Meta* submitted a $1,500 VR suite of Quest Pro

The CEO of Meta*Platforms Mark Zuckerberg at Meta* Connect 2022 announced the latest virtual reality garrison called Quest Pro. Although the device is a continuation of the Quest series, it has little to do with consumer-oriented garrisons that Meta* had previously produced. This is the most advanced VR garrison that Meta has ever produced.

One of the main features of Quest Pro is that there are four outer cameras that are designed to be visualized in the virtual space of what is happening in the real world. By doing so, the user can interact with a mixed reality, where virtual objects are placed on top of real ones. This option has been made possible by significant hardware improvements over Quest 2.

The Quest Pro is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2+ microprocessor, which is supplemented by 12 Gbytes of the operating memory and 256 Gbyte storage device. The design includes two displays supporting the 1920 x 1,800 pixel resolution. Support is provided for the tracking of the user's face's eyes and mimics, which may be useful for transferring human emotions to virtual space.

In addition to Meta,* introduced updated controllers. They look different and have a camera to track their position. According to available data, Quest Pro will be able to function autonomously for only one or two hours, which may not be enough for many potential users. It is possible to pre-order the purchase of Quest Pro for $1,500 from the time of its launch, and the first delivery of the device will start on October 25.
