This week on Reality Bytes, we discuss Roku’s new shoppable ads, Netflix’s secretive but important gaming ambitions, and Meta’s new avatar store. See this week’s episode below. Warning: you’ll see a virtual Mark Zuckerberg in a skintight tracksuit…not for the faint of heart.

👗 Meta announces a virtual avatar store where you can purchase the latest Balenciaga, Prada, and Thom Browne looks for your big-headed avatar. We dive into the potential.
