I just spent a week working in virtual reality using the new Meta Quest 3. While the experience was challenging, I have newfound optimism for VR in the workplace. Despite some drawbacks, such as eye strain and headaches, there were impressive aspects of working in VR. It provided a sense of community and networking with other users from around the world. Virtual reality also allowed for unique experiences like shaking hands with someone thousands of miles away. Although there are still limitations to VR technology, advancements are being made, and the potential for the metaverse is becoming more apparent.
