  • Eventually we'll use glasses for AR. That'll let us play a game of chess with a distant friend using a seemingly real chessboard

Facebook acquired Oculus Rift for a whopping $2 billion in 2014 at a time when virtual reality and augmented reality were really starting to become popular. The new camera technology lets you move around within the video scene and experience the content from different viewing angles.

In the short term, Facebook's play for augmented reality is going to look a lot like competing with Snapchat - and in a meaningful way, it is.

In the past, Zuckerberg has said that he wants live video to support all the "raw and visceral" ways people communicate.

Zuckerberg envisions the marriage of augmented reality and Facebook's camera feature enabling people to make even mundane chores, like doing the dishes, look entertaining with digital effects.

Woman arrested in Norton hostage hoax
After gaining access to the apartment, the occupants, identified as two adult males and two adult females, were questioned and released.

The news comes a day after Facebook lauched Facebook Spaces, a VR app that is created to let users hang out in virtual environments "as if you were in the same room". Users will be portrayed in the virtual reality environment with the body language that they do in real life. The firm already sells the Oculus VR headset but it has been relying on third-party developers to create apps for the headset.

One can also change the surrounding of that space and are provided with drawing tools to draw any three-dimensional objects to make their new world look lovely. But putting an augmented reality camera on your smartphone is an "effort to have you view the entire world through your phone, running Facebook".

Three days after a man broadcast himself committing murder on Facebook, the social platform was all about playfulness again. "Facebook Spaces is all about connecting with friends and family that you know and trust, and we're committed to making VR a positive place for all". That would, for instance, allow groups of friends to share Spotify playlists or to make a restaurant reservation through OpenTable that keeps everyone on the same page. It took Facebook more than two hours to take down footage of the grizzly murder of 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr committed by Stephens. That raised questions about Facebook's ability to monitor gruesome material on its site.
