      Big Tech seemingly jumping onto every opportunity to initiate a new market. I am very curious with how this will turn out: I really do not feel like Facebook has the trust from consumers to get in this realm.

      Facebook also detailed a project at last year’s Oculus Connect conference it calls Live Maps, which the company says will be integral to help people use AR glasses in the real world by helping blend the virtual and real. That way, AR glasses can “download the most recent data from the 3D map, and then only have to detect changes — like new street names or the appearance of a new parking garage, and update the 3D map with those changes.”

      I am sure everyone will feel very comfortable knowing Facebook will now be able to witness our realities from a first-person perspective lol. Time shall tell.
