Meta has announced a new feature to allow more personal space for people’s avatars in virtual-reality worlds.
The metaverse is still at concept stage but the latest attempts to create virtual worlds are already facing an age-old problem: harassment.
One woman likened her own traumatic experience in VR to sexual abuse.
Meta has now announced a new feature, Personal Boundary, which began rolling out yesterday.
It prevents avatars from coming within a set distance of each other, creating more personal space for people and making it easier to avoid these unwanted interactions.
