Augmented reality and virtual reality
Feb 01, 12:03 AM EST Newsletter Signup BusinessTechnologyWorldNationalMedia & CultureOpinionSportsLuxury Business By Ashraf Eassa 01/31/19 AT 11:56 PM Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been talking up augmented reality (AR) for a while. More than that, the company has done a significant amount of hardware and software work to optimize some of its more recent iPhone and iPad devices for augmented reality use cases.Apple CEO Tim Cook was quoted in 2017 as saying that AR is poised to "change everything."For instance, Apple released the second version of a software development kit called ARKit 2.0 back in June and is likely to launch a third-generation version at its Worldwide Developers Conference later this year. ARKit allows developers to more easily build AR applications for Apple's iPhones and iPads. An Android 3D app could utilize its GPS and location hardware to track users using augmented reality. The facial recognition sensory can visually display … [Read more...] about Apple Is Set To Supercharge Its Augmented Reality Ambitions For iPhones, iPads
Shedding Your Identity in the Digital AgeStories From the HuntEvan's Daily Costume ChangeMedia, From TV to Mags to Blogs, Followed the HuntSocial Networking Sites at Center of Coast-to-Coast Coordinated Search Wired Tests Writer With a Series of Bold Challenges1 I'm driving East out of San Francisco on I-80, fleeing my life under the cover of dusk. Having come to the interstate by a circuitous route, full of quick turns and double backs, I'm reasonably sure that no one is following me. I keep checking the rearview mirror anyway. From this point on, there's no such thing as sure. Being too sure will get me caught. I had intended to flee in broad daylight, but when you are going on the lam, there are a surprising number of last-minute errands to run. This morning, I picked up a set of professionally designed business cards for my fake company under my fake name, James Donald Gatz. I drove to a Best Buy, where I bought two prepaid cell phones with cash and then put a USB cord on my credit … [Read more...] about Writer Evan Ratliff Tried to Vanish: Here’s What Happened
The story of once-hyped augmented reality (AR) startup Blippar has come to an end. The London-based company announced yesterday that it had started insolvency procedures, a process that means all employees will be let go and, likely, services terminated. Back in September, Blippar raised $37 million as it sought more runway to reach profitability by focusing on the B2B sphere. But it transpires that Blippar also went in search of “an additional small amount of funding” which was blocked by one of its shareholders. “Regrettably, one shareholder voted against the additional funding, effectively blocking the investment even if they were not asked to participate in any further financing of the business, and despite our extensive efforts to reach a successful resolution.” So how did Blippar, an early trailblazer for the advancement of AR in the consumer realm, end up here? Here’s a quick look at some of the turns the company has taken since its inception. … [Read more...] about The rise and fall of augmented reality ‘unicorn’ Blippar
Tracking steps, measuring heart rate, counting calories, monitoring sleep: wearables have become part of everyday life for a surprisingly large portion of the UK. According to researcher YouGov, nearly one in five of us own a wearable, and one in 10 actively use them. So could the interest in keeping fit that wearables have inspired, and the data they collect, be something the NHS can use to its advantage?Other private healthcare providers around the world have started making use of consumer wearables. In the US, for example, insurer Aetna has subsidised the cost of Apple Watches for customers to "improve healthy outcomes", while in the UK private health insurer Vitality subsidises them for people undertaking a certain amount of exercise. Other health and wellness companies offer reward points or even cash to members who hit certain healthy milestones, such as regular step counts or gym visits.The idea behind such schemes is that prevention is better than cure: it might cost a few … [Read more...] about Smart watches, fitness trackers and the NHS: Are wearables just what the doctor ordered?
