The new Meta Quest Pro is now a reality. And not just virtual, this time. In the ideas of the CEO Mark Zuckerberg who signed the new entry, this is the door to the Metaverse, not so much – or not only – from a playful point of view, but above all to improve and strengthen the world of business and work. It was widely announced and was the real and anticipated star of the opening keynote of Meta Connect 2022, the developer conference of the parent company of Facebook.

The device has outward facing cameras that capture the sounds of the surrounding environment. The battery has been repositioned and is located on the back, distributing its weight more evenly while reducing the overall footprint. Present tracking sensors that can replicate the eye movements and facial expressions of users, creating the feeling that the avatars are making eye contact.
Artificial intelligence, this is how Meta prepares the Metaverse

Meta Quest Pro features balanced self-tracking controllers to provide TruTouch haptic feedback, which ensures precision in finger closing movements for accurate control. Meta is betting on these controllers and the idea that users will see them as a natural extension of hands in VR.
“The Metaverse will be a social experience”, is Zuckerberg’s leitmotif. “An incredible technology that gives so many opportunities. We believe in this vision, the more people and creators there are now in virtual reality and more brands in the Metaverse, it is a sign that the future is not so far away. We – he added – have been there since ‘beginning. Apart from the games – concludes the CEO of Meta – it will be a social experience “.
According to the CEO of Meta, one app out of 3 on the Quest store has millionaire revenues: a total of 33 apps achieved revenues of over $ 10 million, an increase from the 22 apps capable of achieving the same results, recorded in February 2022 The number of apps has doubled since 2021, with revenues of over $ 5 million
The Meta Quest Pro is an all-in submission for Zuckerberg. How it will be received will be a key test of efforts to steer Meta towards the creation of virtual reality and augmented reality hardware for the Metaverse. Reality Labs, the Meta division responsible for the development of the Metaverse, in fact lost 10.2 billion dollars in 2021 and 6 billion this year. That of the new viewer is a bet not to be mistaken. According to the company, one of the reasons the technology has not taken off is related to the hardware, which is still not good enough
Meta Quest Pro stands, in the ideas of the creator of Facebook, as a “virtual office”. During the keynote, Zuckerberg said that this viewer is “suitable for those who want to work in the Metaverse”, a largely different focus than Meta Quest 2. This is where partnerships with companies such as Autodesk, Adobe and Microsoft are born.

The VR Avatar Store will also be launched, as well as a number of features for Horizon Workrooms, the VR space for team collaboration. There will be more expressive avatars (in combination with the new headset’s eye movement tracking, which should ensure greater realism in facial expressions), workgroups with spatial audio, a personal office with virtual screens and color pass-through for increased productivity. The bet to save the Metaverse from rumors that it is a flop is now officially open
