Despite the fun nature of social posting and the use of the Quest 2 headset. This video may provide some core insight into his MR vision for Meta going forward.
Meta, Apple, Spatial Computing, XR Productivity
If Apple gets its way, spatial computing could be the next XR buzzword, and the XR market is already reacting to its marketing efforts, cutting Apple out of the existing immersive product space. .
A recent video from Meta could show the company’s commitment to providing productivity-based immersive solutions as it gears up for the Quest 3’s debut.
The company is already deeply committed to developing an enterprise-grade XR device, offering the “future of work” with its Meta Quest Pro device.
But recent news about the Quest Pro remains quiet. Meanwhile, Meta wants to debut its next MR headset, the Quest 3, alongside the Apple Vision Pro.
Vision Pro aims to replace your laptop screen with its spatial computing vision. This enables headset operators to interact with applications using hand tracking in 360-degree environments where hardware overlays AR content on real-world locations.
With the integrated Apple Workplace app, Apple touted the Vision Pro device as a productivity tool. The device will support his AR/VR/MR games and Metaverse content, but Apple is keen to debut an MR device that is more like a laptop than a game console.
Meanwhile, Meta will debut its Quest 3 device as a gaming headset apart from its Pro product. But Zuckerberg’s recent posts may suggest that Meta is seriously considering building a productivity-enhancing spatial environment to rival the Vision Pro in 2024.
