As a reminder, the headset – known as Project Cambria or Meta Quest Pro – will feature much more advanced technologies than what is currently on the market. In addition to having high definition screens for each eye, the device will also be able to capture facial expressions and reproduce them on your avatar within the metaverse. The gadget can also juggle between virtual reality and augmented reality. It will be reserved a priori to the wealthiest since its price will be “at the top of the price range“according to Mark Zuckerberg.

Meta Connect will also be an opportunity for the company to show the progress made in the construction of its virtual world, particularly in terms of graphics. A recent demo of Horizon Worlds earned the CEO of Meta cascading mockery because of the graphics worthy of a PS2 game. Annoyed, Zuckerberg promised improvements. Let’s hope for him that the second dive into the virtual world made in Facebook will be more compelling.
