Facebook unveils AR software and confirm plans for futuristic 'mind control' map

Facebook unveils AR software and confirm plans for futuristic 'mind control' map

A recent push by Facebook to add camera features to its suite of smartphone apps will help the company popularize similar features, Zuckerberg said.

Spaces is now in beta stage and allows Facebook users to hang out with their friends in VR environment.

And now you can use this new technology too.

"If you take one thing away from today, this is it: we are making the camera the first augmented reality platform", said Zuckerberg in his F8 keynote.

Posting on his own Facebook profile after his speech, Zuckerberg said, "We all know where we want augmented reality to get: glasses or eventually contact lenses that look and feel normal and let you overlay all kinds of information and digital content on the real world".

Analyst Jan Dawson, of Jackdaw Research, said Facebook's new tools and features were impressive but added that "most of them won't be in users' hands anytime soon". Facebook has launched Snapchat-like "stories" feature in Instagram to compete with Snapchat.

U.S. threatens more pressure on Syria after missile strikes
United States officials informed Russian forces ahead of the missile strikes, and avoided hitting Russian personnel. Russian Federation joined the war on Assad's behalf in 2015, turning the momentum in his favor.

The AR Studio tool has three inputs to trigger augmented reality effects: Face Tracker (not identity or facial recognition), Sensor data, such as the gyroscope and location, and Scripting APIs to pull in data from other apps and respond to user inputs in real time.

Registration follows the same rules as past year with pre-sign-up to get updates.Facebook has personally invited partners and everyone else who applied during the registration period, had to provide an explanation about why they want to go and why they should be there. Facebook Spaces is a new VR app through which you can interact with your friends and family in a virtual environment no matter where they live. Rumor has it that Apple's 10th anniversary iPhone will include dual-lens cameras on both the front and back with augmented reality features, and Apple CEO Tim Cook has been bullish on AR in a slew of statements over the past year.

So if you find it annoying now how people walk around staring at their phones - you've been warned.

Facebook also announced a bevy of updates to Messenger, its increasingly independent messaging app. Now, Messenger wants to do the same for businesses, creating a "yellow pages" of sorts that let companies communicate with their customers. This will make the Solo Virtual Reality an enjoyable friend gathering. The idea is simplify what might otherwise require a flurry of texts and sharing of links. That raised questions about Facebook's ability to monitor gruesome material on its site. And we have a lot of work, and we will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this from happening.

Business Achievements are paid weekly listings that recognize the milestones of companies and their employees.
