New Year’s Eve In VR, What To Expect At CES

Tom Faber, who covers nightlife for the New York Times, took some time Finding Community and Freedom on the Virtual Dance Floor In VR chat“There’s been dozens of parties on VRChat, a platform where users can use fantastic avatars of their own design,” he says. The place he’s talking about is for PC-powered VR HMDs, not standalone VR like the Quest . Quest users have their own entertainment to look forward to, as basketball superstar DJ Diesel (Shaquille O’Neil) will host an hour-long event featuring performances from Cardi B, Ludacris, Lil Yachty, Killer Mike and Whipped Cream. Shaq’s New Year’s Eve event premieres Saturday, December 31 at 3:30pm PT in VR on Meta Horizon Worlds and Meta Quest TV, available on Meta Quest 2 headsets and on O’Neal’s Facebook and Instagram pages and Messenger’s Watch Together.

The world’s largest trade show, CES, will be held in Las Vegas from January 4-7. AI is gaining momentum and will undoubtedly be the star of this year’s show. Companies will go to great lengths to show how they can use AI to improve their products. From smart home devices to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence has the potential to revolutionize the way we live and work, but no one knows exactly how it will work. The show, held virtually in 2021, Delta-dimined by 2022, will still not return to its record 175,000 attendance in 2020. Organizers expect 100,000 visitors this year. This is my 25th CES, so trust me when I say 100,000 people is still an overwhelming mob. Given the surge in Covid in Asia, masks are not required, but only a daredevil would walk the huge exhibition hall without a mask.

The XR will be well represented at CES Keep an eye out for Sony’s Playstation VR2, HTC’s new standalone headset announced last week, and Somnimum Space’s VR1, says Forbes’ Andrew Williams. Microsoft and Magic Leap will be on display in the central hall, along with Vrgineers, Xtal, Pimax and Vuzix. Cannon is rolling out cinematic VR. We arrange private kit demos for Real Wear, Dimenco, Lumus and Digilens. Meta offers journalists private time through Quest Pro and Ray Ban Stories. Sharp is also expected to launch a new HD headset.

Metaverse gets off to a bad start after VR headset sales drop in 2022 CNBC said. 2023 could be a make-or-break year for the Metaverse Added CNet. However, Meta might still have a good laugh this Christmas. On December 25th, the Quest app was number one in the App Store.
