Artificial intelligence has produced creepy images of what it thinks humans will look like in the metaverse.
Craiyon AI, a popular text-to-image system, created several different pictures of what people might look like if humans all join the metaverse. Each has an augmented reality headset merged with their face.
The images come after a different AI that works in the same way produced bizarre pictures of the 'last selfie ever taken' that showed apocalyptic scenes of people in front of nuclear blasts, with rotting flesh and total devastation behind them.

Another image created by the AI shows someone with longer hair who has a misshapen face with a nose that's displaced to the lower half of her face
In another image, the person seems to be scowling, doesn't have a real hand and looks eerily green like something from The Matrix
The 'metaverse' is a set of virtual spaces where you can game, work and communicate with others who aren't in the same physical space as you.
Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg has been a leading voice on the concept, which is seen as the future of the internet and would blur the lines between the physical and digital.
'You'll be able to hang out with friends, work, play, learn, shop, create and more,' Meta has said.
'It's not necessarily about spending more time online — it's about making the time you do spend online more meaningful.'
While Meta is leading the charge with the metaverse, it explained that it isn't a single product one company can build.
