A couple of days ago, Meta, the company formerly known as Facebook, shared teaser trailers of its next-gen headset codenamed Project Cambria. In contrast to the company's previous headsets, the upcoming device won't just be a VR one but appears to also double as an MR headset as it features color passthrough as shown in the video below:
In addition to the video above, another video was shared showing CEO Mark Zuckerberg wearing the actual headset on (albeit blurred). It shows an in-house experience called The World Beyond that merges interactive virtual elements in the physical world through full color passthrough. A similar experience is also said to be available sometime soon on the Quest 2 through App Lab.

Details such as the final design, specs or price tag haven't been revealed at this time but Meta's Cambria Project headset is expected to launch sometime this year. But given that it is being termed as a "high-end VR headset" in the video above, it could be priced higher than the Meta Quest 2.
