Zuckerberg shows off various uses of mixed reality with a pixelated Cambria viewer
Mark Zuckerberg announced yesterday that we would have more information about Project Cambria today, and the fulfillment of that promise has focused on the mixed reality experience. On his Facebook account he has posted a video of barely 1 minute in length in which he is seen playing with a virtual pet, among other things, but the viewer appears pixelated.
In the video, Zuckerberg interacts with his hands, without controls, with a small blue creature. We also see how the real environment merges with a virtual forest, how we can take notes in a notebook without taking off the visor, chat with our contacts or use a mixed reality application to exercise with a virtual personal trainer.
This mixed reality demonstration using the Project Cambria color Passthrough is accompanied by the news that the full SDK of the tools included in the Presence Platform will be made available to developers very soon. A demo application will also be released, The World Beyond, created with all its capabilities so that users can experience mixed reality for themselves in Quest 2, and which will be open source.
Finally, this afternoon Mark Zuckerberg and Jesse Schell, the CEO of Schell Games, will share their vision about the future of XR on the Facebook channel of the CEO of Meta, a conversation that you can follow through this link.
