Apple AR/VR headset controller test device leaked

Apple AR/VR headset controller test device leaked

Today we're looking at what's likely an internal testing device made by Apple for the near-future release of AR/VR experiences aplenty. This isn't the first we've seen of this sort of hardware - it's not particularly unlike hardware used by HTC and Oculus/Facebook for their own VR headsets.

Valve Index VR kit might be back in stock for less than a day

Although Valve has actually been involved in the virtual reality market for a long time, it has mostly been via its collaboration with HTC's VIVE system. Last year it finally got its hands dirty with the Index, which may be one of the more expensive PC VR systems aimed at regular consumers. Despite the initially slow sales, the Index quickly sold off last January thanks to the Half-Life: Alyx announcement. The good news is that it's coming back next week. The bad news is that it probably won't last long.

OPPO AR Glasses Hands-on: OPPO’s future vision

At OPPO's INNO DAY conference, it revealed its grand vision for growing its business beyond smartphones and, as expected, 5G was one of the core focus of its expansion. This was also unsurprisingly tied to the technologies it enabled and improved, like augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and IoT. What was completely unexpected, however, was that OPPO had been silently working on its own AR glasses for that very purpose. We were able to spend some time with the device to try it out get an early peek at OPPO's vision of its future.

Today’s Magic Leap failure should teach us this one lesson

Information released in a report today showed the company Magic Leap in deep trouble. This is a company that built its reputation on the future of augmented reality, aka AR, creating AR technology (like AR headsets) to capitalize on and participate in the modern world of AR/VR computing. But as losses mounted, they began to reach the wrong milestones - points at which they needed to fire "dozens of employees" and at which important early supporters began leaving the company.

Samsung AR glasses could take the fight to Apple on a new front

As the virtual reality industry appears to be moving away from mobile VR, it seems that phone manufacturers are looking to augmented reality to fill the gap. Apple is said to be working on its own set of AR glasses, and if a new design patent is anything to go on, it appears that Samsung is too.

Computer makers, platform developers, and even Facebook have all been gushing over XR, that new term that embraces virtual, augmented, and mixed reality but many if not all of them have mostly the high-end market in mind.
