Personalize your own mixed reality office using Passthrough technology.
Facebook continues to roll out the hits at today’s Facebook Connect developer conference. Alongside a wave of game and hardware announcements, the company revealed Infinite Office, a collection of work-focused features perfect for creating your own virtual workspace.
Using the Oculus Quest 2 headset, you’ll soon have the ability to customize your own digital office with numerous virtual monitors capable of streaming your desktop PC in real-time. These monitors can even be snapped to real-world objects, such as a desk, allowing you to digitally enhance your physical environment.
Facebook has also announced a partnership with computer peripheral manufacturer Logitech to bring select products to the VR world, allowing users to type on a real keyboard while remaining in-headset. Future plans include opening up passthrough mode to developers so they can begin integrating their own apps with mixed reality support.
We saw a brief tease of this unique VR workplace solution this past May when Facebook’s head of AR & VR shared a small clip of the platform in use.
Facebook states that Infinite Office will release as an experimental feature for the Quest 2 this winter; no word yet on a full release date.
