Facebook video call tablet is reportedly in the works

Acquiring Oculus back in 2014 is not where Facebook’s hardware ventures end. According to a report from Bloomberg , Facebook is working on a video calling device geared towards home use. It features a large laptop-sized display, a wide angle camera, microphones, speakers, all to be powered by artificial intelligence.

Facebook was also reportedly planning to build its own core operating system for the device, but instead might opt to use Android. The company is also testing a smart camera feature that allows the device to automatically scan for people in range and lock on to them. Facebook says that the device would make the participants of a call feel like they’re in the same room. The device hails from Building 8, the company’s experimental development lab, and could possibly be announced at the next F8 developer conference.
