A smaller headset focusing on mixed reality will be Project Cambria

In addition to the renaming of Facebook and Oculus, the company’s next headset, which combines virtual reality with ours, was discussed at the Meta video conference.

With the Rift, Oculus, one of the first messengers of virtual reality to be released under the auspices of Facebook in 2014, and with two generations of Quest, the company has made great strides in affordable, stand-alone headsets.

And during Facebook Connect on Thursday, the team unveiled its next hardware, which is still under development, so they didn’t just talk about the Oculus name and user accounts.

Mark Zuckerberg said that the headset, which runs the project as Cambria, is not part of the Quest product family, as it will be a high-end device that therefore requires a more peppery price point, which will arrive sometime in 2022. We then saw how, with the help of eye and face tracking sensors, Cambria will be able to track our real mimicry as accurately as possible in our virtual reality view – even if glasses, beards, or something else are somewhat obstructing the sensors.

Project Cambria will be thinner than its predecessors thanks to a space-saving, pancake-lensed optical solution – this replaces a single, thicker lens with more, thinner glass, so repeatedly redirected light still provides good image quality, but the unit attached to our head itself may be smaller. It also has a camera system that allows us to experience mixed reality experiences, seeing parts of our environment in VR as well. In the presentation, we saw an example of a virtual desktop, where many different applications hovered in front of us, while taking notes on a piece of paper. Or one possible use of this technology is the virtual trainer, which was projected into the user’s living room in another example video by Project Cambria.

The segment ended with the information that we can learn more about Cambria next year, and we also learned that we can expect more in the future. Oculustól From Meta to such, more expensive and more advanced devices than the Quest product family.
