Besides Facebook, Apple, Google, Amazon, and Baidu have already embarked towards making their own hardware technologies. This month, Facebook appointed Shahriar Rabii as Silicon's head and vice president. Prior to joining this, Rabii was responsible for developing the Visual Core chip that is used in Google'sPixel smartphones.
At Facebook, Rabii will work under Andrew Bosworth, the social network's head of virtual and augmented reality, according to people with information on the situation.
Rabii was previously working as Senior Director of Engineering at Google.
