The development of the metaverse, the great bet of Meta, will also depend on the existence of hardware to be able to access this new virtual environment, as the executive director, Mark Zuckerberg, explained in the presentation of the company stage last October.

Meta has been working for months on one of those teams, known under the name of cambria project, a virtual reality helmet designed to experience mixed reality, of which this Thursday he shared the first specific details. Last week it was also learned that the company will launch other three virtual helmet models in the next years.

In the video, the CEO of Meta appears wearing one of these visors, albeit pixelated, which prevents knowing its design. The only thing that stands out is that it is black.. It is known that it is a high-end device, which will be available at the end of the year and will offer color contrast to improve virtual experiences, as announced in a statement.

The demo provides a first taste of what can be done with the viewer. Specifically, the shared experience, shown in the first person, has been designed with the platform Presencey allows you to interact with virtual elements on the real worldsuch as playing with a pet, writing a note in a notebook or following a yoga class with a monitor that accompanies the user in the form of a hologram.

The company will “soon” make the Presence platform available to developers with the next version of the development kit (SDK). It will also release a demo app for Quest 2, The World Beyond which will allow users of this helmet experience mixed reality.
