Fadell, on the other hand, is pessimistic about the meta-universe.
Apple Inc. is developing in-car technology and augmented reality glasses, with one of these areas potentially becoming the company’s next big thing.
Former Apple Inc. executive Tony Fadell is skeptical that one of these developments will be the company’s next breakthrough, but he believes it will try to release significant hardware.
The concept of a meta-universe is divisive.
One area that Fadell does not believe is promising is the meta-universe, a concept promoted by Facebook Inc. CEO Mark Zuckerberg. In a virtual reality world, people would be able to work, play, and participate in sports, according to Mark Zuckerberg.
“In 1988, I discovered the metaworld while working on virtual reality glasses. I’m still undecided about it. I believe it will make a significant difference in the corporate and industrial sectors, but how do you get consumers to want to be in that emotional state all of the time? It’s a challenging situation.” This was emphasized by Fadell, who is now a principal at Future Shape LLC.
Fadell co-founded and led Nest Labs, a smart thermostat company acquired by Google in 2014. He believes that technology developers should be held to a higher standard, despite his knowledge of smart devices.
“You must take a close look at what you’re attempting to accomplish; the less you do, the better. Microwaves and clocks have been tried. They must concentrate and declare that this is what really matters “Fadell explained.
