Mark Zuckerberg, almost two years after rebranding his company Facebook to Meta, remains committed to building the metaverse, a three-dimensional virtual reality.
However, his focus has changed tremendously.

Initially, Mark emphasized the metaverse as an entirely digital realm.
Now, he seeks to persuade the public that the future lies in a fusion of the digital and physical.
He envisions a scenario where people gather physically with some friends while others join digitally as avatars or holograms, all feeling equally present.
Meetings could feature a mix of physical attendees, digital holograms, and AI entities embodied as holograms, working collaboratively.
Zuckerberg assures that in this blended reality, the physical surroundings remain visible.
This metaverse allows for interactive activities like solving puzzles or creating structures on any flat surface in the room, as well as playing games with friends seated around a table.
