Augmented Reality has taken its steps forward in almost every field of technology and has given the outstanding final products. Now, it is stepping in the field of 3D printing, coming up with a newly invented CNC machine or Computer Numerical Control that prototypes easily compared to 3D printers. This machine does much more than just printing drones, human organs, or medications. This machine comes up in the credits of Shaper who is based in San Francisco. For bringing this machine into an experience, Shaper team had to work hard and far efficiently putting technologies into practice that were far from the practical experience of a majority of mechanical engineers. The CNC machine initially leverages laptop or computer and uses augmented reality in discovering the curve shape. CEO of Shaper, Joe Hebenstreit explains the ways of constructing anything with the help of CNC machine. He further explains that you can draw different shapes on the tool/machine itself without accessing a laptop or a computer. You can carve any product into a new construction with the help of this machine. Unlike a 3D printer that will go on printing until it arrives at making an item, a CNC machine will slice […]
The Olympic Games in Rio were not only the meeting point for the most talented sportsmen in the world, but also the place where a competition between the newest technologies takes place. There is nearly no athlete who did not use a wearable device during the preparation training for the Games and you can see a lot of the sportspeople wearing a wearable fitness device even in the Olympic village. Therefore, you could also call it “the Olympics of wearable devices”. From a smartwatch to an intelligent training shirt – all those technologies are used by the athletes. But what exactly is the reason for that?
Virtual Reality has spread its essence in almost every sector of life right from playing video games to watching videos and now it has taken one more step ahead and has left us spellbound.

Smart Eyewear Taxonomy. In a first article “Smart Glasses? It’s all about perspective.” we proposed a taxonomy to segment the emerging market of smart eyewear. In this sequel we will contemplate somewhat deeper on the opportunities for smart eyewear in an enterprise context. Before opening the debate, we recommend you to quickly glance back at the taxonomy table profiling the five segments of the smart eyewear market. Guiding framework for smart eyewear in enterprise. To structure the discussion on the opportunities of smart glasses in the enterprise world, we searched for a guiding framework based on a neutral observation. The graph below reflects such generic truth. On the vertical ax we position the focus and field of view of the wearer on the surrounding reality. We call it vigilance by the natural view of the wearer’s eyes. On the horizontal ax of the graph we position the level of enrichment of that natural view by a device on the wearer’s nose. We call this the feed of the wearer’s mind by the pair of glasses. Obviously the horizontal and vertical ax reflect opposite forces or call it conflicting interests in seizing the wearer’s attention. At one end of the spectrum […]

Intel is popularly known for its advanced-technology oriented gadgets and now it plans to take a step forward in the field of Virtual Reality industry and other emerging technologies. Using Virtual Reality Headsets Without Wires, Phones, Or Computers VR is the most advanced technology today and it is taking its steps in almost every industry today. But, currently, the VR devices are dependent on a connection with a high-powered PC or a smartphone without which they cannot work. Now, Intel aims to remove this drawback of Virtual Reality and bring it with the benefit of a wireless technology. For this purpose, it comes up with its “Project Alloy” project which will promote the VR technology as a wireless one, an independent one. Project Alloy consists of VR as well as augmented reality system that can convert the real-life objects into digital ones in the virtual world without requiring any external sensors. For example, you can experience yourself picking up digital objects if you are in a mall. For this, Intel uses its “RealSense” technology wherein a 3-in-1 camera tries to capture the depth and track human motion just similar to a human eye. Further, Intel aims to allow the developers […]
Virtual Reality technology has taken its steps in almost every sector of life and is changing the lives of the people with its life-changing experiences through its innovative creations. Cancer Research UK is taking itself on the flight of VR by creating a virtual flower garden at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in London. The garden is named as “Life garden” which will involve the physical installation and the visitors will enter a visible endless field of flowers when they will put on their Oculus Rift headsets. This VR experience will display more than 100,000 flowers featuring the names of supporters who left a gift to the charity in their will. This was the way of giving the funds to the CRUK’s research. This VR experience not only gives the visualization of these flowers but also it allows for sound to be positioned in 3D space.
