Facebook Expects AR Smartglasses To Go Mainstream In 2022

Facebook Expects AR Smartglasses To Go Mainstream In 2022

Facebook came under severe criticism for not removing the murder video for more than two hours.

"The new camera technology lets you move around within the video scene and experience the content from different viewing angles", said Facebook in a blog post.

Chief Scientist of Oculus Research Michael Abrash wants to develop a version of augmented reality (AR) that enhances your vision and hearing seamlessly while being light, comfortable, power-efficient and socially acceptable enough to accompany you everywhere.

"Even if we were a little slow to add cameras to all our apps, I'm confident that now we're going to push this augmented reality platform forward", he said.

Note that augmented reality is not the only area in which Facebook and Snapchat are competing.

That makes sense, assuming you're into the idea of wearing a computer on your face (and you're OK with Facebook intermediating everything you see and hear, glitches and all).

Juventus frustrate Barcelona hopes of a comeback to reach semifinals
We can expect the same scenario today, but Juventus are little hard to defeat as they7 are much stronger than PSG. We must not get ahead of ourselves, but it's right to feel enthusiasm and tomorrow we need to focus on Serie A.

Among the new application upgrades offered is "Facebook spaces", which uses Oculus Rift and Touch to create personal avatars that can interact in a virtual 3D space.

But Facebook could still have the edge on rivals such as Snapchat, which also launched some augmented reality features on Tuesday, likely to coincide with Facebook's news.

Zuckerberg's comment came during the opening of Facebook's annual developers conference in the heart of Silicon Valley, where he focused on technology tools meant to promote stronger communities. But putting an augmented reality camera on your smartphone is an "effort to have you view the entire world through your phone, running Facebook".

Facebook says that these Avatars will be placed in a customisable VR space allowing users to invite friends into the spaces and engage in a range of activities such as doodling in the air with markers, exploring 360 videos and photos, or reliving old memories from your timelines. According to Facebook, yes, but we shouldn't expect that to happen until at least 2022.
