Mark Zuckerberg: AR will bring advancements in art and media
Facebook plans to launch a pair of connected glasses, in collaboration with RayBan. At the same time, Mark Zuckerberg shares his statement.
“You know, in the future, all the media, all the arts, all the television screens will have no longer need to exist physically. It could just be an app that your glasses will project onto the wall. ” That’s what he said at the French technology conference VivaTech, according to the New York Post.
“I can just snap my fingers, and here’s a hologram,” he added. “It’s going to be incredibly powerful”.
In fact, the phenomenon is quickly spreading beyond games to a bunch of other use cases. In the end, the AR will end up occupying an important place in the next big computing platform, after phones and PCs.
Augmented reality: a huge help for everyone
According to him, the creation of digital products will allow people to focus on creative projects instead of having to physically produce goods. He plans to sell these virtual items on a Facebook application store. These objects would be associated with the AR glasses of his company.
Indeed, if he doesn’t think that phones and computers will become obsolete, he thinks that augmented reality will become just as important.
He also launched theexercise class idea that can be tracked using VR headsets. Thus, the company would compete with fitness companies like Peloton.
