    so now they should make Facebook a physical place make the whole internet like a a physical place for VR.. so just like Sims people can work in that VR world and let people be aware of each other I give a person wanted to be a butterfly they should let a person be a butterfly and do things the butterflies that but also be able to go off of course in interact with people and it should be some type of point system if a person get out of line and make it into a chaos type of world instead of having fun I'm sure that's where they going with it anyway but That's what my Dream's tell me so YEAH I like it I don't have one yet I'm working on that.. I want this in my life. NOW

    These are great. Will really help other devs with making social experiences.

    I was very excited to see the potential of oculus and facebook but now I have lost all faith in them. Microsoft has really impressed me with their Holo lens. AR is the future and doesn't look like a gimmick like these VR examples.

    I like how you keep the topics short instead of talking a minute before you actually start with the gadgets

    I don't wanna diss Adi, she is alright, but are those hairs on her arm at 0:18 ?

    well this seems pointless. I assume its an option for devs that can't rig a model for motion the same way miis were.

    Ohhhh no. Not the zombie again.

    It would be worth a great amount to hijack Hillary Clinton's global checkbook, in VR World.

    There is so much wrong with this… the thought that some dumbass in Fb thinks this is a good idea boggles the mind.
