New Oculus Headset Named as Cambria Revealed
Facebook’s new VR headset prototype, codenamed Cambria, has taken the internet by storm. Rumors began swirling that Facebook was working on both Oculus Quest Pro and Oculus Quest 2 Plus when someone leaked video tutorials showing what the headsets would look like in real life. Today, after weeks of speculation, Project Cambria was finally revealed to the world. To some extent, it surpasses existing VR headsets like HTC Vive Flow, with an operating system more powerful than any other VR headset released to date.
Facebook announced its new Oculus headsets which will support facial tracking technology as well as a real-color passthrough. The latter will allow the device to become an actual Augmented Reality (AR) device completely.
Facebook Working on True AR Glasses “Project Nazaré”
Facebook announced a new pair of augmented reality glasses that have been nicknamed “Project Nazaré” at their Connect event. However, don’t expect them to be available for purchase anytime soon as the company plans to put a lot of extra work into making them look just like everyday standard eyewear. In fact, this is what they want to make their goal for this product.
There are many interesting challenges that go into making a product like this. For example, the team at Google had to fit hologram displays, cameras, projectors, speakers, and sensors into glasses that are about 5mm thick! It’s only recently that the first product of this ilk was released by Facebook teaming up with Ray-Ban to launch their first Smart Glasses.
GTA: San Andreas and Blade And Sorcery are coming to Oculus Quest 2
Facebook has announced that it will begin bringing two popular video games, the San Andreas and Blade and Sorcery, to its Oculus Quest 2 flagship virtual reality platform. We don’t know how the GTA: San Andreas version of Facebook’s newest gaming system will look like yet but we assume that it may be similar to the most recent remakes of the popular video game trilogy.
So instead of the outdated version 2 of the game, we might get remastered for version one of Oculus Quest. However, it looks like the game will be fully exclusive to Oculus Quest 1. It was only recently that The company released Resident Evil 4 for Quest 2 to a great fan reception.
