She is a veteran of Meta’s VR group and led product design and integration of the Meta Quest. 

Kalinoswki spoke recently with Tech@ concerning the variations between VR and AR and the way in her present function she is creating {hardware} that must be smaller, lighter, and related or equally highly effective to the VR headsets she helped develop earlier in her profession.  Kalinoswki additionally explores  how variety – of abilities, of temperaments, of sensibilities, of ethnicity, of gender, and sexuality – is essential for innovation. Lastly, she discusses the function of collaboration and making a secure house for failures that helps navigating the huge house between zero and one.
