Meta released a new VR headset next year

In the world of virtual reality, there's a new player on the horizon. 

Meta, a startup that's been working on augmented reality headsets, is now turning its attention to VR. 

The company announced today that it's working on a new VR headset that it plans to release next year.

The headset, which is still in development, is said to be "lightweight, comfortable, and compatible with a wide range of prescription glasses." 

It will also offer a "large field of view," according to Meta. The company is already taking pre-orders for the headset, which is priced at $949.

The company's first product was an AR headset that it released in 2014. 

Since then, the company has been working on an updated version of the headset, as well as a new AR platform called Meta 2.0.

The new VR headset is just the latest example of Meta's commitment to VR. 

In October, the company announced that it had raised $50 million in funding to help it develop its VR and AR products.
