Rant: Seven Reasons I know current VR/AR technology is succeeding for consumer and enterprise

3 Years of actual market data tells us that VR/AR are viable industries so let's stop with this VR/AR is dead or not going to work nonsense

retweet if you trust data over opinions! 1/9
First HMD sales: True consumer VR (6DOF) was off to a slow start, but year after year the market has grown and there is now an install base of over 7+M (3+M PSVR, 4+M PC VR) 2/9 Thanks @RtoVR for the nice graphic
True VR (6dof heads and hands) has until now been very user unfriendly: high cost, need of a tethered computer, complicated set up with external sensors, and a long time to vr from boot, especially with troubleshooting drivers and other issues. The @Oculus Quest solves all this!

─The internet will not scale to meet the demands of #AI, #IoT and video streaming without active participation from service providers.
─A lightweight autonomous underwater vehicle for a maximum depth of 200m. The Sparus II is capable of hovering and has an easily configurable payload area and an open software architecture.

1/ Here’s how I built the iconic first level of #SuperMarioBros as a life-size first person AR game that I played in @CentralParkNYC . Read on below!
2/ Ideas can come from anywhere. It all began with a simple cube. While learning @HoloLens dev I mistakenly placed a cube above my head, walked under it and looked up. The image of a #Mario brick flashed through my head
3/ Unable to find 3D assets in the style I wanted, I decided to recreate them myself. Used @adskFusion360 & had to consider things like how will bricks & characters I’ve only ever seen in 2D appear from the various angles that #AR enables.

This reminds me of when I was at @QualcommVenture and the @HoloLens came out in 2016. @sdesh & I conducted our own deep tech investigation on why the FOV of #AR wasn’t full-field, & came away with massive respect for what was accomplished by the @Microsoft team.

So ok thread 1/
We realized that the way #VR gets to full-frame FOV was by warping the lenses between your eyes and the display, “blowing up” the screen by wrapping it around your eyes. You can’t do that with #AR bc then you’d warp the actual world, making it unviewable

2/
So the commonly discussed “dream” of a single headset where you just “drop a black screen behind AR and you get VR” is very far away because the requirements of the two are not as similar as one would expect.

0/ The stream of #crypto- and #blockchain-related news knows no end!

To help you stay on top of all that's been happening over the past 24 hours, I've put together this 22-part thread.
1/ ☁️ @helloiconworld [ $ICX ] launched 'ICON Development Network' on #Amazon's AWS Marketplace, allowing developers to easily run a private instance of the ICON #blockchain network through @awscloud.

Makes building on #ICON far more convenient. medium.com/helloiconworld…
2/ ✍️ @_PoetProject [ $POE ] - a decentralized protocol for content ownership, discovery and monetization in media - is now live on the #bitcoin #mainnet!

Partnership announcements and product updates in the coming weeks. Growing strong! blog.po.et/the-better-web…

Great conversation last night about what is a feature vs what is the hook when it comes to “what makes a great product” in #XR.

Start with this list of what is the “Killer App” for #VR and notice how often features are mistaken for apps.

#gamedev 1/10
My definitions: A feature is an embellishment which can make a product better, while the hook is the core experience that drives users to the product. Think of features as the asterisk icons on the back of a video game box. 2/10
A friend pitched me an app idea using shared identity across apps with addictive ad-clicking behavior for revenue. He said he would play that all the time on his phone to level up. I asked “play what?” He had no answer because he focused on the features but not the hook. 3/10

It's quite unreal... the phone in your pocket was just turned into a full-power gaming rig, (expensive) photo post-processing studio, and a Machine Learning hub

It will be a while before everyone (hey there Siri...) can even catch up to make full use of all this power
Cue to 11:55 in to hear @stevesi & @BenedictEvans discuss the insane computational power of the new #iPhoneXS / XR series chip: The original Toy Story Pixar render *farm* had < 1/3 of the new A12's 6.9 billion transistors, 5 trillion ops/second!

Cue to 17:50 for the bits on the Apple Watch/Health and #privacy strategy coming together, near certain to gain even more importance with coming iGlasses / #AR progression...

Many friends have expressed interest in learning more about the VR/AR landscape, but don’t know where to start. As an active member of this community for 4+ years, I thought I’d kick off a recurring #FF thread of the people you need to pay attention in XR.
Keep an eye out for new names every Friday 💪 NOTE: this is not a comprehensive/ranked list. These are people who I have known to be valuable sources in #VR, #AR, & #MR.
KENT BYE
You have to start with the Voice of VR himself: @KentBye. Armed with his trusty microphone, he’s become a fixture at conferences—not just for his expansive knowledge in emerging technologies (check out his new @voicesofai podcast), but for his killer dance moves.

[#musetech syllabus thread: week 6!] This week's readings focused on in-gallery tech. We kicked off the topic with @rosemarybeetle's blog post on what the @V_and_A learned from observing visitors vam.ac.uk/blog/digital-m…
We also investigated @CultureGrrl's critique of @cooperhewitt's Pen, @ClevelandArt's Gallery One, and @MuseumModernArt's Audio+ wsj.com/articles/the-b…
We also delved into the responses @CultureGrrl received from #musetech pros like @SarahatReynolda @donundeen @sebchan @caw_ who largely called for a more nuanced (and inclusive) critique of the role tech can play in museum visits artsjournal.com/culturegrrl/20…
