Facebook is moving to re-shape reality with a camera lens, create virtual reality with a new app called Spaces, and make everyday tasks simpler with a new Messenger.
Those are the highlights CEO Mark Zuckerberg touted yesterday in San Jose at Facebook's annual F8 conference for software developers. Zuckerberg laid out the augmented reality feature as an online experience with cartoon avatars, 3-D stickers, and augmented reality "extending the physical world online." Spaces is a social virtual reality platform that lets owners of Oculus headsets and controllers create avatars based on photos of themselves.
First up though, Facebook is expanding the chatbot feature of its popular Messenger app.
