Microsoft targets 'mixed reality' with new devices

The Japan Times

Seattle โ€“ Microsoft on Thursday debuted hardware for reaching into virtual worlds powered by its technology as it looked to "mixed reality" as the next big computing platform. An update coming to the Windows 10 operating system later this year will "see the magic of mixed reality brought to consumers around the world," Microsoft Executive Vice President Terry Myerson said at the company's annual Build developers conference in Seattle. Mixed reality motion controllers shown at the conference pair with headsets made by Microsoft partners using Windows software, and let users interact with both virtual and augmented reality. "Mixed reality is the future of computing," said Microsoft technical fellow Alex Kipman, the software engineer behind the HoloLens augmented reality gear. "Windows 10 is the only operating system created specifically and from the ground up for mixed reality devices."


IoT World News - Mastercard's Vision of Virtual Reality Banks & Augmented Reality Incentives

#artificialintelligence

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) remain nascent technologies at this moment in time. However, for those companies with developed internet-of-things game plans, both VR and AR frequently feature as central components, targeting enterprises and industrial players just as much as everyday consumers. When Mastercard steps up to speak at Internet of Things World this May, they'll be discussing how third parties can be employed most effectively to deliver on these strategies. Mastercard's Internet of Things World speaker Stephane Wyper, senior vice president of new commerce partnerships and commercialization, leads a team tasked with commercializing the opportunities that IoT, VR and AR present. Scrutinize the 400 speakers featured on the conference agenda all you like - you're unlikely to find a greater advocate for prioritizing VR and AR in the IoT space.
