The new Gear 360 degree camera and the Gear VR headset, powered by Oculus, which has been on the market since November, has been promoted at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where Zuckerberg assured the crowd that virtual reality is “going to be the most social platform.”
“VR is the next platform, where anyone can create and experience anything they want,” Zuckerberg said. The 31-year old promised to make Facebook “the best platform for 360 video,”he said, to make users“feel like you’re actually there.”
“Imagine being able to sit in front of a campfire and hang out with friends anytime you want. Or being able to watch a movie in a private theater with your friends anytime you want. Imagine holding a group meeting or event anywhere in the world that you want. All these things are going to be possible,” the CEO added.
