The future of VR headsets does not look bleak after the founder of Neurolink questioned its long-term implications for vision.
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, showed no support for the Metaverse and Web 3.0 ecosystem as it rejected the terms used as BuzzWords and marketing strategies.
“I don’t see anyone wearing a frigid screen all day,” Musk said in an interview with The Babylon B when asked about his views on the Metaverse ecosystem.
“I don’t know if I necessarily buy this Metaverse product, even though people talk to me a lot about it.” He added.
Talking about Metaverse and Virtual Reality (VR), Musk said he doesn’t see a future where one has to leave the physical world to live in Virtual On. Sharing a personal experience, he added that VR headsets trigger motion sickness while playing video games:
In the long run, a sophisticated Neurolink can put you completely into virtual reality. I think we’re far from disappearing into Metaverse; it’s just a kind of cowardly sound.
Musk founded Neurolink, a neurotechnology company whose primary goal is to implant brain implants in humans to restore and enhance physical abilities through computers.
I can’t seem to find a great meta-situation, or web 3 sounds more like marketing than reality. I haven’t got it, and I probably will, but I haven’t got it yet.
Musk also highlighted that people would not want to go around with a VR headset without leaving it. He also recalled being warned not to sit near the TV when he grew up.
“It’ll ruin your vision, right? And now we have the TV right here (on the face). What do I like? Is it good for you?”
Increasing his role as a supporter of the most influential Dogecoin (DOGE), Musk recently expressed support for the corrupt, calling it “indestructible” and essentially reducing the central government’s power. ۔ As Cointelegraph reported, Musk said at a code conference in California:
“It is not possible to destroy corruption, but governments can reduce its growth.”
He also suggested that the US government do “nothing” when asked about its views on corrupt regulations.
