Episode #14 - Meta Rolls Out It's New Meta Accounts
In today's podcast, I discuss the latest news from Meta. They recently rolled out their new login system called Meta Accounts, which allows users of their Quest headsets to create a separate account login, where previously they were required to have a Facebook account. Users can still opt to sign up with either their Facebook or Instagram profiles or they can just use their e-mail address. This new login will hopefully reduce some of the pressures they have been receiving on other countries such as Germany, which have been blocking Quest headset sales due to the old Facebook login requirements.

Episode #8 – Marvel Studios’ Eternals: AR Story Experience
In this episode of the AR/VR Magazine Podcast, I review the new Marvel Studios’ Eternals: AR Story Experience. Today, as a promotion for Marvel’s upcoming November 5th movie release, “Eternals,” Marvel Studios launched its first augmented reality story experience – Eternals: AR Story Experience App for iOS. Yesterday, I had a chat with the team at Marvel Studios, who were kind enough to give me an advanced sneak peek at the app which offers a guided augmented reality / mixed reality tour allowing users to explore the film’s characters and storyline. The app, which took 2 years of development, was built using Apple’s ARKit and features some pretty impressive volumetric video capture of actress Lia McHugh’s character Sprite, which makes her appear in your viewing space. If you are a Marvel fan, you will definitely want to check this one out!

Episode #7 - Facebook Announces 10k New EU Jobs to Build the Metaverse
In today’s episode of the AR/VR Magazine Podcast, I discuss the latest announcement that Facebook will be creating 10k jobs in the European Union over the next 5 years to build the Metaverse. I will be sharing my thoughts one this as well as touching on some additional rumors that Facebook may be announcing a company name change in the next couple of weeks. Correction: In the podcast, I said that the term “Metaverse” was based on the book “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline. It was actually based on the book: “Snow Crash” by Neal Stephenson. Both books are equally relevant regarding the topic, however. I read them both at the same time, so I always mix them up.
