Zuck Confirms Facebook's Smart Glasses Will Be Its Next Stab at Hardware
Facebook announced its collaboration with Ray-Ban back in 2019, and now the augmented reality glasses will become the company’s next hardware release.
Virtual reality is moving beyond gaming, and expanding its horizons into other forms of entertainment, work, fitness and social media. For Facebook, these glasses seem to be the gateway into its virtual ecosystem - a more three-dimensional internet that you can interact with.
Facebook has some heavy competition, as Apple, Oppo and Samsung are also all rumored to be working on smart glasses. Though Microsoft and Google have been making AR glasses for years, this "future" of wearables and VR expanding to social platforms could arrive as early as the end of 2021.
