Jun 1

03:25 PM - 03:50 PM

Description

Meta’s core hand tracking technology represents a major step forward in bringing natural interaction and input methods to the metaverse. Will and Shannon, Meta Reality Labs product managers, will share more on our latest hand tracking technology offerings and how it works using computer vision and machine learning. Our team will also share our vision for the future of hand tracking for virtual reality and its many applications, particularly in fitness, which we see as a crucial category for the future of VR. We believe that taking advantage of hands-first inputs will allow developers to unlock powerful, more realistic fitness experiences for users. We'll be highlighting current VR developers leveraging our hand tracking tech to create meaningful and intuitive fitness experiences on Meta Quest, while sharing how other developers and customers can do the same.
