Mark Zuckerberg shows off VR headset prototypes for the distant future



We already know that Meta (formerly Facebook) plans to launch its latest Meta Quest Pro VR headset later this year. Meanwhile, CEO Mark Zuckerberg is giving the world a rare look at several cool prototypes the company is testing.

The CEO took to Facebook and posted a short video showing off four unique VR headset prototypes, each with a specific function. None of them are ready for everyday use or as a finished product, but they all solve a piece of the puzzle that the company hopes to combine to deliver the best AR/VR experience in the distant future.

The goal, according to Zuckerberg, is to create something that can eventually pass the “Visual Turing test” and make virtual reality almost indistinguishable from the real world. That future is still a long way off, but the company is busy working on it.
