Cambria VR Headset & Virtual Pets

On Thursday, Meta, the parent company of Facebook, teased its new high-end virtual reality headset, code-named Project Cambria, by showing CEO Mark Zuckerberg using the next-gen VR display.

The World Beyond will only be available in “full-color pass-through mode” on Meta’s future Cambria headset, but a demo version will be available soon through Meta’s App Lab, according to Zuckerberg.

Later this year, Project Cambria will be released. The device, characterized as “a laptop for the face” in a recent study, intends to integrate remote work into virtual reality and is said to cost $799 and up. We hope more functions such as android transfers are integrated into the VR, giving users more options to explore.

Meta is expected to release four new VR headset models, including Cambria. A new version of Meta’s low-cost Quest headset, which presently costs $299, will be released in 2023. Cambria and Quest will then be updated with newer versions in 2024.
