Adam Savage's Tested channel's Norman Chan visits with the Reality Lab and interviews Mark Zuckerberg. Despite VR/AR still seeming like a big tech push and Zuckerberg seeming like a weird robot, it's fascinating to see the prototypes and sharing the various directions that Meta has being going in order to get to the "VR Turing Test" point.

Personally, I'm starting to applaud Zuckerberg for the risk he's taking with this project.

Despite all the hate Meta is getting, we can't forget this is exactly what we all want in the tech world. Established companies making bold, borderline crazy investments into R&D for new markets - remember how yesterdays leader became irrelevant? Usually you would see this taking place outside of the corporation via funding for smaller startups but in this case got the CEOs direct involvement and focus which is intriguing.
