Facebook CEO Sees Augmented Reality in Platform’s Future

During the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit in San Francisco, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that while it is “a bit further out,” his company is working on augmented reality. Facebook signaled its intentions regarding virtual reality when it acquired Oculus, but augmented reality presents new challenges, according to Facebook’s Michael Abrash, and is likely to take longer. “The implications for a Facebook-driven AR system are pretty obvious,” suggests TechCrunch. “Imagine, maybe, walking down the street and getting a heads-up display for the number of likes a business has.”
