In a podcast dedicated to new technologies, Facebook’s CEO announced that, by 2030, its Virtual Reality glasses will allow users to teleport
There are no limits for Mr Facebook. In a recent episode of the well-known American podcast “The Information’s 411”, Mark Zuckerberg announced the arrival of an important innovation in the field of Virtual Reality. It’s about teleportation. No, it’s not a joke. The founder of the world’s most widely used social platforms has assured us that within 10 years the new models of Oculus Rift – the virtual reality glasses developed by the Californian high-tech company acquired by Facebook in 2014 – will allow us to meet friends, play games and visit faraway places without moving from our sofa at home. A real revolution in the Virtual Reality sector. Here are Zuckerberg’s words: “By 2030, the new generations of Oculus will allow users to teleport from one place to another without moving from their couch. Not only for gaming and entertainment, but also for work.
Zuckerberg: ‘By 2030 we will have teleportation’
The new generation of Virtual Reality glasses will make it possible to transform today’s video calls into real virtual rooms. Inside, it will be possible to ‘physically’ meet the other participants and interact with them in ways that were previously unimaginable. During the podcast, Zuckerberg announced that the new technologies being developed today ‘will allow all users to be given a personal avatar. This will allow interactions with other avatars, including through very realistic facial expressions’. He then went on to criticise his eternal ‘rival’ Elon Musk and his futuristic Neuralink project. I don’t think,” said Zuck, “that millions of people will be willing to have their heads drilled into them to use augmented virtual reality or communicate directly with a PC.
