Meta announced “Personal Boundary” for Horizon Worlds and Horizon Venues, which “prevents avatars from coming within a set distance of each other, creating more personal space for people and making it easier to avoid unwanted interactions.” This is a “force field” that I would like IRL to protect me from any number of relatives who get a bit too close when chatting at family gatherings. That said, do we really need these protections for the cartoon characters that represent us in a cartoon metaverse?
