Well, Facebook’s CEO talked about other big topics in his latest interview with The Verge, but it’s the VR section that we’re most interested in.

“Videos are starting to be one of, if not the main, ways that people interact and consume content online. But that’s not the end of the line — there’s always more, and our [lived] experience isn’t video. It’s not a small 2D frame, it’s this 3D world,” said Zuckerberg. “You want to be able to capture that, and you want to be able to map it out digitally, whether that’s in a game where you’re creating the landscape, or in a video where you’re capturing it. I think this is just the next logical extension in how we express and experience the world. I think you’ll do that in VR with a headset, and you’ll do that in interfaces like Facebook and Messenger and WhatsApp, in the way that we have 360-degree videos in News Feed today.” But not just headsets. “You’ll just have glasses, or eventually contact lenses. [You’ll be able to] look around and see different things and interact with [by] using your hands and reaching out and grabbing stuff. That, I think, is the next logical step for how we’ll interact with this.”
