"the metaverse opportunity"
It's not an opportunity yet.
It's based on VR goggles, and there is no model today that can allow you to wear it for hours without any sort of discomfort. Not to mention that it can make some people physically sick.
In order for this "metaverse" to actually take off and interest people, the industry is going to have to tackle the primary issue : the goggles are heavy and not comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I wouldn't be surprised if VR goggles put a strain on the eyes, but never having tried any personally, I can't vouch for that.
VR goggles are going to have to become much lighter, which is going to be impossible to do if rendering is done in the goggles. If rendering is to be done at a central server, then the goggles might become lighter by an appreciable amount, but there will be lag issues that can be more or less annoying.
Add to that the fact that there will be no privacy around this : if you are to be known for work, it's under your name and, once your equipment has been tagged to your identity, that will probably not go away even you invent another avatar.
I've never been interested in VR, so I would take a pass on this even if The Zuck was not involved.
