Meta’s leg demo wasn’t real, but they will still be available soon.

VR metaverse legs

Earlier this week, Meta (Facebook) hosted their annual Connect conference and had a lot of exciting news to share. CEO Mark Zuckerberg spoke in depth about the Metaverse, the new Meta Quest Pro headset, and avatar legs in VR.

Interestingly, the big announcement that the company’s Horizon VR app will start adding legs to avatars received the most attention, more so than the physical products. It’s a big deal and will make the avatars feel more realistic. Unfortunately, it appears that Zuckerberg’s impressive display was nothing more than a good party trick, even if the legs are still “coming soon.”

During the nearly 90-minute presentation, the CEO of Meta enthused, “There is one more feature coming soon that is probably the most requested feature on our roadmap. Legs! I think everyone has been waiting for this!”

The video demo was extremely impressive. Virtual Mark and his friend on stage looked at his legs, moved them, and Mark even jumped into the air excitedly.

Turns out it wasn’t real, and the clip is just a preview of our future potential in VR. according to a staff member at UploadVR, an anonymous Meta spokesperson said “the segment featured animations created from motion capture.” Which means it was just a preview of what this feature would look like.

Unfortunately, that means it probably won’t be as impressive when the feature finally arrives. It’s worth noting that Zuckerberg explained how the feature would work, saying that Meta would use an AI model to predict the positions of a user’s entire body.

So while stylish avatar legs are coming soon, we’re not sure what they’ll look like. If you’re still interested in getting the highly upgraded Meta Quest Pro VR headset, aren’t worried about battery life, and can’t wait to get some virtual legs, reserve one today from the link below.
