Meta is preparing another hardware novelty

Facebook’s parent company, Meta, has recently been trying to break into the hardware market in a variety of ways. In addition to the popular virtual reality accessory, Oculus VR, however, the company said the portal Gizmochina has not experienced extra great success.

The company reportedly began developing a new device for its users that will provide them with an improved version of the real physical world. The new product will feature AR glasses, which Meta plans to introduce to the public as part of the Nazare project in 2024. A more developed version of this device is expected to hit the market in 2026 and 2028.

The Verge also mentions the fact that the company has invested millions of dollars in the development of its novelty in the form of AR glasses. This product envisions Mark Zuckerberg as one of the visions for his virtual “metaverse” world.

The price of the device will fluctuate in higher price lines. A higher price is also expected compared to the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset, due to the rising prices of the materials used to make these AR glasses.

What can we expect from the device?

To provide a true enhanced reality experience, the company is preparing a number of features that the new glasses will include. Features such as eye-tracking cameras, enhanced waveguides as well as microLED projectors have cost the company thousands of dollars. As this is an investment, it is possible that the first generation of AR glasses could cause a gap in the market.

According to leaked information, the device should weigh about 100 grams, which is about four times the weight of normal glasses. Rough black frames should come along with a lot of weight. The battery will probably last only 4 hours and will be powered by a wireless puck. This puck will be a size that is compact and will fit in your pocket.

According to the source, the company does not yet have a functional prototype of the new glasses. This means that even though the company wants to launch its new product in 2024, this planned date may still change.
