The Meta Quest 3 will get a much-needed body-tracking update soon

If you’ve ever found yourself pulled out of a VR experience because your virtual arms and upper body don’t match up well with your real body, Meta has some good news: the Meta Quest 3 will soon have proper body tracking thanks to an incoming update.

Currently, a lot of guesswork goes into VR avatars. Unless you’re wearing some kind of tracking suit, the headset has to guess where your arms and body should be based on your head and hand movements, as well as any height data you provide. Sometimes it’s okay, but generally this system is a little off, and rather than helping with immersion it can serve as a constant reminder that the virtual world is just that.
