Zuckerberg to transform Facebook New Camera to depict reality

Facebook's new tool Precise Location tool is almost the same as Snap's new feature, also announced on Tuesday, World Lenses. Oddly enough, it looks a lot like the virtual world Second Life, now more than a decade old. Spaces is launching in beta for Oculus Rift and Touch on Tuesday and is available at the Oculus Store.

At Facebook's developer conference F8 today, the company announced its new software platforms that mix augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality.

Facebook has developed some clever tools to turn a two-dimensional camera image into a three-dimensional model into which animated effects can be added.

Last year, CEO Mark Zuckerberg unveiled Facebook's 10-year road map that calls for powerful technologies to radically alter how people connect with friends and family and the world at large. Instead, it will be the phone in your hand. The conference will explore Facebook's new technology initiatives and products.

Rachel Rubin Franklin, the former head of the Sims video game franchise, said it lets you spend time with people and gives "the essence that you're really there together".

Facebook's annual developer conference aka Facebook F8 will be live streamed at FBF8.com. It's clearer than ever that VR and particularly AR are what Zuckerberg views as the best way to do that.

That said, there's still plenty of info that everyday users will find interesting. There are new analytics tools and more location information to draw from. The belief played a big role in his $2-billion purchase in 2014 of Irvine virtual reality technology start-up Oculus VR. While its influence is projected to grow, the same can be said of its mistakes. "That's it so far".

Again, even Zuckerberg acknowledges that it's a long road ahead.

The Facebook founder also briefly addressed a tragedy that took place Monday, when a man posted video of a murder on Facebook. Facebook mentioned it would be expanding bots to work in group chats a while ago, and since then we haven't seen that actually happen. Here are the details about each proposal as well as Facebook's argument against each of the requests brought by shareholders. Cameras are said to be part of the experimental mix and so is brain scanning (the distant promise of telepathy is something that fascinates Zuckerberg). There is word that Facebook will talk about some new hardware that's being developed in its labs. "We're all about extending the physical world online". But in the last couple of years, we've started to see primitive examples of AR on phones in the camera.
