Another shot of Zuckerberg's metaversion vision from Amazon's hardware manager

Everyone continues stating they don’t want to live in the metaverse, which Meta and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg can’t seem to shake. Amazon’s head of devices, David Limp, said last week that he doesn’t want to live in a virtual world 24 hours a day, or even a few hours a day.

Limp was asked what he thought about the metaverse when appearing at The Wall Street Journal’s Future of Everything Festival.

Limp echoed similar sentiments in an interview with the Financial Times last month, when he spent the majority of his time promoting his vision of ambient computing — the idea that computers are everywhere — as he has done for the past year and a half.

He said that while he does believe that there’ll be “some form of place-shifting” in the future, he’s focused on devices that “enhance the here and now.”

“I want to try to work on technologies that bring people’s heads up, get them to enjoy the real world about them, make the family a more communal experience.”

He said that even with current tech like phones and wireless earbuds, it can be hard to communicate with his kids, even when they’re in the same house.

What even is a metaverse?

He also said that the term “metaverse” was almost impossible to pin down: “if I asked these few hundred people what they thought the metaverse was, we’d get 205 different answers. We don’t have a common definition, it means a lot of different things to a lot of different people.” When it comes to Meta, Mark Zuckerberg has tried to describe what he means by “metaverse,” but at this point he’s pretty long on vision and short on concrete details — though he does say that AR glasses will play a big role.
