The formation of the metaverse, the good Meta bet, will also depend on having hardware to access this new virtual environment, as executive director Mark Zuckerberg explained at the company’s stage presentation in October.
Meta has been working with one of those groups, known under the name of cambria project, a virtual reality helmet designed to experience mixed reality, where this Thursday he shared the first specific details. Last week it was also learned that the company would be launching another three virtual helmet models in subsequent years.
In the video, the CEO of Meta appears to be wearing one of these visors, albeit pixelated, which prevents knowing its design. The only thing that stands out is that it is black.. It is known that this is a high-end device, which will be available at the end of the year and will offer color contrast to improve the virtual experience, as announced in a statement.
The demo gives a first taste of what can be done to the viewer. In particular, the shared experience, presented in first person, was designed using the platform presenceY lets you interact with virtual elements in the real worldsuch as playing with a pet, writing a note in a notebook or following a yoga class with a monitor accompanied by the user in the form of a hologram.
The company will “soon” make the Presence platform available to developers with the next version of the development kit (SDK). It will also release a demo app for Quest 2, The Beyond the Worldwhich will allow users of this helmet experience mixed reality.
