Mark Zuckerberg made his vision for VR public when he acquired Oculus for $2 billion USD in 2014. The Facebook CEO took to the keynote at OC3 to unveil his endeavours in Social VR, announcing a set of plans for Oculus’s Metaverse. Avatar VR is ground zero of the project, allowing users to embody a customizable avatar that can match hand and body movements. Zuckerburg also announced the Parties and Rooms project. Using your own Avatar, you will soon be able to enter a room with friends and transport to a 360° video. Once live 360° feeds become commonplace, users will be able to socialize virtually in real-time. Parties and Rooms will be available for the Gear VR in the coming weeks, and for the Rift in early 2017. Take a look at the video above for a demonstration from Zuckerberg himself.
