Zuckerberg debuted Horizon Worlds, a social virtual reality app, in France and Spain earlier this week, sharing a slightly flat, clumsy digital avatar in front of the Eiffel Tower and rolling green hills.
Many compared the Metaverse design to early 90s graphics and pointed out how lifeless and childish the Zuckerberg selfie looked. It quickly gained the designation “dead eyes”.
Well, Zuckerberg has apparently seen the memes, because on Friday he announced that big updates are coming — along with new avatar graphics. On Facebook and Instagram, Zuckerberg posted a photo of his more advanced avatar.
Zuckerberg added that he will share more details at Connect, the company’s annual conference, which took place last October.
Horizon Worlds, from the Meta for Quest headset, is already available in the US, Canada and the UK.
