Meta Connect, the company’s annual augmented and virtual reality event, is just over a month away. The newly renamed event will take place on October 11, Mark Zuckerberg in a Facebook post.

Like last year, the event will be virtual and streamed live on the Reality Labs Facebook page. There are few other official details for now. The meta link says more information on speakers and the day’s schedule “coming soon.”

But we already know a little about what to expect. It is likely that Meta will finally show off Project Cambria, its new high-end, which may be called Meta Quest Pro. In his Facebook post, Zuckerberg appeared to tease the big reveal with a photo of himself wearing headphones that were almost completely hidden. Zuckerberg also recently promised Horizon avatars after his own low-res VR image was mercilessly dragged.


It will also be the company’s first major VR event since Zuckerberg announced Facebook’s Meta rebrand at Connect last fall. At that time, he tried to formulate the metaverse and the role of the social network in it. But this vision was not always clear. And the idea of ​​a “metaverse” is still a source of (and sometimes ridiculed, as evidenced by the reaction to Zuckerberg’s avatar). Meta Connect will also be Zuckerberg’s latest opportunity to not only tout the company’s latest hardware, but also to try to build excitement for an eventual metaverse.
