Tech giant Qualcomm announced a significant partnership with Pico Interactive and ByteDance to create hardware and software tools for global extended reality ecosystems (XR Ecosystem). The announcement was made by Qualcomm President and CEO, Cristiano Amon, at the Mobile World Conference (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain.
Qualcomm had earlier launched the Snapdragon Spaces, a developer platform aimed at furthering the development of XR applications capitalizing on the power of spatial computing and incorporating capabilities for the metaverse. Future Pico Interactive XR products will incorporate the platform as a key feature.
“This is a great opportunity, maybe over a decade, it is going to be. It could be as big as phones, especially as augmented reality glasses become an extension of every smartphone,” said Amon.
The company also introduced the Snapdragon Car-to-Cloud and Auto Connectivity Platform to enhance global connectivity support and foster the development of cloud-based applications.
Moreover, Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Mobile Platform, its latest 5G-ready mobile processing chip, and the Snapdragon 8cx for personal computers.
Last month at Consumer Electronics Show 2022, the company revealed that it’s working on a new chip for lightweight AR smart glasses along with Microsoft’s software ecosystem.
