The Meta Reality Labs division is unveiling a prototype of its latest VR headset

Posted on



The technology giant’s Meta Reality Labs division has announced a new prototype on the roadmap to lightweight and hyper-realistic virtual reality graphics.

The breakthrough remains far from consumer-ready, but the design, codenamed Butterscotch, Starburst, Holocake 2, and Mirror Lake, could add a sleek and bright headset that supports better details than the current Quest 2 display, The Verge reports.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Reality Labs chief scientist Michael Abrash, along with other Reality Labs members, showcased their work at a virtual roundtable last week.

The event focused on a design that Meta referred to as a “time machine”: abundant conceptual evidence to test certain features, such as super -bright backlights or super -high -resolution screens.

“I feel like I’m right now in the middle of a step forward toward realism,” Zuckerberg said.

“I don’t think it will be long until we can create a scene with perfect fidelity,” he said.

Zuckerberg reiterated plans to deliver a high -end headset under the name Project Cambria in 2022, following an announcement early last year.

Cambria supports full VR as well as mixed reality, thanks to a high -resolution camera that can send video feeds to an internal screen.

It will also ship with eye tracking, a key feature for future Meta headsets.
