VR Headset:

The main plan is to change from smartphones and laptops to VR headsets. The basic idea here is instead of video conferencing, the old one we can go with a VR headset. Facebook is creating its Horizon Workrooms to interact with colleagues in virtual reality. Workers can create avatars ( cartoon-like characters ) and can communicate with colleagues in virtual meetings. While Horizon Workrooms continue to work in beta testing to bring new technology.

And the launch of this workroom during this pandemic would connect people everywhere. People would continue to work with some restrictions. While you are in a Zoom meeting, you will have the option to turn off the camera/or microphone but with Horizon you can actually able to watch and engage with your colleagues’ virtual avatars. You can visualize them standing up, giving a presentation, and raising hands in the meeting, and instantly you will know who is not present, even though their avatar is there.
