Meta released an interesting announcement about an app that they are adding into Meta quest that integrates VR virtual reality into live sports. The app is called Xtadium with an X in it instead of S. So I guess you call it Xtadium. Tough brand name. So what the app does is it gives you a feeling of sitting in the front row of a real life sports game. So you will feel like with your headset on, even though you’re at home, you will feel like you’re actually in the front row of the stadium. You can watch the game, the real game, like live game, and you can watch the audience and you know all of that with your avatar. It’s an integrated hybrid experience of real life footage and Metaverse coming together. So an interesting application, anything that combines two things, sports and news, is going to be adopted very well by the audience audience. That’s what we’ve seen in history. So let’s see if this helps Meta VR move forward.
