What are the biggest insights and observations in AR and adjacent sectors this week? Welcome to Reality Bytes, featuring lightning-round commentary from AR Insider partner M7 Innovations. Founder Matt Maher lends his insights from the trenches of AR experience creation.
We continue the narrative this week with Maher’s look at Snapchat’s Bitmoji updates, Peleton’s crack at original music, and Nuro’s AV greenlight. See the quick summary below, followed by embedded video. And stay tuned each week for more musings from Maher.
🚗 Nuro is the first autonomous delivery startup to get clearance by the California DMV to drive on public roads. We discuss the implications.
🧙♂️ Snapchat files a patent to allow customization of your Bitmoji’s clothing using 3rd party retailers. The ‘Virtual Fashion Department’ is now a thing.
🚴♂️ Peloton is taking another big bet, creating original music. Will the exclusivity be enough of a draw, or is this Tidal 2.0?
