META QUEST 3
Meta is gearing up for Connect, its annual event devoted to all things VR, AR and the metaverse. This year, the company is once again set to show off a new VR headset, with the Meta Quest 3, as well as its next-generation smart glasses.
It’s also an opportunity for Meta to showcase some of its latest AI advancements, which will reportedly come in the form of new generative AI chatbots. This year will also mark the return of an in-person component to Connect, which has been online-only since 2020.
The main keynote will still be livestreamed for remote viewers, but the change will hopefully make for a more live event than the largely pre-recorded sessions of the past few years. The new frames are expected to come with better cameras and some new features, like livestreaming.
Meta has at least one other major piece of hardware in the works, the augmented reality glasses it’s been teasing since 2020. Those glasses, however, would be something of a precursor to full-fledged AR glasses.
