In October, Meta Will Release A New Virtual Reality Headset That Includes Eye And Facial Tracking!

The new premium VR headset will be unveiled by Meta’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, in October, probably in conjunction with the Connect VR convention.

The new virtual reality headset, Project Cambria, according to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, would have “huge features” that will give users a sense of “social presence,” he stated in a podcast interview with Joe Rogan.

In addition, Zuckerberg mentioned that the forthcoming virtual reality headsets would have an eye and facial tracking feature. He claims that by doing this, the headset wearer will be able to create eye contact in the virtual environment.

Additionally, the face tracking function enables your avatar to follow your face and communicate himself or herself in real-time. “Have your face tracked so that your avatar—not it’s just this motionless object, but if you smile, if you frown, if you pout, or whatever your expression is, have that translate in real-time to your avatar,” he was overheard stating in the episode.

In May of this year, Meta published a video highlighting the features of their new VR headgear. The new headgear is anticipated to cost more than USD800, which is more than the Quest 2 VR headset does right now.

While the actual device isn’t visible in the video, the manufacturer discusses how the headset can pass through full-color images in high definition. With the use of the passthrough feature, headset users may observe their surroundings in real-time.

It makes use of the headset’s sensors to simulate what the user would see if he or she were able to peer right through the front of the device and out into the outside world.

Passthrough is only visible in shades of grey on current Quest headsets. The forthcoming VR headset will be able to perform full-color pass-through, making the inside of the headset’s content appear more lifelike and dynamic.

A price increase for both versions of Quest 2 was announced by the firm last month and will take effect in August. Priced at $399.99 (about Rs. 32,000) for the Quest 2’s 128GB version and $499.99 for the 256GB version (Rs. 40,000 approx.).
