Here is the high-end virtual reality headset Meta Quest Pro

Images and later a video of a “Meta Quest Pro” virtual reality (VR) headset have surfaced online, posted to Facebook by Ramiro Cardenas, who claims the device was left in a bedroom. hotel (Thanks, Peter! via Reddit). The featured device resembles the Project Cambria headset that Meta has been teasing publicly since late last year, and resembles the one spotted in leaked setup videos.

The video shows Cardenas removing the device from its packaging, revealing a black headset and controller with what looks like an updated design. While the headset has three cameras on the front, the controllers feature a design that ditches the hollowed-out loop design that houses the sensors for something sturdier.

The packaging has the “Meta Quest Pro” label stamped in the upper left corner and a graphic showing the VR headset and controllers. Cardenas also provided a close-up of the label stuck to the box, which reads “Not for resale – engineering sample”, and said The edge that the person who stayed in the room has since claimed the helmets.

We expect to hear all about Project Cambria/the “Quest Pro” and its other plans for the Metaverse, AR, and VR.
