Fully immersive VR suit?
“I feel there will probably be opprortunities to wear things to reinforce the experience further,” said Zuckerberg, highlighting gloves the corporate is working on that may allow the user to “feel” objects.
“But I would like to design this where you don’t want to try this. You don’t desire a set-up where you’ve 10 pieces. Ultimately people will want versions of this they will bring around, tackle anairplane, within the office or in a coffee shop.”

Metaverse aiming for glasses not VR headset
“You would like them to be a normal-looking pair of glasses,” he added saying they were working on “waveguide” technology that might be made out of plastic or glass.
He predicted that in five years they might be doing the interview using AI glasses and a hologram version of the Facebook boss can be talking to Rogan.
“So few of the physical things we have now on the planet don’t have to be physical. chairs and food have to be physical, but most entertainment, like TVs, don’t have to be physical, it would just be an app in your wall and you may snap your fingers and a hologram of a TV will appear.”

Zuckerberg says he doesn’t have time for social media
He was asked by Rogan if he limited his time on social media, or if he controlled his children’s access to it.
“Me personally I’m just doing so many things that in practice that there will not be (enough) hours within the day,” he said.
“My kids, I actually have probably not needed to give it some thought quite as much as they’re pretty young, six and five, so that they use it. I would like them to make use of technology for various things, I teach them tips on how to code, it’s an outlet of creativity.
“Max likes constructing things and Augie thinks of it as art. I attempt to do bedtime with them religiously each night. I ask them what activity they wish to do, read, or wrestle, and Augie says she desires to do code art, she thinks of it as making the pc make art.
“It is nice for them to get that exposure, all the things you’re doing on a pc or screen is just not the identical. are you engaging with someone, constructing relationships, or simply consuming?
“For those who are only sitting there and consuming stuff, it is just not bad, but it surely is just not related to the advantages you get for actively engaging with people and constructing relationships.”
He added that he does a “bunch of messaging” but that he doesn’t watch much TV because it puts him in “a weird mental state”

“My type of day is, you get up within the morning have a look at my phone, get 1,000,000 messages which have are available, its often not good,” he told Rogan.
“People reserve the great things to inform me in person, right? So it’s like what’s occurring on the planet that I would like to listen to? So it’s almost like daily you get up you’re punched within the stomach.
“Then it’s like okay, well f**k, what do I would like to do to go and reset myself and be productive and never stressed by this? How do I do this? I principally read I absorb all the data after which go and do something physical for an hour or two and reset myself.
“I used to run so much but the issue is you possibly can think so much if you find yourself running, the previous couple of years I actually have gotten into things that require full focus.”

Zuckerberg says that 3.5bn people use Meta’s platforms
He told Rogan that “there’s at all times stuff to work on” and that he needed to “maintain control” of his time so he was not only reacting “to things that folks throw at me.”
“You could possibly spend all of your time reacting to that but what creates the power to achieve success long run is carving out the time that’s proactive, that’s each caring for yourself and being physical and getting on the market and spending time with my family and my girls,” he said.
