Mark Zuckerberg gave a preview of Meta’s new virtual reality headset, with a launch window expected in December this year. The Cambria Project can still adopt meta quest pro, officially retiring the Oculus brand from the original startup, acquired in 2014.
During the presentation released this past Thursday (12/05), the CEO of Meta exhibited some interesting news of the new version of his VR glasses, such as the evolution of the mixed reality mode, which combines real space with virtual objects and activities.
Combining virtual and real world, now colorful
The Present Platform is nothing new to Oculus Quest 2 owners: its use a pass-through method that captures the environment around the user and transmits the image to the headset display. However, to date, real-world elements are displayed in black and white.
The current experience is already very satisfying, and allows you to interact with digital elements without destroying the coffee table or kicking the couch. However, the future device captures and reproduces the space with high color fidelity.
Is your living room:
A. A fishing pond ??
B. The perfect work space ?????
C. A lush forest ??
Soon, with our new Presence Platform the answer will be D. All of the above and more!

Towards the Metaverse
The Cambria Project’s advanced environment reconstruction algorithm integrates the real and virtual worlds more organically, and makes tasks and games in the new VR glasses much more attractive and comfortable.
More than reducing the discomfort of virtual reality systems, improving the mixed reality experience is one of Zuckerberg’s company’s main focuses; creating an attractive metaverse for larger groups of users, not just technology enthusiasts.
The meta quest pro name is not yet confirmed, but it would make sense considering meta’s recent rebranding and the proposal to unify all of the company’s services under a single strong brand. The release is still scheduled for the end of the year, but so far there is no set date.
