On the ground floor of a towering office building overlooking Tokyo Bay, in a space intended to resemble the interior of a moon base, a convenience store is tended by a humanoid robot. No, it is in the back, doing the unglamorous job of keeping shelves stocked. It has broad shoulders, wide eyes, a boomerang-shaped head and strange hands, capable of grabbing objects with both suction and a trio of opposable thumbs. Like a marionette on invisible, miles-long strings, the robot at the Lawson convenience store is controlled remotely, by a person elsewhere in the city wearing a virtual-reality headset. Built by Tokyo-based Telexistence, a three-year-old startup, this system is the culmination of nearly 40 years of research, and is the world's first commercial realization of an audacious goal: to enable a person to do any job on Earth from anywhere else.
Our team is officially announcing the launch of a new 3.0 version of Catchar with a marketplace module. We found that some creators use Sketchfab, Gumroad and Etsy to sell and monetize their AR/MR assets. However, creators from CIS, Georgia, Ukraine, Asia and some other countries are limited in payouts from these services. We released a marketplace and asset store where Augmented Reality creators and Machine Learning engineers can list for sale their templates, source code, 3D models and tutorials. Our system provides direct profit payouts through SWIFT and SEPA.
Every industry needs to adapt to current times, technology is constantly evolving and businesses need to catch up and then keep up with the times. The healthcare industry is constantly innovating, from telemedicine to the use of RPA to enhance the patient experience. Thanks to the innovative technology, patients undergo enhanced treatment with the help of virtual reality, wearable devices and much more. The first key trend is the rise in on-demand healthcare, customers want appointments and care that fit around their schedule, they want convenience. People have become far more mobile than previous decades so customers expect and want to be diagnosed and treated online, through online tools so they can stay in the comfort of their home.
TL;DR: As of Sept. 18, Oculus Quest 2 VR headsets, accessories, and bundles are available to pre-order at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, GameStop, and at Oculus.com; the headset itself starts at $299 for 64GB of storage. Between the Nintendo Switch, the Xbox Series X, and the Playstation 5, 2020 is proving to be a huge year for video game consoles. But if initial reviews are to be believed, you're going to want to scoot the all-new Oculus Quest 2 to the top of your "must-buy" list. Announced at the Facebook Connect virtual and augmented reality conference on Sept. 16, the successor to 2019's Oculus Quest is a standalone wireless headset featuring four headset-mounted cameras, 3D positional audio, a high-res display panel capable of supporting 90Hz refresh rates, and the new Snapdragon XR2 chipset, which is specially designed for VR and AR. It's remarkably easy to set up and use (although a Facebook login is required -- boo), and you can choose from two different configurations: either 64GB or 256GB of storage.
Fascinated by technology, connected by words. I am a tech writer and a freelancer. August 29 might possibly be remembered as the day when technology took over the limitations of human life. In one of the most appealing events of technological history, the tech entrepreneur Elon Musk presented a live demonstration of his brain hacking device LINK V0.9. Supposedly, the device fits inside a human brain.
What was the last thing you heard about Amazon (AMZN)? Or was it the FAA's approval of Amazon's delivery drones? Most of this news about Amazon's store is just noise that distracts investors from Amazon's real force. As I'll show, Amazon is running an "operating system" that powers some of today's most important technologies such as virtual reality, machine learning, and even quantum computing. Behind the scenes, it is utilized by over a million companies--including tech giants Apple AAPL, Netflix NFLX, and Facebook FB .
The coronavirus pandemic has transformed the way we work, educate, socialize, and more. At the same time, COVID-19 has also reshaped the manner in which people interact with professional athletic competition. In recent weeks, a number of sports leagues were forced to postpone gameplay to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Since these initial delays, a number of leagues have resumed play without fans in attendance. To enhance the experience for players and fans alike amid the surreal new normal, leagues have incorporated a vast suite of technologies.
The earth is 4.543 billion years young. Fossils of anatomically modern humans have been discovered dating back no more than 300,000 years, and these anatomically modern humans only reached behavioral modernity within the last 50,000 years. In theory, this current human experience or similar human experiences could have spawned 15,143 civilizations, each averaging 300,000 years and not being aware of the previous! With this fact pattern, it is shocking just how much humans claim to know about the earth and history when in this current experience we only have visibility into such a small percentage – less than 0.0001% (50,000/4,543,000,000) of earth's actual history. Enter artificial intelligence and persisting indefinitely.
