Bjork Digital takes place on 80 Gear VR headsets, plus it's been ported to the HTC Vive complete with full-room tracking. VR enthusiasts will eventually be able to download the videos on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Gear VR and as iOS and Android apps, Variety says. One of the VR videos is the original "Stonemilker" experience that we tried out last year -- it was a beautiful but surprisingly hollow exhibition that felt limited by the hardware itself, featuring Bjork on a black pebble beach. Another video takes place in a Game of Thrones-style cave and yet another is set entirely in Bjork's mouth, Variety says. Bjork Digital also features the premiere of the music video for "Notget," which Bjork teased earlier this week.
In recent years, HTC has partnered with several museums to cultivate VR as a tool for art and learning. New projects are always in the works, and recently the company launched the Vive Arts program, reaffirming its commitment to working with developers and cultural institutions to further explore VR as an artistic and educational medium. The first installation under the Vive Arts banner has now opened at London's Tate Modern gallery as part of a new exhibition celebrating late-19th/early-20th-century Italian painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani. And to its credit, the VR portion of this retrospective is no gimmick.
The new iPads could completely get rid of the iconic home button on their bottom, according to a new leak. The tablets will as a result be able to get rid of the bezel that goes around the side of the phone and make its front almost entirely screen, according to the report. The redesign will mean that the bigger iPad Pro will be able to keep the same screen size but only take up the same amount of space as the 9.7-inch models, according to the same report. It has long been rumoured that Apple is looking to get rid of the home button, but it was expected that would come with the next version of the iPhone. That handset, which will make the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, is expected to be made entirely of glass and have no buttons on its front.
