    Bunch of thoughts on this:

    You can't tell, but he's wearing no shoes in that picture 

    He will probably be sued by Oculus/ Facebook for "stealing" their tech

    Do they really think they can revive the discredited "virtualboy" name?

    In this era of political correctness, it will probably have to be called the "Virtualperson" anyway

    I'm not sure how Apple feels about him, perhaps that is one place he could go. But I would hardly see Nintendo taking him in, considering the tongue-in-cheek type jabs he would take at them in the past:

    Tweeting about Nintendo publishing vs building:
