California: Facebook's next big project in the hardware sector is set to be augmented reality glasses. Such a hardware has been in-the-making for many tech giants including Google which eventually failed at making it a commercial success.

Facebook's head of augmented reality Ficus Kirkpatrick confirmed this at TechCrunch's AR/VR event. He said that the company is looking forward to making the AR glasses a reality.

It was in 2017 when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had announced that the company wanted to build these glasses, however, he admitted that Facebook didn't have the right science or technology to build it. It seems the company has sped up its way in terms of technology.
