Facebook Working To ‘Recreate The Rooms Of Your Childhood’

Facebook is working on a way for you to relive your childhood.

During its F8 developer conference, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg described research underway aimed at using existing photographs to recreate dreamy 3D representations of those rooms you could visit in virtual reality with family and friends.

Zuckerberg:

If you have some photos from your childhood home, we can now use computer vision to fill in the gaps with this pointillism effect and recreate the rooms of your childhood home where you grew up. So you’re going to be able to go into VR with your family and visit and feel like you were right there. It feels like you’re in a dream. It’s wild.
