    3×51: Control the Meta Connect

    Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge, and special guest Adam Lorimer present Bad Voltage, in which reality is virtual, metas are connected, and:


    Meta, nee Facebook, had their Meta Connect conference where they announced their upcoming plans, recent hardware and software releases, and the like. We have some interest in VR generally, as evidenced by Jono always having a prediction about it at Christmas, and so we’d like to dig a bit more into what’s going on over there, some of the upcoming hardware, and talk a little about the place of VR (and AR and MR) in the world order and how it does and might fit in with everything, especially with Adam who actually does this stuff for a living!
