Comment of the Week

“the metaverse doesn’t exist yet – this is being sold well ahead of anything that works.

and once it is built, VR works with.. two of the five senses. Touch, smell, taste, aren’t even on the roadmap. It’s a video game with goggles. I am underwhelmed..

In other news, had a delicious elk steak last night, from an animal I shot in early October. The metaverse could show me the shot maybe: not the blisters that distracted me as I aimed, not the smell of the leaves, and not the delicious meat afterwards..”

-I agree with you.
