Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has demoed a new virtual reality headset that the company plans to release later this year, but he doesn’t want you to see the new tech just yet.

Zuckerberg posted a video using “Project Cambria,” a high-end virtual reality headset that the company first tested in October when it changed its name from Facebook to Meta.

Although the physical Cambria headset is pixelated in the video, it shows the display of the headset from Zuckerberg’s point of view.

Zuckerberg describes the experience as “mixed reality,” as the headset incorporates the real world around you onto the screen.

In the video, he plays with a little cartoon creature, opens a virtual workstation, and has a virtual fitness instructor walk into the room.

Virtual reality and mixed reality hardware are key to Zuckerberg’s ambition to turn Meta into a metaverse company: The metaverse refers to a future version of the internet accessed primarily through immersive technologies such as reality. virtual.

Reuters reported Thursday that Reality Labs, the Meta division that develops its VR hardware, has announced to staff that it will cut expenses.

A Meta spokesman confirmed to Reuters that its chief technology officer, Andrew Bosworth, had told staff that the division could no longer afford some projects.

Meta has already invested a lot of money in Reality Labs. The division generated net losses of $6.2 billion in the last two quarters.
