    If you're not able to watch in Venues, you can watch on Facebook Live.

    (I believe the official name is Facebook Connect 2020, or just Facebook Connect, rather than 'Connect 7'.)

    You can just watch it on YouTube, or maybe not.

    This is a good turnout in Venues. Easily 100 other people sitting around me.

    My internet at work is too slow for Venues, so just watching on the web.

    Project Aria is announced, for Augmented Reality breakthroughs. Seems like an open-source project aimed to develop the Smart Glasses. To be released in 2021!

    10% lighter? I was hoping for more, the Quest was too heavy.

    Thanking the dev community...
    maybe high some more staff for the dev forum? Most threads go unanswered and the only staff member there hasn't even logged in for 3 weeks.

    Bringing AR to Portal and FB Messenger... finally Facebook is going after Snapchat. Another great move.

    Preorders are up, already bought one.

    The battery strap isn't available yet, but the elite strap is.

    I've ordered the 256GB version and the carry case. Price was a bit higher than expected ($629 CAD), so that's maybe $450 or $460 USD?

    Obvious. I think most people knew this was coming. But what it ultimately means is all the prototype tech we've seen will hopefully make it into Quest 3/4/5 etc.

    Quest comes with optional Halo strap. Nice!
