Facebook‘s virtual reality head and soon-to-be CTO Andrew Bosworth and Mark Zuckerberg took to their social media channels to tease the new VR technology.

Zuckerberg and Bosworth posted photos of themselves playing with the new technology. Both Facebook executives were able to give fans an inside look at what goes on behind the scenes at the company’s virtual reality lab. In Bosworth’s Tweet, he said, “Excited to get an early look at some of the technologies that will underpin the metaverse.” He also ensured tech aficionados that the company is looking for different ways to improve the concept of their VR headsets and prototypes.

The headset Zuckerberg is seen wearing appears to share aesthetic similarities to Facebook’s Oculus headsets. However, he does mention that the particular prototype has a “retina resolution,” showing off the capability of the high pixel density. Bosworth’s on the other hand, draws similarities to Apple’s rumored VR headset as it is seen with a large strap that goes around the head to hold it together.

Since this is not a product announcement from the tech giant, fans should not expect a release date anytime soon. It is important to note that Facebook has often teased many prototype releases in the VR labs and many do not make it to market. Nonetheless, the social media posts give tech lovers another look at how Facebook is working on their metaverse.
