Mark Zuckerberg affirms new Meta VR headset will launch in October

  • 27-August-2022

  Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has affirmed that Meta's next virtual reality headset will show up in October. Zuckerberg offered the remarks on Joe Rogan's podcast, demonstrating the gadget — in all likelihood the headset codenamed "Project Cambria" — will probably launch around the organization's annual Connect event. “For the next device that’s coming out in October, there’s a few big features,” Zuckerberg said, discussing VR at the beginning of the podcast. He proceeded to describe new social options that would be enabled by eye and facial tracking. “The ability to now have kind of eye contact in virtual reality,” Zuckerberg said as part of the feature list. “Have your face be tracked so that way your avatar — it’s not just this still thing, but if you smile or if you frown or if you pout, or whatever your expression is, have that translate in real time to your avatar.” That is predictable with what we are aware of Project Cambria, which should have a high-goal variety screen, inner sensors for eye following, and modern passthrough expanded reality. As Bloomberg detailed last month, spilled code recommends the gadget could be known as the Meta Quest Pro. Anything that it's at last called, Cambria will sit close by the lower-end Meta Quest — in spite of the fact that Meta is supposedly previously arranging its next generation of the two headsets. It's different from a still-nascent lineup of Meta augmented reality glasses. Cambria should be "significantly" more costly than the current Quest, which recently got a price hike to $399. Meta had recently expressed that the gadget will be released at some point this year.
