If you’ve ever dabbled in Latin poetry, you may have stumbled upon Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Its tales of transformation and reality have fascinated artists for centuries.In a similar theme, a new artwork, La Dispersion du Fils, tells the story of Actaeon — a hunter who’s turned into a stag by the goddess Diana and devoured by his own hounds.Just as Ovid’s original work blurs the lines of reality, this new piece immerses viewers in the metamorphosis thanks to a 360-degree omnistereoscopic VR system and living 3D “tapestries” of moving images, constructed entirely in real time.The work was created by Jean Michel Bruyère, Matthew McGinity, Delphine Varas, Thierry Arredondo and the LFK(s) artist collective.

Sony reportedly battling to keep PlayStation 5 price down

Article | February 13, 2020

Sony is struggling to land on a price for its upcoming PlayStation 5 console, according to a new report by Bloomberg, with component shortages potentially pushing the MSRP beyond that of the PS4. The bill of materials is said to be at around $450 right now, compared to IHS Markit’s estimate of $381 for the PS4, which sold for $399 upon its release in 2013. Unless Sony is willing to sell the PS5 at a loss, a $450 build cost would make the new console significantly more expensive than Sony’s current $399 PS4 Pro, which is often discounted to as low as $299. It was once common for consoles to be sold as loss leaders, but Sony designed the PS4 to be profitable from the start after losing billions on the technically ambitious PS3 at launch.
