Pre-order your Meta 2 Development Kit and Get the Most Immersive AR Glasses on Earth

The META 2 augmented reality (AR) glasses are faster, better, and more powerful than the first META 01. The 90° field of view, the 2560 x 1440 display resolution, and the included gesture recognition software propels META 2 to the top of the Immersive AR features ranking list. Video demo here under.


What is META 2?

Meta is “creating an experience that merges the art of user interface design with the science of the brain, creating ‘natural machines’ that feel like extensions of ourselves rather than the other way around.” 

With the Meta 2 Development Kit, you can grab, touch, and move digital objects – “holograms” – just like you do in the real world. It’s the most intuitive way to access digital content and fundamentally changes the way people collaborate, communicate, and engage with information and each other. Using natural hand motions means people don’t have to rely on clicks or buttons to manipulate holograms. They stay connected to the content, to each other, and the moment.
