Meta Connect 2022 live blog – Meta Quest Pro, Project Cambria and all the big news


I absolutely love the VR headset and use it every week to enjoy a mix of Best VR Games Abroad. But not everyone is positive about the current state of the industry; They still want something more than what the Oculus Quest 2 has to offer.

With the expectation that Project Cambria will raise the bar for what is out there, I asked Matt Hanson, our Managing Editor for Computing and Entertainment, to tell me what he wanted to see from his next generation device.

“I love the idea of ​​VR, but despite a few exceptions, I haven’t felt like VR has fulfilled its potential yet, so I want the Meta to really impress with whatever VR headset it shows.

“I want something that is immersive and gives me amazing VR experiences, while not being too cumbersome to set up and use. Many of the VR headsets I used ended up gathering dust because they were easy to use – and VR gaming wasn’t worth it. If Meta was serious On virtual reality while other companies seem to have lost interest, they should be ambitious.”

I’m certainly not going to argue with Matt here, the ergonomic, comfortable and powerful headphone is exactly the kind of device the Meta should reveal based on what he was teasing about. And with these kinds of improvements, it should be able to facilitate better and more immersive VR games than we’ve seen before – even better titles than already excellent games. Resident Evil 4 VR.

We just have to wait and see what the Meta will reveal in about five hours.

We’ve mentioned that the big announcement we’re expecting today is the full reveal of Project Cambria – which many rumors and leaks have said will be It’s called Meta Quest Pro (Although I wish it wasn’t because I don’t like the name).

When Meta announced the Cambria last year Connect, it told us that the headset would be an excellent follow-up to the Oculus Quest 2, providing a much more advanced experience at a higher price.

Based on that, we expect Project Cambria to boast some spec upgrades in terms of RAM, processors, battery life, and storage compared to the Quest 2. Although we already know that the new headset will come with some unique features we haven’t seen from a dead one before. .

The first is the passage of color. Quest 2 currently only has a black and white corridor, which means external cameras can only show you the real world in grayscale while you’re wearing it. Thanks to the new cameras, Cambria will be able to show the real world in full color which should help make any augmented reality or mixed reality experiences look more realistic.

The other big improvement is set on eye and face tracking. This will allow your default avatars to be more expressive, and as we’ve seen with PlayStation VR 2 demo will Allows NPCs to interact more realistically for you. We also hope that the eye-tracking feature will allow developers to use the slender view of Make games more graphically impressive Without the need to make huge improvements to the specifications of the speaker.
