#TechNews Facebook Makes A Virtual Reality World

Facebook'sbig plan is to make AR commonplace and the only way to do it is by creating software that transforms an ordinary smartphone into an augmented reality gadget.
A recent push by Facebook to add camera features to its suite of apps will help popularise AR, Mr Zuckerberg said. "We want glasses, or eventually contact lenses, that look and feel normal but that let us overlay all kinds of information and digital objects on top of the real world". "What you saw today was a lot of stuff being thrown up against the wall as well". The company added various new features to its core programs.
"Overtime, I do think this is really going to be a really important technology that changes how we use our phones", Zuckerberg said. Now, it seems like the social media platform wants to make AR accessible to smartphone cameras so that people wouldn't need to necessarily buy a high-tech eyewear. The new platform is known as 'Camera Effect Platform" and it will include two major components, the "AR Studio" and "Frame Studio'. Frame Studio is available globally, while AR Studio is now open for beta applications.
Developers can also use three inputs to trigger their augmented reality effects: Face Tracker, Sensor data, such as the gyroscope and location, and Scripting APIs to pull in data from other apps and respond to user inputs in real time. AR Studio is starting off as a closed beta. All the GIFs created under FacebookCamera can also be added to Facebook Stories.
Create a digital avatar to hang out with friends in a virtual hangout. You can call a friend in the real world with Messenger video calling, invite more friends and even click selfie photos. Facebook is also trying to revive the QR codes.
Another new feature, Chat Extensions, lets multiple people chat with the same business at the same time.
Rajon Rondo persists through hard season
The Jazz had snatched a 97-95 game-one victory in Los Angeles despite losing star center Rudy Gobert in the opening seconds. With having gone through that awfully rebounded game, the Celtics will make big changes with how they go after rebounds.
At Facebook's F8 annual developer conference, Facebook and Snapchat's cold war heated up. Users will be able to chat and gesture with their arms in the VR setting, while they can also draw pictures or watch YouTube videos together.
Facebook Messenger will now have a discovery tab. The company claimed that Workplace is being used by 14,000 businesses.
The F8 2017 is finally here. The free service, however, won't come with administrative tools or the ability to sync with Google Drive or OneDrive; for that the organisation will have to pay. While that is good news, what is not is that the version will be elevated to a paid model.
With Developer Circles, Facebook is targeting developer communities to connect and collaborate. Facebook isn't the only corporation getting in on these new developments, but it's definitely the one investing the most into it. The intra-office communication lets users utilise Facebook tools like News Feed, Groups, Messages, and Events.
Also, at the F8 conference, Facebook boasted about how popular the Workplace is, with more than 13,000 organizations relying on it for their daily operations.
