Bytedance, TikTok’s parent firm, is looking at virtual reality (VR) investment opportunities. According to a source, the corporation intends to invest “hundreds of millions of dollars” in VR content development.
The protocol stated that it was actively hiring, including 40 job openings for Pico, a Chinese VR headset manufacturer bought by Bytedance last year.
Positions such as head of VR game strategy, game operation manager, optical engineer, and systems design electric engineer are typically advertised in California and Washington.
According to the source, the company’s decision to list the head of consumer sales in Pico is an indication that it wants to create a foothold in the United States.
Bytedance, according to The Verge, will help Pico compete with conventional headsets like Meta and PlayStation.
Pico Neo 3 Link, Pico’s premium all-in-one headset, debuted in Europe in May for $472. The specifications were found to be close to those of Meta Quest 2, a $399 game.
Both phones contained 256GB of storage, and a Snapdragon XR2 processor, with a resolution of 1832 x 1920 per eye. Instead of a USB-C port, the Neo 3 Link included an extra strap and a DisplayPort connector.
