Meta previews new Quest 3 VR Headsets, the next stage for its metaverse ambitions 💻
👀 Meta has shared a preview of its new Quest 3 VR headset, which will be available in stores this fall, with a 128GB version starting at $US 499.99.
💥 The Quest 3 features a range of technical enhancements, including improved tech for optimal visual performance and full-color passthrough, which will enable the headset to also function as an AR device, enhancing digital experiences that can interact with real-world objects.
🤖 The Quest 3 launch also comes with a range of new techspeak references to wow you and your friends.
🌟 It’s a significant advance for Meta’s VR ambitions, which also points to its next-level metaverse push, which will largely be based in VR, but will also incorporate AR and mixed reality elements, enabling users to merge their real-world settings into these new, enhanced environments.
🕹️ Though it’s hard to see the metaverse future, as Zuck and Co. envision it, just yet. Right now, there’s just no major, compelling reason to pay for a VR unit, which Meta’s still hoping to shift, via the launch of its new, advanced VR units, along with new games coming to the experience.
🎮 Games are the key pathway into VR, with Meta hoping that its metaverse experience will eventually align with younger audiences who have grown up in gaming metaverse-type worlds.
🚀 But it’s all building blocks, it’s all checkpoints on the road, and as such, it’s a major milestone in Meta’s broader VR ambitions. Maybe it’ll get you to take a more serious look at. With the right applications, it could be the device that triggers a bigger VR trend.
