It is no secret that Apple is interested in augmented reality technology. Apple’s latest iPad Pro actually comes with a built-in LiDAR scanner to help improve on the AR experience. We have also heard rumors that a similar feature could be arriving for 2020’s iPhones, and that Apple is working on an AR headset could be arriving in 2022.
As events around the world are starting to get cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak, companies are starting to find alternative means of delivering news and updates to their customers. The vast majority of it will probably come in the form of an online event, but HTC might have taken the cake.
HTC has been working on VR headsets for a while now, and more recently, the company has taken the wraps off a new conceptual VR headset that they are working on. Dubbed Project Proton, this is unlike any VR headset that we have seen in the market today, where it feels like it resembles goggles more than your typical VR headset.
The last time we saw a Prince of Persia title was back in 2008. This means that it has been 12 years since a new Prince of Persia game was released. The semi-good news is that Ubisoft hasn’t completely abandoned the franchise yet because the company has since announced a new Prince of Persia VR escape room.
Most of us probably think that virtual reality (VR) is used for gaming, but in reality, it can be used for so many other things. One of the things we probably did not anticipate is how VR could be used to allow family members and loved ones say a final goodbye to those who have passed away.
Virtual reality is designed to be an immersive experience, but it still lacks certain features that will make users truly feel like they are immersed in a virtual world. This is where Pico’s latest offering comes in, in the form of the Pico Neo 2 Eye in which this standalone VR headset will incorporate Tobii’s eye tracking technology.
Thanks to the magic of virtual reality (VR) technology, it allows us to be transported into virtual worlds while staying in one place. This is a pretty awesome feeling if you’ve ever taken a VR headset for a spin, and apparently it looks like the concept is now being tested on animals, in particular, the cow.
For many, many years now, gamers have been eagerly anticipating the announcement of Half-Life 3. Unfortunately, that has yet to happen, but it seems that Valve has decided to breathe some new life into the Half-Life franchise by officially announcing Half-Life: Alyx, the latest title to be part of the Half-Life universe.
We have been hearing for a long time now that Apple is working on an augmented reality (AR) headset. When exactly that device will launch is up for debate, although recently we have heard that Apple could be close where it could launch in 2020. This is according to notable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who has in the past proven to be very accurate with his predictions.
A few years ago, Google announced that they would be getting into virtual reality (VR) through a couple of initiatives, one of which is its Daydream VR platform, and the other would be Cardboard, a very affordable VR headset that would make it easier for anyone to get into VR technology.
For a while now, it felt like Google was taking the lead on virtual reality (VR) on mobile with its Daydream platform, where the company attempted to create a unified platform of sorts amidst a bunch of other companies all trying to create their own VR devices. However, it seems that Google’s experiment with Daydream has finally come to an end.
Unlike humans, robots do not come with the ability to think for themselves. This means that what a robot can do is pretty much what its creator has programmed it to do. While this is useful in factories on the assembly line where a robot might only have a few things to do, it becomes less useful when interacting with the real world.
The process of letting someone go from a job is never a pleasant one, especially if that person has been working for you for years, or if you know that they need this job to survive. Unfortunately, layoffs are sometimes necessary for the long-run, but it still does not mean that it makes the process easier.
We’ve all been to museums at some point in our lives, and usually all the main exhibits are off-limits to visitors, where we can see the exhibits from far, but we can’t really get too close or even touch them. It makes a lot of sense, but at the same time, we’re sure that the experience would be a lot better if we could get up close and personal.
