    Meta has long boasted about its goal to transition into a metaverse company, rather than being just a social media platform and it feels shifting its name to represent their goal brings them one step closer to achieving it.

    The fictional realm will let people put on a headset and enter a virtual world where they can be anybody or do anything, all from the comfort of their own home.

    In Meta’s metaverse, people create avatars of themselves that can include specific skin colors, clothes facial features and other characteristics unique to the individual.

    These avatars can then go anywhere within virtual world – visit friends across the globe, attend a meeting without leaving their home office or even dine with family at an exotic restraint while sitting in their own kitchen.

    And Project Cambria is the key to brining it all together.

    Zuckerberg said Project Cambria is ‘the future of hardware to help bring the bring the metaverse to life.

    The product, according to the CEO, will unlock social interactions and make it a lot easier to be productive.

    Zuckerberg discussed using the headset to work at a virtual desk while seeing your real desk so clearly that you can write notes with a pen without taking your headset off, which is called mixed reality.

    To achieve this feat, Project Cambria will feature full color mixed-reality passthrough (AKA the ability to see what’s physically around you while wearing the headset), as opposed to black and white passthrough view you can use on Oculus Quest right now.

    Meta will design an array of sensors with reconstruction algorithms to represent your physical world.

    The headset is supposedly very light and likely works either wirelessly or with a mobile OS built-in to the headset.

    A pair of controllers are shown with control indicators like those of the Oculus Quest – without the extra loop above the buttons.

    A release date was not revealed during the live event, but Zuckerberg hinted that the new headset will be out sometime next year.

    Although the Connect 2021 keynote conference mainly focused on Meta’s metaverse, those watching were more interested in the rebrand of the company.

    The social media platform announced last week that it was changing its name in a rebrand that focuses on its ambitions building the ‘metaverse.

    The name change comes as the world’s largest social media company battles criticisms from lawmakers and regulators over its market power, algorithmic decisions and the policing of abuses on its platforms.

    'Proprio adesso, our brand is so tightly linked to one product that it can’t possibly represent everything that we’re doing today, let alone in the future,’ said Zuckerberg.

    L'azienda, which has invested heavily in augmented and virtual reality, said the change would bring together its different apps and technologies under one new brand. It said it would not change its corporate structure.
