Mark Zuckerberg today unveiled the new Metin VR/MR hedset on his Facebook profile. It is a new, advanced hedset that was made with the aim of “expanding the possibilities of virtual reality”. The Hedset comes with virtual (VR) and mixed reality (MR) capabilities and is equipped with facial expression tracking sensors, internal tracking controllers, and many advanced features.
In the video, we can see what the Meta Quest Pro and controllers will look like. “This is the new Meta Quest Pro. The first in our new range of advanced hedsets,” Zuckerberg says in the video. “Hedset takes everything users love about Quest 2 and adds an abundance of new technology to allow you to get more out of the metaverse. With built-in mixed reality, it allows you to do things that just weren’t possible before. If you’re looking for a new way to do things or just want the best experience available today, Quest Pro sets a new standard.”
Mark’s post, along with the video, can be viewed on his Faceobook profile.
Expensive, but high-quality
Bloombmerg Adria states that the Meta Quest Pro will cost $ 1 500 (about 11 650 kn), which is quite a lot; three times more than Quest 2. However, the high cost is justified by the numerous technological improvements that Quest Pro has over Quest 2.
Take it a step further
The target with its new hedset plans to expand the audience. Until now, their VR hedsets were known for gaming, but now they are trying to extend the utility and use of their devices to business environments. So, some of The Quest Pro’s new features are aimed at more of a business audience. One of the new capabilities of the device is to monitor facial and eye expressions, which it can use to make more natural contact with other people in the virtual world.
Hedset is also intended to achieve mixed reality using full-color technology. This kind of technology using external cameras allows for a detailed view of the real world and overlap of virtual objects with it. Overall, except for gaming, Quest Pro is currently also being promoted as well as a very useful tool for business environments, especially remote work.
Meta Quest Pro went on sale on Tuesday, with delivery of purchased hedsets scheduled to begin oct. 25.
