Off-road mode in the electric Hummer. A jab at Elon from GM.

Do I have to call it a "metaverse"? Also, when can we have holodecks? I want a holodeck!

/Worst job in the Federation? Holodeck jizz mopper, hands down.

I plan to submit this project.  It's indistinguishable from Mars in my opinion, provided that Mars is first repainted in MS Paint colors.

Depicted below are robots sampling snails eating the world.

MythDragon - love Terraforming Mars, great game!

Defense department is building a Meta verse training program for 22billion. They have a helmet that provides heads up display of vital information and a virtual tanker to train pilots on refueling while in actual flight. War games  and jet fighter programs that can be programmed with any jet fighter they wish to go up against while in actual flight. So the pilot is pulling Gs and reacts in real time. Not just sitting in a simulator. Amazing stuff. Metaverse by FB, not so much. Consumer use is going to fail but commercial use will be huge.

Winner of watch category wins a measly $6k. I'm an architect capable of doing this kind of work (we are currently doing a similar training program for a university). $6k doesn't even get me to fire up the software. (For comparison, our project which trains farm to table food processing for remote indigenous communities, our fee is something like $150k to get to this level of detail). And we don't have the bulk of the work.  This is frankly insulting.
