During a town hall hosted at Facebook's HQ in Menlo Park, California, Zuckerberg said: "What I think is going to be really cool is as the form factor keeps on getting smaller and smaller, [it] stops being big goggles or headset. But instead it just looks like normal glasses or sunglasses where you can use it without being tied to a computer".

Zuckerberg sees a world in the not-too-distant future where people won't need to use their phones to show photos to their friends, he added: "In the future you'll be able to snap your fingers and instantiate a photo album or a big photo, make it whatever size you want, and people will be able to see it through their glasses". This won't happen in the short term, but that's something the Facebook founder is very aware of, where he said: "It's going to take five, seven, 10, I don't know, maybe 12 years to build that out and have that be something that really works and is cheap enough for everyone in the world to use".
