In a recent discussion about the popular Clubhouse app, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg focused on the company’s progress in the world of virtual reality, saying “we should teleport, not transport”, and that VR can allow workers to meet almost instead of traveling for offices.
The Daily mail reports that Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg appeared on the only invitation clubhouse app recently where he discussed the social media giant’s progress in the world of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. Facebook is the owner of the popular Oculus VR company that has been a pioneer in the regular VR device world.
Facebook is developing its VR and AR technology under the Reality Labs division. Zuckerberg stated during the clubhouse meeting that “we will teleport, not transport,”
“One of the things that [VR] “Unlocking is the opportunity to live where you want and be present in another place and really feel like you are there,” said Zuckerberg. He added that VR could provide a new level of interaction in the workplace as more people work from home in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
Zuckerberg stated: “It will unlock many economic opportunities because people will be able to live where they want and increasingly work where they want and kind of teleport in place.” He added: “I am also quite optimistic about the impact on the climate by reducing the amount of commuting that people have to do.”
Zuckerberg said: “I think the progress in electric cars to reduce emissions is big and exciting, but I tell my team that it’s easier to move atoms around, so we’ll teleport, not drive.”
