Mark Zuckerberg looks to the future of the Metaverse

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and the company's leader in virtual reality, Andrew Bosworth, are teasing a prototype of a virtual or immersive reality device with new images.

Zuckerberg and Bosworth released images of two prototypes of the headphones and linked these concepts to Facebook's work on the Metaverse.

While the headphones the two are wearing aren't guaranteed to be real retail products, they do understand what's going on in Facebook's virtual reality lab.

The sunglasses Mark Zuckerberg wears are similar to the company's Oculus sunglasses. However, it defines it as Retina Resolution, a term borrowed from Apple for a display with such a high pixel density that individual dots are indistinguishable at a normal operating distance.

The headset that Bosworth wears is better designed and resembles the graphics and description of Apple's VR headset.

Aside from Zuckerberg's vague comments on the retina, there's no detailed description of what kind of headphones they want, what features they have, or they're just design models that don't work.

Since this is not an advertisement for a Facebook product, this ambiguity is predictable.

Mark Zuckerberg yearns for virtual reality devices

Although the company has released Ray-Ban smart glasses without a screen, which is a step towards more complex augmented reality glasses, Facebook's virtual reality lab is also teasing some prototypes that may not be available on Marlet.

This includes things like glasses that can move your face across the front of the VR headset. and research-based augmented reality glasses from Arya. There are also a number of proof-of-concept VR goggles that can show you the virtual world instead of the augmented reality world.

Mark Zuckerberg doesn't appear to be offering any salable headgear, but he is promoting what he calls the concept of a meta-universe. The company claims that it is a virtual world, and possibly the next version of the Internet.
