Zuckerberg Offers Condolences After Killing Posted On Facebook

Facebook showed off VR selfie sticks at is developer conference last year. Expect even more sophisticated tricks at F8 2017

If anything, Facebook had been playing catchup to Snapchat on lenses.

As a more concrete example, Zuckerberg says that his augmented reality vision will enable friends to watch TV together by casting a TV app on a blank wall, doing away with physical TV sets.

Facebook has been always about connecting with people in a virtual world and Mark Zuckererg late on Monday in the 10th edition of Facebook's F8 Conference showcased a new fun way of connecting with people - alternate realities.

As for Act 2, the Facebook CEO outlined a plan to out-innovate in the space.

"I think everyone would basically agree that we do not have the science or technology today to build the AR glasses that we want", Zuckerberg said. It comprises of two creative tools namely, Frame Studio and AR Studio.

Other developers can however apply and be added to the roster. The company has said it has thousands of people who review postings, which, when flagged, are typically reviewed within 24 hours.

There were too many burns to count regarding Snapchat from the mouth of Zuckerberg.

After a few somber seconds it was back to talk of how technology - particularly augmented reality - can be used to build community.

F8 is showing no sign of slowing down.


Facebook's AR platform also has high-powered graphics that can turn everyday objects into fantastical, otherworldly experiences.

The conference is a chance for Zuckerberg and his executives to wax poetic about all they ways they're changing the world, while also getting brands excited to sell things on Facebook.

But augmented reality could be different, as Snapchat has already defined what some of these features can be, like novelty beards or objects that hover around a user's head.

Jokes aside, Facebook is really hoping this platform takes off.

In one instance, Mr. Zuckerberg showed how a photo of a room could be filled with Skittles with the click of a button. Basically, imagine being able to add a sticky note to nearly any real world object so that your friends (or others) can see it later.

He spoke about three key uses for AR: to display information such as arrows appearing on the streets to give directions; to add digital objects to the real world, in the way that Pokemon Go did, and to enhance existing objects such as your home or face.

Zuckerberg said that it would take time for the AR Studio platform to take shape. "Everything Facebook showed is pretty far ahead of Snapchat".

Facebook Inc.is trying to seize on the technology known as augmented reality, a mix of the real and digital worlds best known from the hit smartphone game Pokémon GO, Reuters reports.

Facebook also unveiled an early version of social virtual reality, in which users could create avatars to meet their friends in a "space", explore 360-degree photos, or use the messenger app to make video calls from their virtual world.
