During Meta’s Connect conference on Tuesday, Meta's CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that the avatars in the company’s Horizon VR app will be getting legs soon.

To demonstrate this groundbreaking technical achievement, Zuckerberg’s digital avatar lifted each leg in the air, then did a jump, while Aigerim Shorman’s avatar kicked into the air.

However, this may only be a preview, as an unnamed Meta spokesperson said that the “the segment featured animations created from motion capture,” meant to “enable this preview of what’s to come.”

The Verge believes that this was not actually a demo of what Horizon’s legs will look like, but rather "an artist’s interpretation of what Horizon’s legs may end up looking like."
