🤦🏼‍♂️ Introduction

This week, I've been existing in the Metaverse! Working in... well... Workrooms, an app within the Meta Quest Pro app store, I've set up my own personal VR office, where I've held meetings, set up 3 GIGANTIC monitors to surround me and immersed myself in the zen-like atmosphere of an office that looks out over the ocean!

Surprisingly, it's not put strain on my eyes with working long periods within VR. I was surprised at this. Especially as my colleague, Chris, reported that, when using the Quest 2 in the same way, he did get really sore eyes after a few short hours. But the Quest Pro seems to be great in that respect.

The battery life could be improved I think as I did have to put it on charge during my work day (whilst wearing it!), which added a touch of weight to my work setup. This wasn't a huge deal breaker but was a little irritating.

I also tried the app, Immersed, an online, virtual co-working space where I was able to meet with real people and chat whilst working. You essentially sit in this 'cafe' space and you can interact with other people through their VR avatars! It was really cool to be able to interact like this as working from home can be a little isolating sometimes!


🗞 Favourite Things

  • I recently got the Evolve GTR Bamboo All Terrain electric skateboard and go have I missed having one! They are SO much fun! Yeah they're a little pricey but for getting around locally, there's no better way in my opinion!
  • I've recently received a bunch of cool iconic tech from the 90s, including a Playstation 1 (yes, it's for a video!). And I've found out that you can actually buy a 'modern classic' Playstation 1 console on Amazon with 20 pre-loaded games for a little over a hundred quid! How freaking cool is that!
  • Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 - need much more be said! It's a stunning game!
  • So, I mentioned above that, during my 'week in a VR office' I've needed to charge the Meta Quest Pro a few times. For that I've been using my trusty Anker Power Bank. I honestly think everyone should have one of these!
