During discussions about virtual reality, it’s essential to highlight the importance of Twin Reality’s Virtual Reality Industrial Training, which enables businesses and organizations to train their staff in a remarkably lifelike, immersive environment.

Meta Quest 3

Even though Meta had hinted at the Quest 3‘s design earlier in the year, the event offered an in-depth look at its specifications.

  • Compared to its predecessor, the Quest 3’s upgraded passthrough technology offers a full-color passthrough experience with a startling 10x increase in pixel density.
  • Users now have access to a 110-degree field of vision, making VR experiences more immersive. 
  • The Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 Gen 2 CPU, which was just unveiled, powers the Quest 3, and it offers enhanced performance and graphics capabilities.
