Amid ongoing criticism over its VR development, and its capability more broadly to actually build the next stage of digital connection, Meta will be looking to silence its critics (at least, some of them) with a new showcase of its next-level technologies at its 2022 Connect Conference, which will be held on October 11th.
Meta’s expected to present a range of new AR and VR innovations at the event, while attendees will also be able to ‘experience creativity unleashed in the metaverse’.
“Meta Connect is a one-day virtual event that explores the building of the metaverse and the future of augmented and virtual reality. 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.”
Among the various elements, Meta’s expected to showcase its new ‘Cambria’ advanced VR headset, which will utilize higher resolution image quality than its current Quest units, while it will also enable the wearer to view their real-world surroundings using outward-facing cameras, to facilitate all new mixed-reality experiences.
