Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

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

At 90 degrees, the Meta 2 is twice the size of HoloLens' field of view. According to renowned publication Tom’s Guide, “The Meta 2 has HoloLens beat on a number of fronts.

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

We currently offer a native Unity SDK and continuously extend it through a C++ SDK based on OSVR (an open source AR/ VR platform with powerful, low-latency rendering). The Unity SDK allows developers to create immersive AR content using the powerful and familiar features of the Unity game engine. This SDK dramatically reduces the time required to build an AR application, and opens the door to Unity’s millions of established developers. Meta is also currently exploring other platform integration options. You can subscribe to our newsletter to stay up-to-date with the latest Meta 2 news.

What are the minimum PC system requirements?

If you’re already developing in Unity, your system is already powerful enough to support the Meta 2. The full minimum requirements are OS: Windows 10 (64-bit). Processor: Intel® Core™ Intel 7-4770 or AMD FX™ 9370, equivalent or better. Memory: 8GB RAM DDR3. Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 960 or AMD Radeon R9 290. Video Output: 1x HDMI 1.4b port. USB: 2x USB 3.0 ports 3D Engine: Unity 5.6 or higher. Hard Drive Space: 2 GB free space.

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.

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.
