Facebook AR Glasses – Facebook is now working on VR technology for AR glasses that will become the future of computing.
Facebook is currently focusing on developing Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) products. During a revenue conference call held on April 28, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg emphasized the two areas as the company’s main investment, the future computing platform.
As is known, the company is rumored to be launching VR technology in AR glasses. However, Zuckerberg said, “fitting a supercomputer in an eyeglass frame” is not easy.
“(The AR glasses) are one of the most difficult technical challenges of this decade,” said Zuckerberg. “I find that an exciting problem to work on. And I think once that can be achieved, the potential will be enormous“.
However, Zuckerberg is confident of Facebook’s performance that he has rated well in the last few quarters. He emphasized that AR and VR will be an important part of interacting with computers in the future and can potentially change the trajectory of the company in the long term.
In addition, he also mentioned the success of Oculus Quest 2, Facebook’s wireless VR headset, as a benchmark for the development of AR and VR. There is a change in adoption in Quest 2, where VR content revolves around the game and something social. It is known, the most used applications in Quest 2 today are those of a social nature.
With the success of its VR products and the developments that occur on the platform, Zuckerberg is increasingly convinced that his team can produce other VR products that can change the company’s future.
“But I think the feedback we get from our product gives us more confidence that our predictions for the future here will happen, and we are focused on the right areas,” said the Facebook boss.
