The Future of XR According to @CixLiv
After watching #MetaConnect2023, @CixLiv maintains his prior assertions. Despite the great hardware, he anticipates that the sales of Quest 3 would not surpass that of Quest 2. In his words, the Quest 3 is “a great headset on paper,” boasting a GPU that's two times faster than any other standalone, the first true consumer passthrough headset, and features like depth cameras and pancake lenses. Despite these fantastic specs, @CixLiv found the event lacking energy, expressing a desire for more enthusiasm in the XR sector akin to Steve Jobs' era.
Knoxlabs Perspective: Accessibility and Beyond
At Knoxlabs, our mission aligns with making VR and XR more accessible to everyone. We understand and appreciate @CixLiv's insights. The hardware specifications of devices like Quest 3 certainly paint a promising picture. However, success in this industry goes beyond just hardware. It’s about creating ecosystems, nurturing communities, and ensuring accessibility and affordability for all users, from beginners to advanced XR enthusiasts.
Upcoming Headsets and Industry Evolution
Furthermore, @CixLiv hints at the involvement of major companies like Apple, Nintendo, and Google in the XR headset arena, closely watching the advancements by Valve and others. He suggests the imminent unveiling of new headsets, focusing on diverse age groups and demographics.
It's important to note that the overall success and adoption of XR technology hinge not just on the introduction of new hardware but also on the seamless integration and the experience offered to the users. The focus on children's content and standalone VR by companies like Meta, as pointed out by @CixLiv, indicates a significant direction in the industry, aiming to capture younger demographics.
So, Meta Connect is tomorrow. Let me make some hypotheses of the future of XR in the next few years.— CIX (@CixLiv) September 26, 2023
