At opposite sides of the globe, two top-flight international football events have kicked off over the last week. In semi-vaccinated Europe the month-long Euro 2020 tournament began on Friday June 11th, with 11 countries hosting the competition across Europe. On Sunday June 13th in Brazil (a country which had now lost nearly half a million lives to COVID-19) the 2021 Copa America kicked off, with the final taking place on July 10th2021. While Euro 2020 is taking place in front of reduced capacity crowds of fans in stadiums, the Copa America is being played behind closed doors with entire participating national delegations required to be vaccinated, and delegations limited to 65 members.

How Apple's VR/AR Headset Compares to Current VR

Article | June 17, 2021

The current field of headsets is still full of iteration and innovation, but none of these devices have truly taken hold in the ways major investors, like Facebook, have probably hoped. Augmented reality, a technology that overlays graphics or video over the user's view of real life, has had its successes. The growing trend of Instagram filters and the absurdly popular Pokemon Go are great examples of ways smartphone users have organically adopted AR tech into their lives. Virtual Reality, which requires wearing a full screen, hasn't captured the public as successfully as AR, mostly due to its high entry costs.
