Facebook Finally Has A Virtual Reality Product

Facebook Finally Has A Virtual Reality Product

People crave to be with people they care about, and if they can't do that in person, the next best thing to being with your loved one is through the VR world.

F8 developer attendees are all getting a free Giroptic iO 360 connected camera, Schroepfer said, positing 360-degree imaging (and then virtual-reality 360-degree video) as the next step beyond mere 4K video.

Snapchat may have upgraded itself with the new technology with the addition of Augmented Reality Selfie filters and masks; it still has the absence of a platform for the developers where they can contribute with their creativity.

You hear the person or people engaging in the conversation, but you're seeing them all in a virtual world.

What Facebook is offering, at least for now, sounds a lot like Snapchat's World Lenses feature that was introduced yesterday.

Zuckerberg and his team have a 10-year plan for creating more advances in both virtual reality and social media communications.

Big-time games begin Packers' 2017 schedule
Kansas City had the AFC's second-highest point differential at +78, but that was less than half of New England's (+191) in 2016. The second matchup comes two weeks later when the Falcons travel to New Orleans for a Christmas Eve game.

Why does Facebook want to build AR glasses? This differs from the commonly held industry belief AR technology will be successfully deployed through smart glasses.

Abrash is clearly trying to set expectations that the ultimate, sci-fi like AR glasses are not around the corner. And even though we're going to talk about it at F8, we're not going to release it all at once even though this is kind of the next chapter.

Eventually, people would use augmented reality on eyewear, he said, although he did not give any details about possible Facebook hardware.

"AR has tremendous viral potential because it leverages mobile devices already in most end users' pockets, with service availability in the home, public spaces, and workplaces", he wrote in an email sent to ITBusiness.ca, noting that AR is forecast to surpass VR in total revenue opportunity by 2019.

One thing Facebook certainly will want to do is ensure that the technology can be monetized in the real world. Facebook VR guru Rachel Rubin Franklin explained onstage: The company is using artificial intelligence to suggest how you should look. In a video shown on stage, a woman completely debilitated by ALS typed with her thoughts.

Facebook kicked off its annual F8 developer conference earlier this week, and augmented reality was the big story.

You move the virtual pieces by reaching out into space as you watch on your phone -until your state outlaws holding your phone while eating breakfast.

Smartphone owners flocked to the game in droves and public areas were filled with people wandering around looking for creatures to catch. "But over last couple of years we've started to see primitive versions of these use cases on our cameras and phones". Apple can take what it learns from the way we use Clips to refine its own augmented reality plans. Plus, we got to see the beginnings of Facebook's own moonshot projects, courtesy of a former Googler. It's a safe bet we'll get a look at iOS 11 for the iPhone and iPad, and that would be a flawless time to also talk about augmented reality.

Ignoring Snapchat's place in history, Zuckerberg declared: "We're going to make the camera the first mainstream augmented-reality platform".

Here's what's worth knowing about Facebook's AR ambitions so far - and what we're still wondering about.

While Snapchat gives its users the ability to superimpose fun and goofy 3D content and texts into their disappearing photos and videos, Facebook is ready to give their users a bit more.
