Meta Quest 3: the new Meta headset twice as powerful

Still in direct competition with Apple, Meta intimidates the market by unveiling its mixed reality headset Meta Quest 3. This is the very first headset to be made available to the general public, with augmented reality functions incorporating full-colour, high-fidelity images.

A reminder of mixed reality

Au croisement de la réalité augmentée et virtuelle se trouve la réalité mixte, une technologie avancée offrant une grande précision et un large éventail de fonctionnalités aux utilisateurs. Grâce à ses capacités de pointe, la réalité mixte est en mesure de reconnaître et de prendre en compte l’environnement réel de l’utilisateur, de calculer avec précision et en temps réel une position, tout en permettant des interactions physiques avec des éléments en 3D à l’aide de gestes simples. C’est pour ces raisons que Meta a décidé d’intégrer la réalité mixte à son casque Meta Quest 3 et ainsi d’offrir une expérience immersive plus que réussie aux utilisateurs.

The diversity of the Meta Quest 3 helmet

The headset boasts a host of new features designed to give users the ultimate immersive experience.

Better performance with Pancake lenses

With a view to reducing the size of the helmet and making it more manageable for users, the Quest 3 features Pancake lenses in the same way as the Quest Pro. These lenses reduce the size of the helmet by 40% compared to the Quest 2 without impacting on the resolution screens, apart from the fact that they are much more powerful than other helmets.

The new Touch Plus controllers

The headset's controllers have also been redesigned and improved, with new Touch Plus controllers located halfway between those of the Quest 2 and Quest Pro. Meta has decided to remove the tracking rings, which were previously located around the controllers but are now integrated into the helmet thanks to the tracking sensors. The Quest 3 headset is still compatible with the Touch Pro controllers, but you'll simply have to buy the two products separately.

Integrated sensors

The Meta Quest 3 headset has three sensors visible on the front, one of which, called the depth sensor, enables immersive augmented reality experiences of better quality than the Quest Pro. Two other sensors, located on the lower corners, are dedicated to tracking, but the headset has no sensors for tracking eyes or facial expressions.

Price list

The first price in France for the Meta Quest 3 is €569.99 for the 128GB version. A second version with more storage space will be unveiled shortly. In relation to the headset Apple Reality ProThe price Meta is offering is far more attractive to the general public. The brand's lower-end models, meanwhile, will see a price cut, notably the Quest 2, which will be offered at €349.99 for the 128GB version.

The regulations

Tout comme le Quest 2, le nouveau casque de Meta est déconseillé au moins de 13 ans et interdit pour tout autre usage illégal ou mettant en péril la vie d’autrui.
