SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, does not support the metaverse and Web 3.0 ecosystems.
He was asked to share his thoughts regarding the metaverse ecosystem during an interview with The Babylon Bee. He said:
“I don’t see someone strapping a friggin’ screen to their face all day. I don’t know if I necessarily buy into this metaverse stuff, although people talk to me a lot about it.”
Speaking around virtual reality (VR) and metaverse, Musk said that he does not see a future where anyone will leave the physical world to live in a virtual one. Discussing his personal experience, he revealed that VR headsets can cause motion sickness as you play video games.
“In the long term, a sophisticated Neuralink could put you fully into virtual reality. I think we’re far from disappearing into the metaverse, this sounds just kind of buzzwordy.”
Musk established Neuralink, a neurotechnology company, which majorly aims to deploy brain implants on humans for the restoration and enhancement of physical capabilities with the help of computers.
Furthermore, Musk highlighted that people using VR headsets won’t prefer moving around with it without wanting to leave it. Also, he recalled being warned while growing up about the dangers of sitting too close to the Television.
“It’s gonna ruin your eyesight, right? And now we’ve got TV literally right here (on the face). I’m like what? Is that good for you?”
In addition to the role he has taken as the most influential supporter of Dogecoin (DOGE), recently, the CEO expressed support for cryptocurrencies, referring to it as indestructible. Also, he suggested that the U.S. government should “do nothing” when asked to share his views regarding crypto regulations.
