Canon has begun granting early access to Kokomo, an 'immersive calling' platform for VR headsets that will enable users to virtually chat with others. To pull this off, Kokomo's AI will generate an image of the user's face to replace the part blocked by the goggles.

OK, it sounds bonkers, but that's what Canon is saying and they're inviting people in the USA and Canada to sign up. The system uses the Meta Quest 2 VR headset (formerly known as the Oculus Quest 2 until it joined the Metaverse).
