If TikTok does this, Mark Zuckerberg should win his bet

News hardware If TikTok does this, Mark Zuckerberg should win his bet

By buying Pico in August 2021 for just over 1 billion euros, ByteDance, the parent company behind the famous social network TikTok, has set foot in a universe hitherto outrageously dominated by Meta (Facebook) and this is not necessarily a bad thing for Mark Zuckerberg and his teams.

We understood it well, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook and president of the Meta group, has a very precise idea of ​​what he wants for our future.

Faced, like all of us, with isolation and shutdown during the Covid period, the one who invested in VR in 2014 by buying the company Oculus for 2 small billion dollarsintends to develop, and impose, his concept of Metaverse against all odds, and regardless that he has lost more than half of his fortune in less than a year, the boss of Facebook-Meta is a man of conviction and he will go to the end of his idea.

The Metaverse, for those who have spent the last 3 years in hibernation, is this virtual world of the not so distant future where we can all evolve, walk around, go to work, attend meetings, watch movies with friends or even meeting people, without ever leaving home, simply with a VR headset on your head.

Creepy for some, brilliant for others, the concept inevitably divides, but seems to appeal to large industrialists and large companies who see it as a way of maintaining a certain productivity in the event of a new pandemic or disaster.

Suddenly, everyone is starting to take an interest in VR/AR (Virtual/Augmented Reality) because we feel that there are opportunities to be seized. This is particularly the case with Apple, which should very soon (finally!) lift the veil on its first device (helmet? glasses?), even if it should initially be aimed at professionals , or to very wealthy people.

Relatively alone in the market for autonomous, lightweight, practical, affordable, etc. headsets. Meta, with its Meta Quest 2 is about to launch very soon a Meta Quest Pro which is also the subject of all the speculation. But in the meantime, a new challenger is knocking on the door…

If TikTok does this, Mark Zuckerberg should win his bet

By buying the company Pico last year, ByteDance got its hands on a well-known virtual reality specialist in Asia, but very little here.

The Pico 4, which succeeds the Neo 3 Link, is a frontal attack on the Meta Quest 2 with an identical concept, very similar technical specifications and a very slightly lower price.

Features of the Pico 4 VR headset :

  • Dual 2160 x 2160 LCD screen per eye
  • 90 Hz refresh rate
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 chip
  • 128 or 256 GB of storage
  • Battery: 5300 maH (approximately 3 hours of autonomy)
  • Weight: 295 grams (586 grams with strap)
  • Price: 429 euros (128 GB) or 499 (256 GB)
  • Availability: October 18

Like the Meta Quest 2, the Pico 4 is a standalone headset, meaning it can work without a PC. However, it will be possible to connect it to a computer to benefit from more power in certain games.

In terms of catalog, the store already contains 165 games and Pico intends to develop its own Metaverse with Pico Worldsa world where you can evolve thanks to your avatar, which will have many legs!
