Apple's iPod creator has warned the so-called metaverse risks creating more trolls and damaging human interaction.

The virtual reality-based metaverse removes the ability "to look into the other person's face," Tony Fadell said.

"If you put technology between that human connection that's when the toxicity happens," he said.

The metaverse is a virtual reality realm where it is envisioned people can create avatars of themselves to interact with others in online worlds.

It will be used for playing games but also in spaces such as work and music concerts and often accessed through a virtual reality headset.

Facebook co-creator and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg is investing billions of dollars and hiring thousands of workers to create a metaverse.

I Call True: Had little "eye roll" when i first started reading this as its Apple vs Meta however it is true isnt it. I mean Trolls are big and brave on the internet where there's little if any repercussion for their actions so over all i'm calling true on the headline.

As if we don't have more than enough trolls already, we are now looking at places for them to fester even more!

Not exactly a rocket science bit of insight and an easy true call from me.

The less connected we are the mightier the troll feels
