Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday snubbed heads-up display technology, a system Apple is rumored to adopt in a first-generation "Apple Glass" product, as inadequate for augmented reality applications.

Zuckerberg in an interview with The Verge explained that the transition from VR products like Facebook's Oculus series to portable AR setups will be an especially challenging problem for hardware manufacturers to solve.

Specifically, the AR experience will only be "good" when a pair of "normal-looking glasses" can project holograms onto real world scenes, he said. That level of sophistication will require significant computing power and is far beyond the capabilities of existing hardware.

"I don't think we're anywhere near getting all the electronics that you would need to get into a thin frame," Zuckerberg said. "But the hope would be that you can get it into more normal-looking glasses in the first part of this decade or the first half of this decade."

Facebook on Wednesday announced a next-generation untethered VR headset in Oculus Quest 2. The social media giant's VR arm also killed off the PC-connected Rift line of devices.
