According to IDC's latest forecast data, the total global AR/VR investment scale in 2021 is close to US$14.67 billion, and is expected to increase to US$74.73 billion in 2026, with a five-year compound growth rate (CAGR) of 38.5%. Among them, the five-year CAGR of the Chinese market is expected to reach 43.8%, ranking first in the world in terms of growth rate. On August 29 last year, ByteDance acquired the VR brand Pico, which caused a huge sensation in the industry. Now the first anniversary of Pico's "change of ownership" is approaching, and the Pico 4 series (tentatively), as the first new product after the acquisition by Byte, has also been frequently exposed in the near future. The author will take you to uncover its "mystery" layer by layer through the sorting and analysis of the Pico 4 series of information. The latest revelation about the Pico 4 series was on August 25, when @phoenixwangtech posted a heavy revelation on Weibo, and it was suspected that the photos of Pico’s sports accessories advertising scene were exposed. From the photos, we can see something similar to a sports ring. Based on this, we can speculate that Pico is likely to launch suitable external sports accessories at the same time at the new product launch. Functions such as fitness motion capture and spatial positioning also indicate that Pico may have a layout in the field of VR sports and fitness. Early and convincing information about the Pico 4 series comes from Pico's US FCC registration documents in late July. According to foreign media reports, the new Pico products will be divided into two versions: Pico 4 and Pico 4 Pro. Judging from the parameter configuration and design line draft of the Pico 4 series exposed in August, the Pico 4 series adopts a new design in terms of appearance and wearing method. The Pico 4 series is obviously ahead of the Quest 2 in parameter configuration, and the Pico 4 series The series is equipped with many innovative functions, such as Pancake optical scheme, color perspective (See-Through), stepless adjustment of interpupillary distance, etc. It is worth noting that, compared to the normal version, the Pro version will support facial recognition and eye tracking. The Pancake ultra-short-focus optical solution used in the Pico 4 series not only makes the host lighter, thinner and more compact, effectively reducing the "weight-bearing" of the device to the user, but also whether we are doing various fitness projects, games or watching movies, it All of them can bring us an immersive experience that we cannot experience in 2D flat applications or web pages, which is bound to accelerate the speed and breadth of the popularization of VR devices. In addition, the front end adopts a swimming goggle-like design, which can better fit the face, making it difficult for users to fall off when exercising. And the burden on the neck, making the user more comfortable to wear. In fact, at the moment when home sports and fitness are hot, the "VR sports and fitness scene" can be said to be in the bonus period. And Pico, relying on bytes, has huge market opportunities in content ecological construction, and VR sports fitness may also become a new trend. According to the hot download list of the Pico app store, sports games with indirect fitness effects are the most popular apps. In the paid app rankings, the top two are "Oh Shape" and "All-in-One Sports VR". The former is an app where users can dance to the rhythm of music, while the latter is a collection of basketball, badminton, Table tennis and many other sports. For users who want to exercise at home, Pico's VR exercise fitness is very worth looking forward to and trying. And if a friend also has a Pico, we can also "meet friends with a ball" online, so "home fitness" has become another major driving force for our shopping.
