Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is creating a new product that will once again push the boundaries of technology, particularly in virtual reality (VR).

In a post on his account, the tech magnate revealed that he recently paid a visit to the Oculus Research lab, one of Facebook’s tech arms where they are developing prototype gloves to improve the overall VR experience.

According to Zuckerberg, they have a dedicated team of scientists and engineers there who are working on finding new ways to map out the human body which will then be integrated to the gloves.

“The goal is to make VR and AR what we all want it to be: glasses small enough to take anywhere, software that lets you experience anything, and technology that lets you interact with the virtual world just like you do with the physical one,” he said.

What’s more amazing is these gloves will bring in fresh features to the VR world like letting you shoot webs like Spider-Man or repulsor beams if you’re more of an Iron Man fan.

On a serious note, they are also developing a function where you can type on a virtual keyboard while using the gloves which can be a great tool for virtual business meetings and other similar stuff.

There’s no launch date or pricing details yet but we’re quite sure that Zuckerberg is just as excited as we are to get our hands on these gloves.

Oculus Rift is already the best VR experience you can buy—and the technology being built in this lab right now makes me want the future to get here a lot sooner,” he said.

Zuckerberg has recently been making a big push towards improving and promoting VR. Last year, he presented a live demonstration of how VR can work on Facebook.
