“Legs are coming soon!”

That rather perplexing phrase remained the most after Meta’s Connect this week, the parent company of Facebook’s annual event. People were naturally confused, to say the least. In reality, the tweet from a Meta account simply announced that customers’ digital avatars in the company’s virtual world will soon grow legs, as until now, they had only been floating torsos in a virtual space.

At Meta’s Connect conference last week, Mark Zuckerberg displayed legs on his metaverse avatar; however, it appears that his virtual legs were not what they looked like; at least not what the public probably had been expecting.

During the unveiling, Zuckerberg’s avatar leaped and hoisted its legs in the air to show off its legs, while Aigerim Shorman, who oversees the product and engineering teams on Meta’s avatars, performed a kick.

“Legs are coming soon,” became a meme following the show, despite the fact that “soon” does not even have a date connected to it, as Meta was notoriously vague about when these avatar changes would arrive. However, the legs that were displayed with all of the kicking and leaping were phony. It turned out that it wasn’t Mark Zuckerberg jumping; the scene was pre-rendered for the broadcast.
