Zuckerberg says the headset will replace the laptop or work computer.

Meta has confirmed that it is working on a new state-of-the-art VR headset than the popular Quest 2, which will be released later this year. However, before being too enthusiastic, Mark Zuckerberg said that the new device, codenamed Project Cambria, is “more focused on use cases at work.”

Zuckerberg confirmed the new set during a conference, which he reiterated in a Facebook post.

“In terms of hardware, Meta Quest 2 continues to be the leading virtual reality headset. Later this year, we’ll be launching a state-of-the-art headset codenamed Project Cambria, which will focus more on workplace use and eventually replace your laptop or work configuration. This premium device will have improved ergonomics and a mixed color transition reality, to perfectly combine virtual reality with the physical world. ”

“We also develop eye tracking and face tracking so that your avatar can make eye contact and facial expressions, which dramatically improves your sense of presence. It’s also a good example of why we develop hardware in addition to social platforms, “Zuckerberg continues.

Meta pushes the concept of “metavers” quite a bit, and it looks like the Cambria Project will have a lot to do with it. Here, I hope it’s not so bad in games, because what else are you going to do in metaverse if not to play virtual ping pong? Do you work in a digital office? Let’s be serious.

The news about the Cambria Project comes just as Meta dismantles even more of the Oculus brand. Quest 2’s dedicated website has now been redirected to the new Meta Store.

That being said, Quest 2 was successful as a VR set among gamers, quickly becoming the most popular VR headset on Steam, with 47% of VR users owning headphones, according to Steam Hardware Survey.
