Meta 2: Made for AR App Development

The Meta 2 arrives with features and capabilities designed for developing unique AR experiences

The Widest Field of View on the Market

At 90°, the Meta 2 has the widest field of view (FOV) available in AR, offering an immersive experience with photorealistic holograms.

Holographic 3D Content You Can Touch

Whether you’re building 3D architectural models or learning about human anatomy, you can touch, grab, push, and pull stunning 3D holograms in the Meta 2.

Enhance the World Around You

The Meta 2’s powerful optical engine overlays high-resolution photorealistic content on the physical world, while the clear visor enables you to see your immediate environment and make eye contact with those around you.

A User Interface Primed for Productivity

Meta’s user interface allows you to arrange 3D content in a manner that’s optimal for your particular workflow, making it ideal for the world of work.

More Than Just Hardware: Introducing Workspace

Workspace is Meta’s first-generation AR operating environment for spatial computing. Utilizing Meta’s neuroscience-inspired technology, users can reach out and touch holograms right before their very eyes. The Workspace features immersive 3D apps that are as easy to manipulate as their real-world counterparts, and will one day enable users to increase their productivity in a 3D environment. Meta was recently awarded Best-in-Show for Augmented Reality at Augmented World Expo, the world’s longest-running AR/VR conference.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When will the Meta 2 Development Kit ship?

The Meta 2 Development Kit is shipping now in limited quantities. Volume shipping will occur in mid Q3 2017. We'll be in touch with those who preordered as we get closer to shipping their order.

How are you doing positional tracking without an external sensor?

The Meta 2 Development Kit uses a positional tracking algorithm that fuses image features from the world, captured with onboard computer vision camera, with the wearer's acceleration and angular movements, captured with an onboard inertial measurement unit (IMU), to give a six degree of freedom positional tracking. Unlike other systems, Meta's solution to positional tracking uses a type of SLAM algorithm that does not require calibration or mapping the space ahead of time. It begins tracking the wearer's position immediately.

Does the Meta 2 support other game engines or development platforms?

We've been exploring other platform integration options. Keep an eye in this space!

How does the image projection system work?

The Meta 2 Development Kit uses an off-axis optical engine to form images using a single-element half-silver mirror, in which the optical axis of the aperture is not coincident with the mechanical center of the system. Left and right eye images from an LCD panel reflect off the inside of the visor (the half-silver mirror) into the eyes, forming a high-resolution stereoscopic 3D image at 20 pixels per degree, ensuring text readability. As well as being the optical element, the visor is partially reflective, which enables the wearer to see digital information overlaid on the physical world. With the visor transparent and the panel positioned above the eyes, wearers can make full eye contact and read each other's facial expressions, making the Meta 2 Development Kit ideal for collaboration. The visor and head straps are designed to comfortably accommodate wearing glasses underneath, removing the need for extra prescription lens.

How large is the Meta 2's field of view compared to the HoloLens?

The Meta 2's field of view is twice the size of HoloLens's field of view.
