More #VisionPro Thoughts
1. If anyone else launched with a cable & external battery, they'd be criticized heavily. Why does Apple get a pass?
2. Many say $3500 isn't a lot for a first gen product for a new category. Even if it was, most of those were business devices, this isn’t
#VisionPro is not a first gen device, it’s Apple’s first gen device. Magic Leap would’ve been a better candidate for first product in the category and comparing that price, even though it was originally pitched as consumer, it ended up being a business device as well.
Many new categories begin as business devices, which mitigates price concerns since ROI is easier to justify higher costs. I don’t think Apple could’ve built #VisionPro at a lower price with these specs. But it has clearly decided to go ultra-premium first for the best experience

HOLD UP: Apple just dropped Apple Vision Pro.

It’s a whole AR computer in your headset.

Say goodbye to reality as you know it.

#WWDC23 #AppleVisionPro #AR
This is the “first Apple product you look through, not at.”

You can interact with the 3D interface using your eyes, hands, and voice.

The home view is like a hologram in front of you.
How to control it:

- Forget about controllers- you only need your eyes, hands, and voice.

- Gesture, gaze, and gab with your hands, eyes, and Siri to make things happen.

1/ 🎉 Day 8 of #AllinAI: As someone who's always been fascinated by #AR #VR and 3D scanning, I'm excited to explore Neural Radiance Fields (#NeRF)! NeRF is a game-changing AI technique that has transformed the 3D scene reconstruction & rendering. Let's dive in!
2/ 📊 Traditional 3D scanning methods like #photogrammetry & #lidar faced challenges like noise, inconsistencies & limited detail. NeRF uses AI to help overcome these by creating high-quality 3D renderings from 2D images.
3/ 🌐 How it works: Take a few pictures of an object. NeRF's deep neural network optimizes the radiance field to match the 2D image, combining color & volume density to create a stunning, detailed 3D rendering.

Curious about virtual reality? See how UAB is providing opportunities to engage with this technology across campus. 🧵
A recent story highlighted how surgeons in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery are using virtual reality headsets to prepare for delicate procedures and explain the operations to patients.:

On Feb. 28, the UAB Marnix E. Heersink Institute for Biomedical Innovation hosted a Metahealth Symposium exploring how UAB uses VR, AR and mixed reality to educate patients, create training simulations and redefine online classes at @UABHeersink.

I wanted to imagine how we’d better use #stablediffusion for video content / AR.

A major obstacle, why most videos are so flickery, is lack of temporal & viewing angle consistency, so I experimented with an approach to fix this

See 🧵 for process & examples
Ideally you want to learn a single representation of an object across time or different viewing directions to perform a *single* #img2img generation on.

For this I used (2021)
This learns an "atlas" to represent an object and its background across the video.

Regularization losses during training help preserve the original shape, with a result that resembles a usable slightly "unwrapped" version of the object Image

Wanna know bout the effect on national security & global stability of #QuantumHacking in #Web3 #Crypto #AI #VR & #AR by nation-state-backed hacker groups like #USCyberCommand, #NorthKorea, #Iran, #Russia, & #China?

You do? Here's you're TL;DR to minimize your Units of Attention
APT (Advanced Persistent Threat) groups are a prime example of nation-state-backed hacker groups

#CozyBear (APT29), #LazarusGroup (APT38), #DoubleDragon (APT41), #FancyBear (APT28), and #HelixKitten (APT34) are some of the most well-known APT groups
These groups have been known to carry out cyber espionage, intellectual property theft, and sabotage. For instance, the #FancyBear APT group was responsible for the alleged 2016 US election interference

1/4 So what's the idea of the "universal #AR tracker" I'm working on?
We have:
- Surface tracking (including multiple points on vertical and horizontal surfaces)
- Image tracking
- Spatial (device) tracking
- Head / Face / Hand / Body / etc.
2/4 I'm working on a wrapper that allows seamlessly passing objects from one to another, let's say grab an object by hand from surface/image/space in #AR.

To do it, all objects are processed in world space and the wrapper has methods to smoothly attach them to various trackers.
3/4 This is very different from animations or reparenting: the transition of position and rotation is always smooth in any conditions and looks super natural.

The #metaverse is inevitable and it's going to be worth TRILLIONS

BUT there’s one huge problem – our current infrastructure can’t support it

Protocols such as @RenderToken aim to fix this and, as such, have the potential to increase in value by 30x – 80x

Here’s how


🧵 Image

Render is a decentralized “marketplace” that allows users to rent out unused #GPU processing power to #render 3D objects (we’ll explain this in a second)

It has a MC of $123M, FDV of $260M, and its $RNDR token trades at $0.48

In 2021, the token price hit $8.76

This thread will cover the following:

• Industry overview

• What problem does Render solve?

• How does it work?

• What are its plans for the future?

• Who are the key players in the ecosystem?

• What are its #tokenomics?

• What’s the potential value of #RNDR?

A vote I'm watching in #AR: whether or not voters will amend the state constitution to essentially give people a religious opt out from *any* law. (You read that right.)

With 26% of the vote in, the ballot measure is down about 8.5 pts.
In case you think I'm exaggerating, here's the language. This would apply strict scrutiny to literally every state action in Arkansas, as long as the objection is rooted in religion. This would be a nightmare for enforcement of civil rights protections and... well, every law. Image
You can follow along with the results here. Right now, this ballot measure is running waaaay behind Sarah Huckabee Sanders and John Boozman. Shows just how out of step and extreme it is.…

SDKs I recommend for #AR & #VR with details that makes each of them unique & useful for different use cases:

📌 MRTK (Microsoft Mixed Reality Toolkit): one of my favorites and it is a powerful open source project that accelerates cross-platform mixed reality creation.

🧵 Thread Image
MRTK provides a lot of features and supports a large amount of XR devices such as HoloLens 2, Meta Quest, Windows Mixed Reality, SteamVR, and others.

More information about MRTK:…
📌 AR Foundation: a super useful cross-platform wrapper around augmented reality SDKs that allow you to work with a common set of APIs.

The idea of AR Foundation is to use XR Plugins such as Google ARCore XR Plug-in (on Android) Apple ARKit XR Plug-in (on iOS), and others.

Apple’s VR technology has been slowly revealed to us over the years, right under our noses. #apple #AppleEvent #VR #AR #VirtualReality
I’ve written a little about this but will elaborate a little more… Time for another thread. So grab a snack…
Last week I read a bit of that interview of Mark Zuckerberg where he was talking about their next VR headset. He went on to talk about how right now, they are getting their Avatars to be more expressive… such as Mouth movement, eyebrows… etc. Sounded a lot like…
…A lot like what apple showed us in 2017… Animoji. They had the Mouth and Eyebrow thing nailed down like 5 years ago, just think of where they are at right now. In 2017, they didn’t call it an Avatar, and they certainly didn’t talk about a Metaverse.

I think most people look at the VR headsets that exist today, and think that nobody is going to be walking around with that huge thing on their face. What they don’t see… is 10 years from now…
10 years from now, when this tech has matured and been shrunken down into a pair of glasses… ok… maybe slightly larger than glasses but that’s the goal. In 10 years… using a device that has a large screen on it will start to seem silly.
Many people have huge TV’s in their house… large computer monitors… and they get upgraded/replaced often enough to continue filling up landfills. People dedicate so much space in their home for TV watching, and for their computers…
