Virtual cringe: The 10 lamest brand stunts in the MetaverseMetaverse frenzy is re-emerging after the Generative AI interlude. To understand both, from a pop culture point of view, there are lists of recommended  films.  They show  AIAR and VR’s, Metaverse’s foundational technologies,  mostly dystopian uses. Some of them provide previews of the Metaverse itself.There are also a wealth of informative readings. I recommend looking at  old  writings of two visionary pioneers: IJ Good’s “Speculations concerning the first ultra-intelligent machine”; and Warren Robinett’s “Synthetic experiences: A proposed taxonomy”. They are  also linked to pop culture movies: IJ Good, a former Alan Turing assistant (and my professor at Virginia Tech), was featured on The Imitation Game and advised Stanley Kubrik in “2001 Space Odyssey”; and Warren Robinett, who greatly helped my VR research group at NOVA, has plenty of air time on Steven Spielberg’s  Ready Player One.
