Facebook launches VR wristbands

Facebook has unveiled a VR (virtual reality) wristband that detects motor-nerve signals to control device movements. Users will be able to ‘click’ and use gestures to navigate around a device.

Facebook says they will adapt to users behaviours, learning to predict their likes, dislikes and other interests, in real time. Some privacy campaigners are concerned at the personal data which will be collected.

By the way, nearly 20% of Facebook’s worldwide workforce are employed in its Reality Labs division, so they obviously feel there is money to be made.
