On Wednesdays, we’re going to vary it up a bit, and use the present to share much more of the tales The Verge group is overlaying. David shall be joined by The Verge’s professional staffers in a deep exploration of how devices and software program have an effect on our lives — and which of them you must deliver into yours.
So, right here is our first Wednesday version of The Vergecast.

David and Adi stroll via these new prototypes, the tech behind them, and what they imply for the way forward for Meta and the metaverse.
Later within the present, David brings in Verge editor and resident headphone professional Chris Welch to check out all of the wi-fi earbuds that we may discover to listen to how they sound on voice calls: the AirPods Execs, the Jabra Elite 7 Execs, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Execs, the Sony LinkBuds S, the Sony LinkBuds, the Beats Match Execs, and the OnePlus Nord Buds. It’s a wild journey in audio high quality on this one, however that’s form of the purpose of the experiment.
Within the ultimate phase of the present, David and Alex spend a while daydreaming about E Ink devices. Neither Alex nor David have ever discovered the digital paper system that basically works for them, so that they determined to get collectively and spec out the right candidate — and talk about why it nonetheless doesn’t exist.
We’ve got plenty of concepts about how to do that present, and we’re going to do quite a lot of experimenting with it, so we hope you’ll inform us what you want and don’t like. Both manner, we’ll see you once more on Friday!
