Drunk, Meta offers a VR headset at almost 2000 euros

During its Meta Connect 2022, Meta was able to present the Meta Quest Pro headset and the new features to come for the Metaverse that we are talking about in this news. The opportunity therefore to discover a new mixed reality headset which is surprising both for its characteristics but also and above all for its pricing.

This Meta Quest Pro is nothing other than what was called Project Cambria a short time ago and this tool does not really have to do with the Meta Quest 2 VR headset since it is of a mixed reality device. It is therefore also in addition to the game, thought to be a portal for the famous Metaverse that Mark Zuckerberg’s company is fantasizing about. It is also thinner than its little brother VR and takes on the lines of a Microsoft HoloLens 2.

Unlike the Quest 2, it offers an increased resolution of 2160 x 2160 pixels, 75% higher contrast and a 50% faster processor. Meta’s device also has cameras capable of performing eye and facial tracking, which, as you might expect, allows facial expressions to be reproduced in near real time for the Metaverse. Zuckerberg explains:

If someone smiles or frowns, their avatar should be able to express it.

More ergonomic joysticks

For controllers, Meta also introduces the Meta Quest Touch Pro. These have three sensors that allow the headset to precisely locate their positions in space for ultra-realistic tracking. The Touch Pro also have a latest generation haptic engine to give you the impression of “feeling” things. A bit like the movie Ready Player One.

The Meta Quest Pro is expected on next october 25 and will still cost 1800 euros. With this price, clearly it is hard to imagine anything other than professional use and it may be difficult to convince the general public.
