0

Facebook announced this Thursday (28), during Facebook Connect, two more Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) devices. The hardware will help in the construction of the company’s so-called metaverse, which it received at the event.

The first product is Project Cambria, an Oculus Quest compatible headset. The piece will use state-of-the-art VR technology cameras to do facial tracking, will have high-resolution augmented reality and is expected to be released in 2022.

Project Cambria, which may gain a new official at launch, can be used for both work and leisure activities. In the case of corporate use, it will be possible to leave the computer in virtual reality to organize tasks, for example.

At leisure, the device will help a person to perform training at home with the help of a personal trainer, who can be “together” with the person from a kind of holography created by the headset.

In addition to him, the company announced Project Nazareth. Without too much detail, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the glasses will be very thin, being just 5 millimeters.
