Big Thought Energy - DTNS 4360

ByteDance, the parent company of TikTok, developed a new virtual reality headset called the Pico 4. Can it compete with the incumbent players? A company called Seoul Robotics is developing an autonomous vehicle system that doesn’t put sensors in cars, but inside towers along roads and then broadcasts telemetry data to the car. Is it a viable alternative to the current approach? And we discuss the thesis of the Verge’s Russell Brandom from his article “How platforms turn boring.”

Starring Tom Merritt, Sarah Lane, Justin Robert Young, Roger Chang, Joe.
