Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the upcoming VR headset is aimed more at work than gaming. As is known in 2021, Meta announced a high-end Virtual Reality (VR) headset under development called Project Cambria. At that time, the device was rumored to be similar to the Quest Pro. It is also touted as an enhanced and enhanced Queat with more advanced abilities.
Reporting from Extremetech (29/4), Zuckerberg discussed the obstacles facing the company and how they plan to overcome them. One thing we’re tired of hearing about is Zuckerberg’s Metaverse plan. But apart from that, he also mentioned the hardware that will bring people into the virtual world.
“Later this year, we’ll be releasing a high-end headset, codenamed Project Cambria, that will focus more on work use cases and ultimately replace your laptop or work setup,” Zuckerberg said in a call.
He continued, “This premium device will enhance ergonomics and full color passthrough mixed reality to seamlessly blend virtual reality with the physical world.”
As PCMag mentioned, the full color passthrough would mark a major upgrade to its current hardware. Quest 2 only allows speckled black-and-white passthrough.
Zuckerbeg also added that the VR headset will have eye and face tracking. The user’s avatar can make eye contact and make facial expressions, which can significantly enhance a person’s presence.
