Meta is going above and beyond with its ambitious immersive metaverse plans with a new mechanical eyeball that can track human eye movements that will be sent to AR/VR hardware for testing.
Lately, meta has been heavily investing in robotics and showcasing how far ahead they are when it comes to scheming immersive metaverse experiences. Last year, Meta demonstrated a haptic glove prototype meant to let users feel virtual objects in the metaverse.
Just recently, Facebook showed off a thin synthetic skin called ReSkin, which could be used to generate human-like sensations for robotic limbs.The Gorgeous Danube Delta in 4k – from Tulcea Romania
Using the synthetic skin, robot parts can handle items as thin as 1mm in width without the worry of damaging them. It can also detect force as small as 0.1 Newton on objects as thin as 1mm.
Now, new patents from Facebook describe a human-like eyeball device coated in a skin-like layer, called “Two-Axis Mechanical Rotatable Eyeball.”Continue reading… “Meta Plans to Make Robotic Eyeball That Can Track Human Eye Movements for the Metaverse”
