  • Meta has introduced a new way to digitally map a room, called SceneScript.
  • SceneScript is able to automatically identify objects and room features like walls, couches, and tables with the help of AI.
  • The resulting data can be used by LLMs to answer questions about the room.

Meta has debuted a new method for scanning a room called SceneScript. This new way of room scanning could make the process faster and easier on Quest headsets, and it could have other useful implications as well.

Before you use a VR headset, it’s recommended that you scan the room so that boundaries can be set up. This way you don’t have to worry about bumping into various objects as your vision is obscured. Room scanning is also used for AR to accurately anchor and align 3D content to the indoor space you’re in. However, the current way room scanning is done can be a bit complex and user-unfriendly.
