Meta hopes to use its Project Cambria VR headset to replace your PC

Before you get too excited about Project Cambria, the Meta CEO states that it will be “more focussed on work use cases and eventually replacing your laptop or work setup.” While Meta suggests that its metaverse headset is all work and no play, it’ll hopefully double as an Oculus Quest 2 upgrade that runs the best VR games with ease. Whether Project Cambria inadvertently turns out to be a suitable upgrade for your gaming PC VR setup or not, it may offer insight into the Oculus Quest 3‘s design and performance.

Meta hasn’t really talked about what could be its next greatest VR headset since announcing Project Cambria last year. However, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has stated that the company expects to deploy its next-generation virtual reality device later this year, with the goal of replacing your current computer or laptop. Following a Meta earnings call, Zuckerberg announced the announcement in a Facebook post (via PC Gamer), stating that Project Cambria will be “a higher-end headset” than the Meta Quest 2. The device would have “better ergonomics and full colour pass-through,” according to Zuckerberg, as well as “eye and facial tracking” technologies.
