It resembles the 2002 Nintendo GameCube release called “World Baby”. https://t.co/9iyp5d2NnM

Mark Zuckerberg took a selfie with his Metaverse avatar behind a really bad Eiffel Tower.
People made fun of it, where it went viral as a meme called “The 10 Billion Dollar Selfie”.
Turns out that number was actually $18 billion worth of selfies. pic.twitter.com/hC5UIG9gtM

Zuckerberg said in an Instagram post:
Major updates to Horizon and Avatar graphics are coming soon. I’ll share more on Connect. Plus, I know the picture I posted earlier this week was pretty basic – it was taken too early to celebrate the launch. The graphics in Horizon are pretty capable — even on a headset — and Horizon is improving pretty quickly.
Horizon Worlds is currently available on the Meta Quest VR headset and has grown to over 300,000 users in the first two months of its launch. The company has since said that users have created more than 10,000 worlds in the Metaverse. Facebook plans to expand the app to mobile phones and introduce “in-world purchases” for some creators.
