July 31, 2023
Paris Marx of the Tech Won't Save Us podcast joins Scam Economy with Matt Binder to discuss one of the current big tech industry hype bubbles: VR or Virtual Reality. We break down Apple's entry into the field with the Vision Pro, Meta's play with their VR headset and its subsequent failings with the Metaverse, the crypto adjacent Web3 metaverse attempts, the tech industry's continuation to try and monetize everything, and much much more!
