Meta announced it will be hosting its second annual virtual reality conference, ‘Meta Connect’, on October 11th, this year.
There, people are set to “discover how the metaverse is being built by many and why collaboration is the key to it all.”
At last year’s event, Zuckerberg rebranded the company into ‘Meta’, signifying a major shift in focus to the metaverse. He also teased ‘Project Cambria’, the company’s next virtual reality headset.
In August, Zuckerberg announced that the headset would come out in October, noting that it will be the sequel to the Oculus 2, will focus on “social presence” with enhanced mixed reality features as well as face and eye-tracking, which will allow the device to copy the users’ facial expressions on the avatar.
