This week, we've got a way of making AR apps that work on both ARKit and ARCore in the latest version of Unreal Engine, an unexpected entrant into the VR space — Metamucil, Arduino-powered light up stairs, and one Japanese engineer who made his own 28-foot high Gundam robot. Just amazing.
This week, Leap Motion revealed their very own AR platform with hand tracking (so cool!), the Arduino Yún is back with a sequel, Samsung has an interesting wider watchface concept, Apple poached Google's head of AI and more! It was a huge week!
This week, Amazon released a new reference guide for Alexa-powered smart lamps, France announced it wants to be an AI innovation hub, we have a look at making an attempt at a cake baking robot and Apple has a patent for VR within self driving vehicles that looks a bit like a carnival ride.
This week, Uber's autonomous vehicles were banned from Arizona, we've got a smartwatch focused on showing you inspirational quotes, a smaller VR treadmill coming soon and a pretty cool NVIDIA demo driving a car remotely in VR!
This week, eBay released an AR way of working out what box you should ship that package in, we have a new Raspberry Pi, Turkish humanoid robots are ready to take hospitality by storm and the Magic Leap SDK was announced hinting at a range of cool features their headset might have!
This week, we have a pair of smart sneakers that orders pizza, a robot that solves a Rubik's cube in 380ms and a pair of audio-focused AR smartglasses coming from Bose. I think it might also be the first time AR news has outnumbered VR news in the newsletter!
