Facebook introduces Social VR for virtual reality meetings (video)
The presentation was made using Oculus Rift goggles and special Oculus Touch controllers, which allow you to simulate human hands and perform movements with them in virtual reality (this set is expected to appear on the market in approx. six months).
The social VR platform shown by Facebook is intended to use virtual reality to interact with users on social media.
During the conference, the speaker, using goggles and the social VR platform, made contact with his colleague, who was several dozen kilometers away. Then together they traveled to different places in the world, drew in virtual space objects that can then be used, and also took a selfie, which they put on Facebook.
Facebook announces that such use of VR can revolutionize internet contacts in the future, it will also allow virtual meetings and even conferences and cooperation taking place in a virtual reality environment.
