Making Immersive Virtual Reality Possible in Mobile

April 1, 2016

Immersion enhances everyday experiences, making them more realistic, engaging, and satisfying. Virtual reality (VR) will provide the ultimate level of immersion, creating a sense of physical presence in real or imagined worlds. VR will bring a new paradigm for how we can interact with the world, offering unprecedented experiences and unlimited possibilities that will enhance our lives in many ways.This promise of VR has excited us for decades, but it is happening now due to the alignment of ecosystem drivers and technology advancements. In fact, it is mobile technologies that are accelerating VR adoption. To stimulate our human senses with realistic feedback, truly immersive VR places extreme requirements on several dimensions of the three pillars of immersion1 visual quality, sound quality, and intuitive interactions. Adding to the complexity, mobile VR requires full immersion at low power and thermals so that the headset is sleek, lightweight, and stylish while remaining cool.

The new chair of the FTC and antitrust 2.0

Article | June 22, 2021

The appointment of Lina Khan on June 15th to chair of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is poised to be a transformational one in the history of the world wide web. Khan came to prominence with an article in the Yale Law Journal, Amazon’s Antitrust Paradox, which identified the paradox of hegemonic tech service providers which bypass the US’ strict competition laws by offering lower prices to the end consumer. Under US antitrust law, the driving indicator of market monopolies are higher prices for the consumer – under this strict definition, none of the tech majors which dominate the digital economy are monopolistic. Indeed, some such as Alphabet and Facebook do not even directly charge the end user for their services. So, while both Google and Facebook dominate the global digital ad market, making an antitrust case against them under the current 20thcentury era regulatory framework is nigh on impossible. However, the absence of meaningful competitive challengers to these two incumbents in search and social advertising over the previous 15 years, despite the lucrative high margin business opportunities, implies that the competitive market is not performing according to classical economic theory. Khan has built a subsequent career on trying to square this circle, and now the Biden Administration has empowered her as the key instigator of the sweeping regulatory update required for a digital-first century.

Sony's PlayStation VR is the best-selling VR headset in the world with over 5 million shipments since its launch in October 2016. That only represents a sliver of Sony's installed base of 110 million PS4s, but that foothold has encouraged developers to produce more stand-alone VR games and add-on experiences for PS4 games.

Why Shares of AMC Entertainment Are Surging Today

Article | April 28, 2020

It was just two weeks ago that it looked as if the COVID-19 pandemic would push AMC into bankruptcy, as forced theater closures shut off revenue to the world's biggest cinema operator. The company also slashed its dividend, and executives all took pay cuts to help conserve cash. Investors should still be wary, even if AMC is able to open many of its theaters sooner than the mid-June date it had been eyeing.
