The billionaire posted a video on Facebook which shows him playing with animated creatures while wearing a new headset.
Zuckerberg posted the video and wrote: "First look at mixed reality on our next headset codenamed Project Cambria.
"This demo was created using Presence Platform, which we built to help developers build mixed reality experiences that blend physical and virtual worlds.
"The demo, called "The World Beyond," will be available on App Lab soon.
"It's even better with full color passthrough and the other advanced technologies we're adding to Project Cambria. More details soon."

One person wrote: "Am I like the only person who thinks this might be bad for humanity.
"Haven't smartphones and social media done enough damage already.
"Now they want to completely take people out of reality. I can't see how that would be good for one's mental health."
Others questioned whether Facebook and Meta Platforms had their priorities straight.
One person said: "Not enough people want this. First person shooters built off of real world maps exist. Sitting down and not having a heavy thing on one's head is just the default preference of most."
Another added: "You mean like a pokemon game but in 3D? Mixed reality in 3D isn't easy with those big bulky goggles…you can't see where you're going. Accident waiting to happen."
