Have you been wondering when we might get to watch Alan make a fool of himself by wearing a headset and exploring the virtual world that he has been living in recently? Yeah, me too. Well, our wish is finally coming true! In this episode of Brothers in Tech, the Brothers (well, Alan) take Facebook’s Meta Quest VR headset for a spin, and discuss the possible current and future uses for the technology. Are there uses outside of gaming? Is it worth the price? Can you wear glasses in the headset? Why doesn’t Alan’s avatar have legs? Watch or listen for the answers to these questions and more, but fair warning…if you get dizzy easily, you might want to check out the audio version.
