This morning Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a smile picture of himself sporting a slim virtual reality headset at Facebook. It was Zuck’s way of announcing the ninth annual Meta Connect conference, scheduled for October 11, 2022.
The virtual event is open to everyone and will be available to stream from Reality Labs Facebook Page starting at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET.
The device Zuck is sporting in the invite image appears to be an iteration of the flatter new “holocake” technology that Meta teased earlier this year.
Meta has a sweet take on VR, but it’s far from reality for the rest of us
As for what’s on deck at Connect 2022, the company is expected to share details around the rumored “Meta Quest Pro”. Reports have identified the device as a $1,000 version of the Quest 2, with improved processing power, screen resolution, new controllers, eye tracking and external cameras intended for use at work.
Earlier this year, Meta shared the far-future VR features it has in development at its Reality Labs headquarters. At Meta Connect, Meta officials can also give us an idea of where these technologies will be applied and when we can expect to have them in our hands…er…on our faces.
