This week, there's so much Oculus Quest hype (yay!), a new AR platform from Lenovo with their AR headset competing with the HoloLens, really sad to see Nest's APIs are shutting down but maybe AR musical chairs with the Avengers will help you feel better.
This week, we have VR headset announcements from Valve, Oculus and HP, Microsoft's Build conference brings HoloLens, AI, robotics and IoT news... and we've got Google I/O announcements coming next week! So much going on!
This week, we have brain signals successfully generating speech, Anki (the company behind the Cozmo and Vector robots) has had to let its employees go, Superhot VR is coming to arcades and we've got talk of why LiDAR will soon be obsolete.
This week, we have a new virtual reality mask to smell and sense VR, we remember Notre Dame with a range of VR and AR ways you can experience it, Boston Dynamics robots pull a truck and lots more. Quite a few good articles on AR this week in particular!
This week, Snapchat had a pretty neat location based AR dragon in New York for Game of Thrones, Woolworths got its own robot, Oculus messed up and may have left a bunch of easter egg comments in its Quest controllers and Nintendo's Labo VR elephant controller actually is pretty darn genius.
This week, we had a terrifying AR patent from Microsoft increasing the field of view using fans spinning right in front of your eyeballs, we saw a bunch of (less terrifying) AR headset patents from Google and Snapchat launched the start of their location based AR world... it involves pizza.
