How to Share Pics On Facebook When We All Live In Computers
Facebook believes that one day the user can take snapshot with virtual selfie sticks, vacant in virtual reality. As part of its F8 Developers Conference, the company on Wednesday showcased a “Social VR” experience illustrating how people might get together after the technological singularity renders our weak flesh obsolete in virtual reality.
The video, which you can watch above, shows two friends hanging out in a virtual recreation of London. They’re represented by ghostly white 3D-rendered hands and faces rather than full bodies. One of them pulls out a virtual selfie stick to take
a picture of the scene.
It owns Oculus, perhaps the world’s best-known virtual reality company, and its intent is to use the technology to break down barriers separating people from one another. In the not-too-distant future, you and a friend could don virtual reality glasses, create avatars of yourselves and meet up in digital environments to play games or just hang out and chat.
For example, Gear VR headsets let you watch videos alongside other people and have basic conversations while doing so. Think about it: Soon, you could get all of your socializing done from your computer chair with a headset strapped to your face.
