Meta prepares to host the 2022 Meta Connect Conference on the 11th of October, where it aims to showcase a range of its new AR and VR creations, along with a virtual design of the Metaverse. “Industry leaders will share the latest technologies and developer sessions will cover how to use them. Our goal is to bring the world closer together and deepen human connection through new experiences,” says Meta.
One of the major exhibits in the conference will be Meta’s latest ‘Cambria’ VR headset that it had first previewed last October. The headset features advanced, high-end technology, including higher resolution image quality and outward-facing cameras, hence enabling the wearer to experience a unique mixed-reality. The only drawback of the Cambria headset, it seems like, is its price, which is around $1000 and would likely result in lower take-up.
In addition to that, Mark Zuckerberg’s earlier announcement regarding updates to Horizon and avatar graphics is likely to be presented at the conference as well. It would be a great opportunity for the tech giant to assure people of the plans that it has for Metaverse, since it has been hard to imagine what Meta’s future digital space could look like.
The 2022 Connect Conference could, therefore, be Meta’s most significant event yet and a key indication of the company’s progress.
