the goal would have plans to release AR glasses in 2024as reported The edge. This, of course, within the framework of the complementarity of its famous metaverse. This first generation of augmented reality glasses would arrive the same year as Google’s proposal in the same sector.
Meta’s AR glasses are currently being developed under the code name of Nazare Project. The company plans to launch them no later than 2024, and would abandon reliance on Apple or Google operating systems. Since The edge explain that augmented reality glasses will have a “wireless device shaped like a mobile phone to download part of the information necessary for the operation of the glasses”.
Similarly, Meta’s augmented reality glasses They would have an operating system based on Android. This decision was made after plans to develop a Fuchsia-based operating system were abandoned by the company.
The idea of creating a custom micro-operating kernel for the device from a version of Google’s open-source Fuchsia operating system was scrapped late last year; partly because it wasn’t going to be ready in time for 2024.
Zuckerberg has confirmed that the first generation of Nazareth “They offer a full AR experience with 3D graphics, a wide field of vision and a socially acceptable design.” However, the company does not expect it to be a very popular device. Its autonomy will barely reach 4 hours of viewing; and Meta wants the glasses to be used indoors, primarily.
It is expected that two years later, Nazare Project launch a second version of your device. It would be “lighter and more advanced in design”. Meanwhile, a third generation would see the light of day in 2028, approximately, and of course it would have several improvements. However, for that to happen, we need a first generation of Meta AR glasses; and it looks like the company workers are fully focused on getting it done by the estimated date.
Nail a cheaper version of the glasses is also said to be in development. It arrives under the code name of hypernova, and would also land in 2024 with a display screen for notifications. In addition, they will have the possibility of pairing them to your mobile phone.
Despite the company’s projections for 2024, there can be no assurance that Nazare Project arrive for the estimated date. There is still a lot of work to do, and even the development of the operating system of the gadget is absent. With the latter, Meta intends to have a similar approach to the one he had with the Quest VR headset.
The main features of the Nazare project
Although there is still plenty of time before we see them in action, Zuckerberg and his team revealed some details from the technical section of the glasses of augmented reality. In fact, as he comments The edgeeveryone who has been able to try them “says it is one of the most impressive technical demonstrations they have experienced”.
- neural control. It will arrive in a wrist device that will accompany the glasses Nazareth Yes hypernova. The medium describes them as a tape that uses differential electromyography to measure electrical impulses from neurons in the arm. In this way, a phantom limb is created with which the user can interact with the glasses.
- Field of view. The Meta goggles should arrive with a 70 degree field of view. However, that’s a projection that could change, and the company is working on creating a device with a “socially acceptable” design.
- A weight of 100 grams. Four times heavier than ordinary glasses.
- microLED technology. Nazare Project you will be using expensive custom waveguides and also microLED projectors for your screen. We have already seen this latest technology in other devices, such as those from Apple.
