Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaks on stage during the annual Facebook F8 developers conference in San Jose, California, U.S., April 18, 2017. So it's no surprise that people are extremely excited about Zuckerberg's keynote speech at this year's Facebook F8 developer conference.
Well everyone, now you can have your Facebook masks and make 'em, too. Or if you aren't one of Facebook's almost two billion monthly users, you can create an account or simply sign up with an email address to watch the stream. The new AR tools that Facebook is giving to developers will enable that. When viewed through the camera, the digital objects interacted with the physical objects as if they were in the same dimension - so the balls bounced off the walls and the Skittles settled on the floor.
Augmented reality has been in the air for some time and got its first big hit past year with Pokémon Go, a game in which users use their smartphones to chase digital creatures through the real world. Zuckerberg acknowledged that the company was late adding the camera effects to its apps, but said, "I'm confident that now we're going to push this augment reality platform forward". "We will show what the future holds for developers and businesses alike as we explore new tools, features, and possibilities", said Emeka Afigbo, Facebook's Head of Platform Partnerships for the Middle East and Africa.

Mike Leake outpitched 2016 NL Cy Young Award victor Max Scherzer, Stephen Piscotty homered and had five RBIs, and the St. His start was pushed up a day so he could replace Adam Conley , who pitched the 16th inning and took the loss Thursday.
Facebook just built a virtual reality version of. (Sorry, F8 has nothing to do with "Fate of the Furious.") Zuckerberg will likely talk about artificial intelligence, chatbots and other gee-whiz topics. Snap, of course, would beg to differ: its popular Snapchat Spectacles were one of last year's most popular-and hard to find-gadgets.
There will be a session on Camera Effects Platform, a tool that will allow developers to create and submit frames. "And providing communication to people who don't have that is a way to do it".
Launching today and available for the Oculus Rift and Touch, Facebook has created a place to meet with friends in virtual reality. "A lot more of us are going to work in the arts". Building 8 has been stocking up on experts in consumer electronics, neuroscience, and robotics and computer vision.
There's no denying that Facebook is now one of, if not, the most valuable company in the whole world, but its success only highlights its shortcomings even more. "We all know where we want this to get eventually".
