The Meta Quest Pro is a brand-new headset from Meta. This $1,500 virtual reality headgear is made for people who want to work in the Metaverse. Despite having facial expression tracking and excellent images, experts lament the headset's very short battery life. (Reference: WSJ)

Why this is significant for your company:

No sensible manager or worker would wear these items, in my opinion, without receiving harsh criticism from their coworkers. The Metaverse will materialize once there is a more convenient way to access it, such as a regular set of glasses that can transition between the two realities. Although it's easier said than done, the hardware will finally be installed.

5 - This "thermal attack" uses the heat that your fingertips emit to decipher your password.

The researcher added that biometric authentication boosts security.
