Facebook owner Meta Platforms told advertising agencies that the technology that blends the virtual and physical universes could begin to turn into a reality for customers in a couple of years, giving more details of its vision for the formation of the metaverse.

Mixed reality (MR) technology could allow an individual wearing an MR headset to use an actual world item to trigger a virtual world response, such as hitting a video game character with a cricket bat, for example.

It is one of the three sorts of extended reality technologies often connected with the metaverse. Extended reality exists, with mobile games like Pokemon Go, however, players can't influence the computerized world with an actual item in the game. Virtual reality headsets, similar to Meta's Oculus, submerge clients into a fully virtual world where they can act according to the environment.

Some blended reality headsets are accessible, however, they are not yet intended for general customers. Microsoft's HoloLens 2, which was presented in 2019, retails for $3,500 (generally Rs. 2.61 lakh) and is designed for workplace use.

At its yearly Connect conference in October, Meta reported Project Cambria, a headset that will feature blended reality capabilities and involves face and eye-tracking. The headset is believed to be launched this year.

The roundtable with agencies needed the lacked detail on what ad formats could be created for the metaverse, or what certain controls would be set up to keep brands from showing up close to unacceptable content or actions, the executive said.
