The enterprise-focused device supposedly features facial tracking and high-resolution colored passthrough.
This week, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg joined prominent podcast host and comedian Joe Rogan on his show The Joe Rogan Experience, during which they talked more about the company’s next Meta VR headset, codenamed Project Cambria.
During their conversation, Zuckerberg quickly mentions a release window for the device, saying, “For the next device that’s coming out in October, there are a few big features.” While Zuckerberg doesn’t explicitly mention Project Cambria during the interview, it’s hard to imagine he’s talking about a different piece of hardware based on his description.
According to leaks, Project Cambria, otherwise referred to as the Meta Quest Pro, features both face and eye tracking powered by additional sensors that track your eye and lip movements. We do know that the headset features high-resolution colored passthrough technology capable of delivering engaging mixed reality experiences.
During a Q1 2022 earnings call, Zuckerberg said that he hopes the device will one day replace your laptop or current work setup. Project Cambria is supposedly designed primarily for “work use cases” as opposed to gaming and entertainment.
Hopefully, we’ll learn more about this during the annual Connect conference.
