2016 Qualcomm Venture Capital's Sequoia Capital Frontier Technology Entrepreneurship Competition decided on September 22th in Hangzhou for the top three—Meike Technology (Beijing) Co., Ltd., Beijing Fantastic Technology Co., Ltd. and Intmann (Beijing) Technology Co., Ltd., where Metco won 500,000 US dollars, fantasy won 300,000 U.S. dollars in seed investment, and Metco won the 2016 DEMO GOD Grand Prize in the Innovate China Finals.
With the continuous development of cutting-edge technology, computer vision, machine learning, biometrics, speech recognition and other technologies have been extended to new platforms such as drones, robots, AR/VR, and space. Qualcomm, as a leader in innovative technologies, has its own products and layout in these new areas, hoping to meet the technology needs of start-up companies.
For the future development of mobile VR headlines, it will become lighter, thinner, and more fashionable. The current heavyweight headlines will abandon the complex shells step by step, and may even hope to become invisible. Of course, from a technical point of view, the challenges of AR/VR technology still have three major aspects: sight, hearing, and interaction. How to solve the discomfort of vertigo through technology, improve the resolution of the head, and solve the screen window effect become a very important direction. The 500 PPI that cannot be recognized by the human eye in a mobile phone terminal needs to be 2000 PPI to get the same effect when it is put into a VR device. At present, the display of helmets of mainstream brands is only around 500 PPI. This problem also involves the display screen technology, technology, mass production yield and other challenges.
The outbreak of any industry requires the popularization of technology and the popularization of products. Looking back at the popularity of large-screen smart phones is also the time when it can achieve thousands of machines. Only when all-in-one machines are populated, can they see the outbreak in the VR field. It is most important for the users to use and use these devices. The outbreak of VR headline requires the simultaneous enhancement of display technology, processing technology, interactive technology, and content. At present, Qualcomm's flagship processor, the Snapdragon 820, can meet the existing needs. We believe that Moore’s Law requires you to have innovation and always have the ability to innovate. Make the parts perform well and at low cost.
