Amazon is now taking a meta-turn as Zuckerberg makes big plans

NEW DELHI: Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has implemented his grand metaversion plans, with David Limp, Amazon’s head of devices, saying his company will focus more on technologies that operate in the real world “here and now.”

Speaking at The Wall Street Journal’s Future of Everything festival, Limp said that even with current technology such as smartphones and wireless headphones, it can be difficult to communicate with his children, even when they live in the same house.

“I want to try to work with technologies that will lift people’s heads, encourage them to enjoy the real world, make the family more communal,” he was quoted as saying at the event.

“I really basically believe and think we spend a lot of time doing that in our organization, that we want to improve here and now. I want to try and work with technologies that raise people’s heads to enjoy the real world,” Limp said late Thursday.

A senior Amazon executive said he did not want to live in a virtual world 24 hours a day, 7 days a week or even a few hours a day.

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel criticized the new technology at the end of last month, saying the concept was “quite ambiguous and hypothetical.”

Spy The Guardian said the word “metaverse” was never used in Snap offices.

“The reason we don’t use this word is that it’s quite ambiguous and hypothetical. Just ask people in the room how to define it, and everyone’s definition is completely different,” he is quoted as saying.

According to him, people prefer to spend time in augmented reality (AR) rather than fully virtual.

Limp said it was almost impossible to define the term “metaverse”.

“If I asked these few hundred people what they thought was a metaverse, we would get 205 different answers. “We don’t have a common definition, it means a lot of different things to a lot of different people,” he said.

Limp also said AR glasses are better than VR because you can at least see the real world.

Meta is preparing for a major Metaverse march and plans to invest $ 10 billion next year.
