Facebook is all set to launch its all-new AR/ VR headset in October. This has been revealed by none other than the company CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The CEO was speaking on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast when he made the revelation. Also, as PhoneArena reported, the upcoming AR/VR headset would be unique in that it will have better non-verbal communication, which can be like maintaining proper eye contact among the other avatars on Metaverse.
“In the previous version eye contact was all just AI simulated, we didn’t actually know when you were making eye contact because we weren’t tracking the eyes. Now for this version, and hopefully a lot of the different ones we build going forward, you’ll be able to have realistic facial expressions and more transmitted directly to your avatar,” said Meta’s CEO.
This is also the first time Meta would be coming up with a brand new AR/VR headset post its mega Metaverse makeover. The two headsets that the social media giant currently offers and which include the Meta Quest 2 VR headset were introduced prior to its dive into the Meta bandwagon. The Meta Quest 2 VR headset specifically was launched in 2020. This apart, the company also offers smart glasses that have been developed in partnership with Ray-Ban.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
