Hugo Barra to Head Facebook's VR Efforts

  • By Developer.com Staff

Facebook has announced that well-known executive Hugo Barra will be heading up its virtual reality (VR) business, including Oculus. Barra was most recently a vice president at Xiaomi, and before that, he was a vice president at Google with oversight of the Android platform. He will be replacing former Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe, who is now leading Oculus's PC VR team.

"It’s been a dream of mine to work in virtual reality even back when AR/VR were just figments of science fiction," said Barra. "Now we’re taking selfies in virtual worlds :) I learned from Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun that there’s no greater calling in our industry than taking breakthrough tech and making it available to the greatest number of people."
