Earlier this week, it was supposed to be a party time for folks at the Meta, as a reality-devouring project. Horizon worlds I was Now available in more countries. The occasion was commemorated by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg himself, who posted a “selfie” of his in-game avatar in front of the digital Eiffel Tower. It looks cute, doesn’t it? The problem was that the graphics were comparable to what you would expect from a kids game like Roblox, and not from the effort of a multibillion-dollar company to shape our collective virtual future. Internet Instantly roasted Mark Zuckerberg’s selfie To hell and back. And now, Zuk Here to do some damage control.

Posting on Instagram, for those of you who have scrolled through enough recommended posts to see it, is a completely new default offering for Zuckerberg. This, I am happy to report, seems to contain more life essence than the latter, though it is unclear how many lives would have to be sacrificed in order to give Mark a little glint in his eye. For those who keep counting, this is Zucc’s fourth or fifth VR release we’ve got so far. However, the mysterious person we just saw came after, after He showed us a really nice picture a few years ago. That is, don’t assume that what you see above will always be. He suggests a lot in the accompanying post for a new “selfie” when he says VR is always evolving.

Major updates to Horizon’s graphics and avatar coming soon. I will share more on Connect. I also know that the photo I posted earlier this week was pretty basic – it was taken very quickly to celebrate the launch. The graphics in Horizon are capable of doing so much more – even on headphones – and Horizon is getting better very quickly.

That’s right, screenshots from Horizon worlds It doesn’t always look as bad as what Zuckerberg shared earlier this week. But that’s also part of what made him so baffling; Why who – which What does the company leader boast about? At the same time, Horizon worlds It still doesn’t look nearly as good as what you can find in other VR shows.

Many will say it’s about making sure the Meta Quest hardware, which is priced to the average consumer, can handle a lot of people at once. But there is performance, and then there is art. The thing everyone was responding to was what seemed to be a dismal lack of spirit. We all know that it doesn’t take a lot of polygons to make something look good, or else we won’t remember the old games as much as we do. The Eiffel Tower is supposed to be an important cultural artifact, but you wouldn’t take that out of the VR version at all. The digital version isn’t inspiring, unless we’re trying to evoke a burp. It’s not particularly beautiful. what is the point?

Meta as a company leaves a bad taste in a lot of people’s mouths already, so seeing them force their way into VR dominance with tons of cash while they seem to care little about the spirit of this thing that’s supposed to be exciting for our tech future? who – which It’s what makes people jump when the pastel Zucc doesn’t blink.

Anyway, better graphics! Wu.
