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!
This week, Google patented a pair of VR shoes, they also found a workaround to enable their assistant through Siri and Jimmy Fallon had a duet with Sophia (and we met Little Sophia, coming soon to a home near you!).
This week, Tim Cook went onto HBO and talked about AR, we had a new VR short film from the creators of "Invasion!" and "Asteroids!", and we had cucumbers... and more. It was a fun week.
