red eyes for “regular intoxication” or your facial expressions are read as “insincere are untrustworthy” just because the ai decides it is so. Or that you “are a kller or committed a crime” because facial recognition mistakes you for someone on a security camera or database.
      No. There is zero good in this tech. There is no legal protection in place for this overreaching dystopian future. And zero positive outcomes from its full scale implementation. I reject this future entirely.

    • Ghost-User

      @Art Feierman The problem is the invasive nature of modern employers and the violations of basic human rights this technology opens up. You see prior to the last few years it was highly illegal and unacceptable to install spyware on a person’s laptop and cell phones and the person doing so would be arrested. Now to give an employer your retinas and eye tracking and biometrics and the ability to track your biometrics 24/7 while working at home or at work is absolutely unacceptable. Employees have to give up 100% of their work devices to be watched even when used off of work. That means every single personal interaction with friends and partners and family is tracked biometrically for that employees entire life. Even if you change companies Meta could “offer your new employer your lifetime records”. True dystopia.

      @Ghost-User Well, I agree, there are plenty of folks that don't like zoom or other conference calls, and those who don't even like voice only. After all, even without having an image or avatar, what you say, is on display. That said, lots of folks don't mind. BTW re your trip to the bathroom, that's well within the ability of VR to control, I imagine you can choose to remain a head - stationary...
      Perhaps the important question is this: For those that do not like Zoom, Teams, Skype etc, would they, be it for business or other, rather do VR or "live" zoom, etc... While Marques touts the great facial detail etc, that should be very controllable. If you do, however, that limits the effectiveness of seeing expressions as part of understanding the message.

    I totally agree with you and this is also the problem with Big tech now. The players have so much control over the market. I am a big believer in decentralization and if the market allows for meta to succeed in this endeavor we're going to have the same problem we have now of privacy violations as well as the negative effects of manipulation these tech giants have on society.

    The face and eye tracking is next level data collection. If Meta knows what you look at, what content makes you react, what content invokes certain emotions linked to facial expressions, that is data better than even Google has on us now. That's some scary shit imo.

    I love this channel! Recently, I have been wondering: who is waiting for Metaverse, actually? Whenever I hear or read about it, I always bump into the keyword "immersive." That sounds cool but WHO wants to be immersed?
    People whom I know, especially those who are active in blockchains, bet on *others" to be the future Metaverse users. No one wants to live in a matrix - but many want to make money on (imaginary) people who do.

    • Art Feierman
      Art Feierman 11 days ago +1

      Well VR (and AR) have a lot of potential benefits. I also imagine that a lot of disabled people will find a kind of freedom there?
      As to immersing. VR is no view of the real world. But here are a few examples of people who love immersion: Start with home theater owners. As that was my business, I can say nothing like having a nice 100" or 140" screen to watch movies. I still don't get watching Avatar or Star wars on an iPhone, or even a 65" TV... Too small to do the content justice. A lot of folks keep buying bigger and bigger "TVs" because they like greater immersion. In my theater, darkened, you are barely aware of the room, thanks to both immersive visuals - and sound. Remember mono? Stereo (better immersion) is preferred, and hey, nothing like full Dolby Atmos but that's overkill for most... Concerts: People prefer (if they can afford) to sit closer. That puts you closer to the "action." In a typical venue, if you are in the 5th row or the 30th row, the sound will likely be about identical (I always go for the center seats,, of course). The point is, what's the fun of viewing the band from 250 feet back... just my 2cents
      PS I am waiting. current Oculus and other sets, I think are still too low resolution. 1080p? 8K is probably where we need to be since we want 110 - 150 degrees of view vs say 40 degrees watching a computer monitor.

    great video, am with you 100% on one company controlling everything is not good for the people. I have a family member who facebook account got disabled for nor reason & since facebook also owns whatsapp & instagram, he has been locked out of all 3 apps without a possibility of getting in touch with support to clarify the identity & resolve any violations if any.
    Life isn’t going to end because of it but it’s not fare when you get kicked out without a possibility to defend yourself against bot acting as a judge and wrongfully accusing users and disabling accounts.

  • Micah Bragg
    Micah Bragg 29 days ago +2

    Seems like most of the time doing your work in VR or AR would add to the work you have to do. Adding more animations, more details, is not actually the best for getting info fast and accurate or creating things without being an artist or computer programmer. What I'm saying is that most of the info I interact with, the most important info, the most helpful info, is all text based. Writing words remains king for the very reason that it is the most stripped down version of communication and yet also nearly unlimited in what can be created and described. A screen connected to the internet is extremely useful as it connects me to text more easily. I'm not sure VR improves on that. So why would I bring it into my work?

    Very simply, I've yet to feel fully immersed into a VR headset, but I would get fully immersed into a good MMORPG game "developed for the VR". That's my problem, there isn't the ultimate "Sword Art Online" experience, and not enough money poured into development, as it's being poured into hardware. There's just a whole lot of arcade-y games, casual games, and a few recent good single player campaign games like Half Life: Alyx. As for MMO, there's Minecraft, VRChat, Zenith and a few decent mentions, but it's not there yet imo. More tech, tracking, etc. nice hardware, but without well funded AAA class MMO experiences / software, it still leaves me yearning. That's why I'd rather play FFXIV / WoW on my PC, than plug in my Quest 2. It's too much effort to me, for experiences that still haven't reached the level as many PC games I play. The quality and level of development on PC offers me more immersion in that sense than my VR headset.

    • Devouring_One

    I have been following metaverse for a long time now. The reason why I think VR/AR is the future is because I truly believe it is the next iteration of tech for phones, maybe not completely replacing, but an extension.
    Every new development that had become essential in every day life has solved fundamental problems for us humans, which are productivity and connecting with other humans.
    1) Cars/Trains/Planes (evolved from horses): Faster times between destinations increasing productivity and increasing interactions between humans (a need within humans).
    2) Internet + computers: Making it easier to connect with other humans and increasing productivity through access of information.
    3) Regular phones and smartphones (extension of internet/computers). Same reason as above.
    As an extension of the current internet ecosystem (computers, 4G/5G, smartphones), I think VR/AR can increase productivity further, and increase our connections to other humans. For this reason, I do see it becoming integrated with the human lifestyle.
    Two very interesting concepts:
    1) Accessibility: Those who are normally incapable of going to a concert, movie, etc. due to accessibility restrictions, can use VR/AR to still enjoy an immersive experience, or continue to work effectively.
    2) Remote control/work: Work from anywhere, anytime, controlling a robot/workstation, or anything in-between to still achieve your goals in your personal life or at work, whilst being able to travel, or live the nomad life. Potentially, further globalizing the world?
    I agree with the problem of meta controlling everything, but apple should offer as good initial competition, but there are still others like Microsoft (holo lens) and google (google glasses) that can easily enter the market as well. Microsoft has acquired a ton of VR/AR companies as well. I think Meta's real goal is to establish an app store, hoping it will be one of the most used, for AR/VR and profit that way, similar to how apple and android profit massively off of their app stores. Also, let's not forget that there are successful Chinese companies already that will definitely be adding to competition, and will be used in China solely, so the government can control the medium.

    • Devouring_One
      Devouring_One 27 days ago +2

      @Joseph King I think Facebook has held back VR about as much as they've pushed it forward, primarily because they take a bunch of software developers and pushed them into an overbloated project that hasn't successfully created leg IK/tracking, instead of game development where they started and where they're experienced.
      VR will continue to climb, but it's possible facebook will die before it gets where they want it to, because they overinvested and failed to optimize the fruits of their labor in sensible stepping stones, instead throwing it all at owning a single digital 'magnum opus' that failed to materialize.

      The metaverse is the final boss matrix. It’s not something you wanna comply with.. THEY want to persuade YOU to submit to the hive mind, internet of bodies, transhumanism, AI “utopia” but what they don’t tell you, is how it’ll end.. well, the Bible tells us ! The Holy Spirit (the force that restrains evil from completely consuming the earth) will be removed from the earth, in time for the 7 year great tribulation. Once the Holy Spirit is removed, CERN will have a major part to play in releasing the fallen angels/demons from the bottomless pit. The Antichrist will be revealed to the entire earth and will proclaim to be God - many will believe the lie and will worship him. He will then establish a peace treaty for 7 years which will be broken after approx. 3 years. This will happen once the earth reaches complete chaos (order out of chaos - Freemason agenda) in which he will usher in the “solution to all the worlds problems” The Beast system (one world currency, one world religion and the mark of the beast) - the new world order. Satan and evil will have complete control of the vessels that took the mark of the beast and they will wage war against Christ upon His second coming. After all this is said and done, judgement day will come.. do not be deceived. Repent and turn to Jesus to be saved. ✝️🕊️Brain chips, hand chips, quantum dot tattoos are coming.. it’ll no longer be a conspiracy theory !

    If you face scan yourself for the whole virtual avatar that looks just like you, then couldn't someone use that to impersonate you in a Metaverse "zoom" call? The technology already exists to have one person's voice be mimicked from another person talking. Answer: Yes, and I can easily think of ways this could be fun--and possibly exploited for nefarious purposes.

      The metaverse is the final boss matrix. It’s not something you wanna comply with.. THEY want to persuade YOU to submit to the hive mind, internet of bodies, transhumanism, AI “utopia” but what they don’t tell you, is how it’ll end.. well, the Bible tells us ! The Holy Spirit (the force that restrains evil from completely consuming the earth) will be removed from the earth, in time for the 7 year great tribulation. Once the Holy Spirit is removed, CERN will have a major part to play in releasing the fallen angels/demons from the bottomless pit. The Antichrist will be revealed to the entire earth and will proclaim to be God - many will believe the lie and will worship him. He will then establish a peace treaty for 7 years which will be broken after approx. 3 years. This will happen once the earth reaches complete chaos (order out of chaos - Freemason agenda) in which he will usher in the “solution to all the worlds problems” The Beast system (one world currency, one world religion and the mark of the beast) - the new world order. Satan and evil will have complete control of the vessels that took the mark of the beast and they will wage war against Christ upon His second coming.

      @Thomas Riedel Yes. What I meant is metaverse will not work because it doesn't replace reality. But when, VR engine become cheaper where everyone can replace real life with Virtual Reality life, Metaverse will reach its pinnacle. Metaverse will become a huge VR googling where you can "live" inside it. You can read you fave novels, watch movies, hangout with friends, see your favourite heroes in action, shopping, meeting with collagues, schooling, or even VR churces/praying. Imagine when people want to go to pray, they basically get into their VR, and then pray with the others together inside the VR. Kinda bizzare concept. But it highlikely happening eventually. Basically doing everything inside VR metaverse

    This is an excellent presentation, thank you! I've had a lifetime in IT and I think VR and MR are wonderful tools for particular problems, like helicopter flight training. However I have serious reservations about a much broader use, where people might spend more time in the 'verse than they do IRL. The nightmare of the movie "Surrogates" seems prophetic!
    I also think it a mistake to use VR to emulate reality, such as in the creation of a virtual office building. Recently, a company launched virtual exhibitions, where you could approach a "stand" and interact with the staff members there. I found it rather a wasteful of time to have to navigate a virtual world with stairs and floors - surely there are novel ways to get around when we are free of the physical limitations? I think the same thing about Vegan food - why do they try to create stuff that looks like meat - and meat products like sausages - why not be inventive when free of meaty constraints?
    I'm not sure you are completely right to be concerned that Meta is developing the underlying system, on top of which apps will be developed by 3rd parties. Isn't this exactly what Microsoft did with Windows for the desktop? Though I have had many gripes about Windows over the years, since Windows 1 (yes, it did exist!) but it does not seem to have hampered the application creators. There *was* an issue with Microsoft applications, at a time when their own apps used undocumented features of the OS, but that was rightly found illegal as it was anti-competitive. Thanks again for a great video!

    I'm reading Snow Crash right now, the novel that coined the term Metaverse. An interesting thing that jumped out at me right away was that while it's a cyberpunk dystopian setting where everything from the police to suburbs is owned by corporations, the Metaverse (a VR environment where you can buy plots of virtual land and then build something on it that other people can visit) is itself referred to as a _protocol_ , so basically just a standard that everyone follows. What Meta wants to build, by comparison, is just... a mall.

In my opinion this stuff is like current EVs, aimed at a bunch of people with a lot of disposable income that want to spend it on stuff that feels futuristic. Even if the metaverse (or electric cars, for what matters) are the future, it won't be Meta or Tesla delivering that future, they're making enough money in the present to care about that, it will be some other company making it accessible to the wider public (i.e., filling in new niches).

    You cleared up for me what's VR and AR, I had no idea, thanks
    So, I'm a retired old person from South América, and what I feel about that VirtualMetaFuture is what I feel about kitchen gadgets for a person without disabilities
    You can have several things that chop, cut or slice, which have removable/swichable parts which have to be clean everytime you use them, or just a good, reliable knife which would make all of the above and it would be simpler to clean up, store, and replace if needed
    The other thing it bothers me to think about is classes, maybe a lot of people would live in that virtual world but, the world is not virtual, someone has to grow food, clean sewers, pick up trash, bury dead people, made those gadgets for VR so some people would have to live in the real, ugly(?) world, at least for a while, everyday
    And then I wonder, if people decided to always live in that virtual reality where you could have whatever you want or can afford, there's so much real things that may become obsolete, why paint your bedroom if your virtual bedroom color can be changed in the blink of an eye, actually, why would you need a house if in the virtual reality you may have whatever kind of home you may want, maybe the future is people living in a small, windowless room because all their stuff is virtual
    Anyway, I wonder if in this future, living in the MetaVerse/RealLife would be rationed, given as reward or punishment

  • SpookyFairy

    Personally, I prefer having MR/VR in a single device (which partially have tha but it's quite lacking). It needs to be quickly interchangeable and mixable but VR needs better tech to make it more convincing so people want to stay in there. High realism (e.g. human-like FOV, realistic rendering, higher brightness, much better hand tracking) and more tangible haptic experience for higher immersion, is very important for VR alongside complementary mixed reality tech (e.g. object recognition, super fast HQ depth scanning) and have that all-in-one device. So people won't need to choose that or that, they'll get it all in a single device and switch between the two as they found fit instantly. Aside from easy setup, outdoor user, comfort and accessibility which are essential as well.

  • stefandesu

    I think AR/VR needs an open ecosystem, otherwise we will either have a monopoly/duopoly or many competing services that are not compatible with each other. If this grows as big as Meta is betting, it will probably get regulated in some way (like messaging intercompatibility), but it would be nice to have that early on.

    My issue with this is that it's obviously going to be a massive data-harvesting vehicle for these guys. You said, "you can lean over to your coworker and say something in a meeting" and yeah, that sounds realistic and interesting, but when I do it in real life, it's just me and that person. If I'm doing it in this Meta world, it's going into a microphone and then into my coworkers ear. So there's nothing stopping Meta from hearing me say, "Want to go get some pizza after this?" and then you've served up your own advertisement to them. More importantly, there's nothing stopping Facebook from providing a transcript of every single thing being said at this meeting to your boss. So if you lean over to a coworker and say, "This meeting is garbage. It will do nothing to help safety, this is only about padding their investors pockets." what is to stop your boss from hearing this? Nothing. There's nothing to stop the elimination of privacy here, and we need to stop this immediatly. If you have this in your home, there's even worse potential for privacy issues. It's absurd people are even considering this. It's bad enough that people have listening devices like Alexa, Siri, Google home, etc all built into their houses. This is trying to get into every corner of our lives. There will be no more "getting away" to relax. It'll be "relax, sponsored by Bud Light!" and everyone is diving right in.

    Having been deeply involved in VR for 6 years working with others who have been in it for decades, my observation from Facebooks previous failures at VR, is that they are still a tiny player on the scheme of the VR scale especially in VR social platforms. Gaming is only a small part of VR.

      Is it even a secret though? Pretty sure Meta spying on you will be part of the ToS, and some people will still use it anyway.

    This whole thing looks awesome. I have to watch the talk on this headset but I'm curious how long they're going to back the new headset or will they move on to the next set in like 2 years. Also, where does the eye tracking stop....retinal scan, possible subliminal messaging worse than commercials do (ex: making you want that juicy burger). I agree though, there should be more competition in the space.

    What would be ground breaking idea in VR or AR would be a reality where the ai could teach you a new skill or even a trade by showing things to mimic in real time along with hearing the knowledge about what you are learning along with it. We all know practice makes perfect. So repetitively practicing an ai driven AR simulation would allow someone to learn a new skill super fast. Our bodies have a memory to it and after a certain amount of time doing something it becomes second nature in the subconscious mind. Learning a new skill would be so much more fun!

    My take is that it'll likely end in disaster for Meta. But 50-100 years down the road VR will be much more prevalent in everyday life and everyone will be all "Meta was ahead of it's time."

    I believe Meta missed a trick.
    1st, they should have turned Facebook into a 3D world, viewed on members existing screens.
    They could make THAT accessable with VR headsets, but without them being compulsory.
    Once the general user is hooked on that format (which IS addictive) they would perhaps entertain the idea of a headset for Xmas "as an experiment"...

    I really want XR to become a thing. For me, it removes so much of the friction of (some of) my work. When not using VR, I have to make do with what I have, and that works, but why not better? I still don't spend much time in VR because, for my taste, the devices are still not there. Heavy, clunky, not great resolution (I have to read a lot), get's hot and uncomfortable too fast. It's not thaaat bad, just not good enough. And, in regards of applications, I believe it's just a matter of time (and more people using VR) for there to born XR apps that are MUCH better than their non-XR counterparts. When that happens, THEN we'll see this tech actually be adopted as people thought they would in the previous 3-5 years.
    And I agree 1 billion % with you. Having only one company at the head of it is really scary, specially since it's meta. Would love if we could have more competition there.

    The real problem with vr-ar is making everything more complicated than it already is.
    In some case, doing real job mostly bring nuisance,but with vr it’s even worse.
    The key point of technology in my opinion is makes everything simpler and easier,not to burden the user with another gimmicky technology.

    cause most people dont know how to use it and aren't ready to use the software. The use of it in a lot of aspects hasn't been realized yet by a lot of people. Its hard to explain it to people/explain a vision to people and make it marketable sometimes.. especially when people these days are quick to shit on you for literally anything. FB will decline then come back after people realize more and more about how useful it is. they are accepting the L right now.
    The controllers need to go and they just need to make gloves and foot wear or something instead that track you that way in just like they do in movies basically. If facebook could find a way to use AI and images uploaded by people to generate avatars = profit.

    The thing is the endgame of the metaverse is people avoiding reality and very likely suffering by obsessing over even more extreme escapism. Regardless of any perceived benefits in the end it's encouraging people isolating themselves which is already a major issue in society. I don't see how this will be anything but negative for mental health.

      @b Meta has only been filed more lawsuits because of media feedback loops bringing more attention to them. If media would portray tiktok in the same light as meta, TikTok would probably be banned already. Yes, you are low IQ. You are showing signs of not thinking outside the box and are just following the herd of the media lol. You telling me I need to research is so ironic. I know a lot more about the situation than you do. I used to be a meta hater, but then I opened my eyes and realized they are not doing anything wrong, or anything more wrong than any of the other big tech companies and individually blaming meta is one of the most cringe things I have ever seen in my entire life

    My issue with Meta's idea of the Metaverse is just what you said: They are trying to copy everything from the real world to VR and thereby compete with already established workflows.
    Sure, one day VR-meetings will be better than Zoom calls, maybe when instant avatars + face tracking + body tracking have become a common thing. But for now, every Zoom call bears much more communication fidelity than a VR meeting. And that's the whole problem behind the idea of "copying everything to VR".
    My take (as a VR+UX researcher myself) is: Why don't we focus on areas where VR can actually enable us to do new things or make things easier? This way, we might not be replacing traditional pcs or other hardware soon, but VR can actually improve our life. For example, we're working on exergames that analyze the player's movements and correct wrong executions or tailor the experience to achieve better training results. This way, we could bring personal at-home training to the next level, because we combine gameplay+training+personal feedback. Or we could use this in PE, because we all know that teachers are always burdened by too many students. Would be cool to just give some students a headset where they can do a fun training activity that's completely automatically monitored. And the teacher can focus on the rest meanwhile.
    I think it's for these things where VR could actually make a difference. But not cringy avatars.

    • joelface
      joelface 3 months ago

      @Breeze The bigger picture of the "job meetings" component, is it means "working remotely" can become closer and closer to "working onsite" and when a certain threshold is crossed, suddenly you can choose where you live based on where your family lives or where the weather suits you, close to the ocean, or even live nomadically, travelling all the time... all the while holding a steady job, where you show up for work, attend your meetings, stand around the "water cooler" to spitball ideas with coworkers, depending on the type of job you have, etc. It's open to the imagination how different types of jobs could utilize the tech, but clearly there are a lot of professions that could allow "remote workers" once this tech develops. So they're saying "meetings in VR" but you should be hearing "no commute, live where you want!"

    • Timbonator
      Timbonator 3 months ago

      @Breeze well VR already has the entertainment and video games for escapism. But because they want people to not need to buy pc's to do stuff but rather sell their headsets, these headsets need to be able to do everything a pc can do and some Stuff more/better.
      Basically meta wants to compress a 1000$ pc, 500$ monitor for both your eyes, face and body tracking and the peripherals so the keyboard and the mouse into one single product that everyone on the world can buy and that conects everyone easily together. If they can pull that off that would be reaaaally cool.
      I mean they basically have the hardware already with the quest pro, they just need to make it smaller for the whole market and work on the software stuff.

      Smartphone gets used only because regular people bought it themselves, and wind up using it for work without a penny on the company side. Zoom is popular because again, it doesn't cost the company anything.

      @Breeze They haven't really nailed their marketing and PR angle for the general public yet and are mixing up the business advertising with the consumer one as well. But they are selling to businesses. Accenture for now, and I assume they'd massively focus on that aspect later and sell to more businesses.

    I think apple will enter the vr/ar arena in the next year, probably a demo at the next wwdc. one thing apple does is, well they wait, watch, and if they get into something they do it better, the fit and finish, the experience, is usually top tear stuff. and that should make meta nervous!
