Zuckerberg Says Facebook Working On Augmented Reality

According to a comment made by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit in San Francisco, California, Facebook is currently working on augmented reality technology, but, he says, it’s “a bit farther out.” It comes as no surprise to those who recall that early last year; Facebook purchased Oculus VR for $2 billion.

Oculus’ chief scientist Michael Abrash told the press that virtual reality is presently “past the knee of the curve” and has already arrived. Augmented reality, however, has its own set of problems. Thus it is taking time to make it feasible.

Abrash stated: “It’s very interesting; it’s something we’d all use if it worked well. It’s kind of seamless. Maybe it’ll be contacts (or glasses). You’ll have something on and it’ll be VR and AR as you choose. But right now the VR tech is past the knee of the curve. For AR, it’s harder. There are a whole host of challenges — how you do the optics and displays and get photos onto the eyes, how you have something that’s socially acceptable and comfortable all day. I think VR is here now, I think AR will be here, but it’s a long road to get there.”

As anyone with a 3DS knows, the technology is not new. It has perhaps simply become more well-known in the past few months since Microsoft’s HoloLens hit the news. Project X-Ray, Microsoft’s augmented reality game, was actually featured in the live Windows 10 devices event on Tuesday.

Zuckerberg said very little about Facebook’s specific plans, he did speak at length about virtual reality. He believes it could be the next big computing platform. He concluded: “I’m really looking forward to being able to capture not just a photo but to really capture the experience.”
