This week was CES 2018 — lots of new devices and emerging tech news! We've got robots, AR guns that'll be our Nerf guns of the future, a new high resolution HTC Vive headset and a lot of Google Assistant and Alexa integrations!
This week, the Dev Diner site got a (much needed!) makeover, you could help a snake-spotting AI spot snakes better (say that 10 times fast), we've got a new motion-sensing ring to control VR and the IoT, and one group used tiny laser beams to help the visually impaired find their way — a nice start to the year!
This week, Google brought Street View into Google Earth VR, a robot arm is now DJing, Oculus had a patent for a VR headset that'd work on both PC and phone, and the first Magic Leap headset was revealed! What an end to the year! Happy New Year everyone!
This week, Google's Tango project was sadly shut down, as was a set of security robots unintentionally clearing the homeless. We also have tiny robots mimicking the way an insect's brain works, an AI-generated chapter of Harry Potter and the origin of the Mirai botnet.
This week, you can dance with world leaders in AR, Mozilla brought WebXR to iOS with their WebXR Viewer, we're monitoring the underwater chatter of dolphins with machine learning, Fitbit and Jawbone have moved on from their lawsuits, Fitbit's app store is up and lots more!
This week, one man turned his Furby into an Amazon Echo, we have a Google Vision Kit available to help developers add on-device computer vision smarts (with no connection needed) and flame throwing drones!
