Facebook confirmed that the company is already working on its own operating system for augmented reality (AR) hardware in order to optimize performance, energy efficiency and computational capacity in normal-looking glasses.

On June 2nd, Facebook shared the roadmap of its augmented reality technology in a blog post by the Spark AR Studio work team, who is in charge of developing the software with which AR effects are designed and implemented in Facebook's devices and applications.

However, during a broadcast by the AMA account in the company of Andrew Bosworth, Facebook's vice president of AR/VR, and Mark Zuckerberg, CEO, they shared more details about the future plans.

They commented that virtual reality glasses would be accompanied by thermal glass protection. They will also have a casual size so that they look like normal glasses, despite having abilities similar to that of a computer. On the other hand, the design will be based on microkernel architecture so that the glasses are safe and reliable.
