Americans Skeptical of Metaverse: Ipsos Study

People with human friends can use augmented reality to ask their advice while shopping remotely.  But while that’s a popular application, this Ipsos survey finds that Americans generally doubt that AR or the metaverse in general will make their lives better.  In fact, most said it was not interesting (39%), a privacy risk (22%), or just hype (20%), while a mere 17% found it exciting and 19% said it would help them learn new things.
