Meta Shifts Focus to Smart Glasses, Apple Develops Cheaper Vision Headset, and Major AI Innovations Unveiled

This strategic move aligns with current trends: VR is waning, AI is surging, and Meta’s smart glasses have emerged as a standout AI-driven gadget. Concurrently, reports from The Information indicate that Apple is focusing on developing a more affordable Vision headset instead of a direct successor to the Vision Pro. These developments suggest significant changes are underway in the VR and AR landscape.


In this context, Alex Heath joins Nilay and me to discuss the current state of AR and VR in Silicon Valley. With David taking a break, we explore the implications of these shifts. But our conversation doesn't end there. We also delve into other exciting topics: a new universal remote with a large screen designed for a niche market, Framework’s latest laptop featuring an intriguing processor, and the release of Qualcomm’s new laptop processors to reviewers and the public. As our team works on benchmarking these processors, we analyze their potential impact on the broader industry.


Following these major discussions, we turn our attention to AI, another area of significant news this week. Ilya Sutskever, OpenAI’s former chief scientist, has launched a new AI company. Although he lacks a detailed business plan, he has ambitious visions for AI's future. Additionally, Perplexity is taking bold steps to build a competitive AI search engine, intensifying the tension between creators and AI companies that seek both their patronage and their data for training purposes.


Lastly, we wrap up with a lightning round that unexpectedly ventures into the realm of fashion.
