In an interview with German media executive Mathias Döpfner, Mark Zuckerberg explained a photo showing the Facebook CEO walking unnoticed among a swarm of technology reporters using virtual reality (VR) at a conference.
Some observers said the photo was creepy, like a glimpse into a dystopian future where people are cut off from the real world, opting instead to spend their time in VR.
