The Morning After: Meta’s next-generation VR headset leaked

The Meta Quest Pro headset is due to arrive next month, but there are always leaks to spoil the party. In a video from Ramiro Cardenas, you can see a black three-camera headset on the front that resembles the minimal glimpses we’ve seen from a Project Cambria headset. Cardenas said that multiple devices (titled “engineering samples”) were present Left in the hotel room. Excuse me.

We’ve also taken a closer look at a pair of new consoles, with a new design that replaces previous consoles. The packaging says “Meta Quest Pro” – so that’s probably the name. The hype may have died down, but the technology continued to advance. Expect better motion tracking, higher quality screens, and more.

Virtual reality should get another boost over the next 12 months. Alongside the new Meta headset, Sony’s PS VR 2 headset is set to debut next year. In fact, expect to hear more about PlayStation VR titles Later today.
