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

Article | March 10, 2020

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.

Apple's AR & VR headset may not need external input for orientation & motion detection

Article | February 11, 2020

Apple is continuing to investigate headsets like its "AR Glasses," as part of its exploration of Augmented and Virtual Reality systems. One such headset in future may utilize sensors that can detect angular rotation, such as that experienced when the device is placed on a user's head or removed.

Streaming services, led by subscription video on demand (SVOD) hegemon Netflix, still operate in the mindset of having a digital native consumer base. For these streaming incumbents, the success of SVOD still rests upon their ability to appeal to younger consumer bases who have a) grown up in a digital environment, and b) are by definition young and eager for new and constantly evolving consumer experiences. Add to this the post-second world war presumption that popular entertainment should always be youth-centric focused, and streaming is still de-facto a youth-orientated proposition.

How blockchain is transforming online gaming for players

Article | June 18, 2020

For online gamers, in-game purchases made to buy special swords, guns, or other add-ons to play their adventure, warfare, and other games are one-time, non-transferable investments that lock them into their pretend worlds. That's something companies like Polyient Games want to change by registering those purchases using blockchain and transforming the previously one-way transactions into liquid assets which are transferable for cash.
