During the “Connect” conference, Meta (the new name of the Facebook group) teased the arrival of a new cutting-edge virtual reality headset. Now called Project Cambria, this device could land as early as next year.
Facebook has been in the center of media attention since the keynote “Connection”. There is no longer any question about naming the group led by Mark Zuckerberg by that name, because the entity that brings together the social network Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp and Oculus, is changing its name and is now called Meta.
During his conference, Meta raised the idea of the arrival of a new and cutting-edge virtual reality headset. At the time of this writing, this device is hidden behind the name Project Cambria. For some, this headset is none other than the recently leaked Oculus Quest Pro.
But beware: Meta has also turned its subsidiaries on its head by eliminating the Oculus brand. The company bought in 2014 for $2 billion no longer appears as the VR headset: it should now say Meta Quest instead of Oculus Quest, for both the app and the headset.
At the moment, it is not known what Meta will call its future Project Cambria. But what is certain is that it will land with a whole new generation of consoles, possibly next year. It will also talk about new lenses that will reduce the thickness of the device. Good point for its design and weight.
