Mark Zuckerberg demos AR game with upcoming high-end headset — could it be a new pet simulator?

Meta released a video of CEO Mark Zuckerberg showing off the mixed-reality capabilities of Project Cambria, the upcoming, high-end VR headset poised to hit store shelves later this year.

In the video, Zuckerberg is wearing Project Cambria on his head, but unfortunately, we can’t see the headset clearly because it’s deliberately obscured with a pixelated, blur effect. However, we can see what the head-mounted display is capable of as Zuckerberg demos a cool AR game called The World Beyond.

Viewers can see the Meta CEO interact with an adorable, blue-and-purple creature. The cute pet is Oppy, a character Meta showed audiences during the 2021 Facebook Connect livestream.

According to Meta, The World Beyond is made possible with the Presence Platform, a set of machine learning and AI capabilities, as well as natural hand and voice interactions, that help developers build mixed reality experiences.

The video shows that Project Cambria can blend two worlds, the simulated and physical realms, as the Meta CEO throws a virtual ball against a real-life wall and Oppy chases it.
