Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg confirmed the arrival of AR Glasses in the latest earnings call. He said that the company’s upcoming product will be the first smart glasses, which will be made by Ray-Ban in partnership with Essilor Luxottica.
The technical specifications of these smart glasses manufactured by the Franco-Italian firm are not yet revealed.
Mark Zuckerberg also outlined the creation of a virtual ‘metaverse’ where users would be able to ‘teleport’ into the digital space using AR and VR technology.
Work is going on on these smart glasses, the news of which was in the headlines for a long time. Reports that surfaced last year indicated that engineers from the ‘Project Aria’ team were experimenting with these eyewear.
Apart from the smart glasses, Facebook is also reportedly working on a new smartwatch, which could be given features like dual cameras and heart rate monitor. One of the two cameras can be used as a front camera, which means that through that camera you can enjoy the convenience of video calling. Whereas the second camera can be used to capture footage after detaching from the stainless steel frame. This smartwatch can be launched in the year 2022.
