This week, CES 2019 began! It meant we had a whole lot of HTC Vive news including a new headset on the way and a new Ring doorbell for your door's peephole. We also had an AR fashion show in Iran with invisible models, one smart dude got his Leap Motion AR headset to become portable and so very much more!
This week, we've got flexible PCBs available to order, a mega-sized Echo Dot speaker shaped like an Echo Dot to give your Echo massive sound, researchers revealed a way to turn 2D images into 3D augmented ones, and one developer used Roomba maps to generate maps for the classic shooter Doom!
This week, Snapchat provided an augmented reality replica of Big Ben to replace it during construction, Leap Motion provided a huge amount of new access to their camera and NES in VR became a thing. Hope you all get a chance to tinker with emerging tech over the holidays — have a great holiday season everyone!
This week, we have a parrot sneakily ordering treats via Amazon Echo, Walmart's new robot fry cook named "Flippy", AI-powered "one button Photoshop" for selfies, sad news of ODG's AR patents being sold next year, unbelievably realistic AI-generated human faces from Nvidia and lots more.
This week, Apple finally released the first direct-to-consumer ECG and irregular heart rhythm app on the Apple Watch, Mozilla released a dev preview of a browser for the Magic Leap, Bose's AR glasses have a release date and price... and so much more!
This week, one man tattooed a controller to his arm to use as a real world controller for his Sonic AR game, NVIDIA did some pretty impressive AI scene generation from real world images, Tilt Brush was used to design an ingenious carry-on bag with an expandable set of shelves, and more!
