Mark Zuckerberg showcases Meta’s latest headset with a video showing him fencing with two Olympians. In mixed reality, of course.

Zuckerberg is a big fan of fencing and even captained the fencing team in high school.

In an Instagram video, he fences with two professionals: Olympic champion Lee Kiefer and two-time Olympic bronze medalist Gerek Meinhardt. All three wear Meta’s new Meta Quest Pro VR headset and play a prototype fencing game.

With the video, Zuckerberg is once again promoting the headset’s high-quality mixed reality mode: the physical environment is recorded by integrated sensors, reconstructed in color and depth in the headset and enriched with digital elements (opponent and score display). In this way, analogue and digital reality merge.

Premium headset with a premium price

Zuckerberg showed off the headset in a video back in May, in which he also presented a mixed reality demo. Then as now, the device was subsequently pixelated to hide its design.

The reveal is scheduled for October 11th. Since the technical features, the design of the headset and the name of the product have already been leaked, this secrecy seems a bit strange.

It is also somewhat surprising that Zuckerberg showed games in both teasers, although Meta Quest Pro is to be targeted Businesses and professional users – and costs accordingly.

According to Meta, the price will be well over $800. So the premium headset will cost more than twice as much as a Meta Quest 2. It will complement it, not replace it.

Meta Quest Pro: Launch in October

On Instagram, Zuckerberg confirmed in a short message that Meta Quest Pro will be released in October, shortly after the launch:
