DirectX 12

 

One of the biggest changes in technology that's coming this year is DirectX 12 and the new set of standards, which will be used on both Windows 10 and the Xbox One. Elijah Freeman, an executive producer at Crytek, is quoted by GamingBolt as saying that his team might benefit from the fact that better optimization will be possible, which in turn will make it easier to run consistently at high-frame rates. 

 

He states, "Everything which helps to make drawcalls more efficient is highly useful, so DX12 with its reduced API overhead and better parallelization capabilities can definitely play a part in helping us create more complex VR worlds than before."

 

DirectX 12 is supposed to introduce a wide variety of improvements, and Microsoft has not yet offered a clear launch date for it. Another piece of tech that has received a lot of attention recently is the cloud and the way it can be used to boost the quality of graphics for a title or to enhance its gameplay.

 

Freeman believes that it will have a smaller impact on virtual reality gaming because minimum latency is required. If DirectX 12 offers a solid boost to VR, it will be a little ironic, given that Microsoft is not working on a solution in this field.

After forming the GVRA with Sony, Acer, Facebook, HTC and Google, Samsung is reportedly looking to launch its first ever AR (augmented reality) headset. Additionally, the company is also in the process of bringing forth the next Gear VR headset as well. Apparently, it was vice-president Sung-Hoon Hong himself who had revealed the aforementioned information at the Virtual Reality Summit in San Diego.


"Samsung's hologram technology is really, really realistic. It looks really touchable," - Sung-Hoon Hong.


In more of what he said at the summit, it might have been indicated that the next Gear VR headset is going to debut at the Mobile World Congress in February, 2017. Considering that it was only a few months back that Samsung had launched the last Gear VR, along with the disastrous Galaxy Note 7, we suggest that you take this news with a pinch of salt.


If you are excited about the augmented reality project, the report mentions that Samsung is planning to target businesses with this upcoming headset, rather than direct consumers. Even then, it is too early in the day to predict where and in which way the AR project will be heading in the future. A startup named Magic Leap was mentioned by Hoon according to the report and speculations suggest that this has something to do with the AR project in question here.

VR

 

According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Google has Android version for virtual reality in the works. The new build will allow the search giant to compete with the likes of Facebook, which recently acquired Oculus for $2 billion.

 

Android for VR will be freely distributed just like its sibling for smartphones and tablets. Google has reportedly committed tens of engineers to the project. Two of the engineers behind Google Cardboard are said to be leading the project.

 

No timeline on the release of Android VR has been mentioned. I won't be surprised if we hear more about the platform during this year's Google I/O.

Google has released a free Motion Stills app that allows any Android phone with a built-in gyroscope that runs Android 5.1 or higher access to the latest augmented reality technology. Google's latest app was built with editing videos and GIFS in mind. It allows the user to capture short videos and change them into stunning cinemagraphs or sweeping cinematic pans using their advanced rendering and stabilization technology. Now you can combine AR stickers and clips into movies or create looping GIFS that you can easily share with your friends.


Not Just For Pixel 2


Google Pixel 2 owners have already been enjoying adding a host of fun AR stickers, including R2-D2 and Stranger Things characters, into the real world using the device's built-in ARCore technology. Pixel 2 owners with the Android Oreo 8.1 update received early access to Google's library of AR stickers since December last year.

This is no longer an exclusive club of AR aficionados as Google's Motion Still app is opening the market by making it easier to access. The latest version of the Motion Stills app brings all the fun of these AR stickers to a decent cross section of Android devices, making it easy for anyone to insert 3D objects into the surroundings before recording.


Motion Still Features


With Motion Still, you can:


        Use the AR mode to add fun characters to your surroundings.

        Create a short, 3 second clip with a simple tap of your screen.

        Condense up to a minute of video into a short clip by using the Fast Forward mode.

        Combine clips to create movies with a simple swipe to the right.

        Share your Motion Stills as short videos or cool looping GIF's directly with your friends.


The AR functionality is by far the most appealing feature of the app. Using this function you can stick an animated 3D object on any surface, even if it is moving. You can then record a video or GIF of the animated character's actions in the real world and share your Motion Stills clip directly with your friends. Sounds pretty awesome!


How Does the App Work?


You can get into the finer technical details of the app on Google Research's blog but the short explanation is that the app will track your phone's 3D rotation and location in relation to the ground or any flat surface that is in view. With this data, it is able to insert a 3D object into your real world surroundings and will scale up and down proportionally as you move closer or further from the AR character. This could be implemented in many ways and would also making playing at River Belle casino and any other gaming site so much more interactive.


Accessing AR Technology is Becoming Easier


Google is paving the way in terms of making the wonders of augmented reality technology more accessible to a wider audience. You'll probably have noticed that some of the best and most recent apps in the augmented reality category are confined almost exclusively to more advanced phones that run the latest operating software. So it's a great thing that Google is trying to grow the market by making these AR features available on any Android device that runs Android 5.1 or higher. Of course, the hope is that these new users will enjoy the taste of AR so much that they'll be more inclined to upgrade to the Pixel 2 which comes standard with the more advanced ARCore tech.



There is no doubt about the potential that VR holds for the future of entertainment and now some of the biggest names in the business have joined forces in order to initiate the largest promotional campaign for VR till date. The Global Virtual Reality Association or GVRA comprises of Facebook Oculus, HTC Vive, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Google, Acer Starbreeze and of course, Samsung.



The group will be responsible for developing, as well as setting software and hardware standards for everything related to the virtual reality business. The campaign is set forward to not only standardize and control the VR market, but also to make VR more popular, attractive, useful and consumer friendly all around the world. As most of the major players in the business have now united (barring a few like Microsoft) under one organization, research and development will probably reach new heights faster than ever before. However, it will be interesting to see if they can make the technology more appealing and affordable for the general masses all around the globe.

While virtual reality was viewed as a niche product in the past, businesses across industries are starting to harness the power of VR to achieve their goals. In fact, the only limit to the use of VR is your own imagination. Let's take a look at some interesting ways of how virtual reality development transforms businesses. 


1. Training


This is a crucial use case for VR because it immerses the employee in a lifelike environment or situation without actually having to deal with all of the problems the pose in the real world. For example, Walmart has used virtual reality technology in order to simulate the working conditions of Black Friday. This way, the employees will be ready for long lines, agitated customers, and the stress that comes with it. 


2. Retail


Virtual reality offers a lot of benefits for both customers and businesses. A great example of this is what Ikea is doing to help customers pick out their furniture. If the customer is on the fence about buying something, they can use the app to see what a specific piece of furniture will look like in their home. This allows customers to overcome their hesitations and helps eliminate buyer's remorse. 


3. Construction


It's one thing to present clients and inventors with a drawing of a proposed building and another to allow them actually to see the and walk through the proposed design. Thanks to new developments, it is now easier than ever to turn paper plans into 3D computer models.


4. Data Visualization


Thanks to VR, you will soon be able to say goodbye to boring meetings and presentations where you have to read data off PowerPoint presentations or other charts. VR will allow data to be displayed in 3D, which means that you will be able to interact with it dynamically. 


5. Manufacture


VR can be very useful in the manufacturing sector since it can be applied in the design and prototyping process. In fact, companies such as Boeing and Airbus are already employing this technology, so they do not have to build expensive prototypes and are even the interior design of the cabin. 


6. Real Estate


When someone is considering buying a new home, it is not enough to simply tell them about a property. You would be much more helpful to show them what the house looks like in VR which simulate the real-life property to the most minute detail. This also eliminates the need for home buyers to physically travel to a location to view a house or an apartment. 


Exploring the uses of virtual reality as a tool will change the way you do business and can give you an essential edge in today's tech-focused climate. Focus now on understanding the range of possibilities and investing in the technology needed to make the most of virtual reality. Whether you're training your team or offering a cutting-edge digital experience to customers, VR can change the way you interact and do business going forward.


 


Gear vr

 

Alongside the new Galaxy Note 4 phablet, Samsung is today announcing a new accessory, the Gear VR. The Gear VR is a virtual reality headset powered by the Note 4. Samsung built it in partnership with Oculus, maker of the Oculus Rift, arguably the best VR headset, and recent Facebook acquistion. The company says the Gear VR will be available later this fall for an unspecified price.

 

The Gear VR brings to mind Google's Cardboard project, which uses a smartphone and cheap lenses to provide a basic 3D virtual reality experience.

 

Gear VR

 

The Gear VR uses the Note 4 (and Only the Note 4, it's not compatible with any other smartphone, Samsung or otherwise) for all of its processing and display features. The Note 4 snaps into the Gear VR, in front of dual-lenses that provide the 3D effect. There's a trackpad and back button on the right side of the Gear VR, and a focus adjustment on top. Samsung tells me that it's compatible with Bluetooth gaming controllers, but there aren't any specific controls for your hands at this time. Navigating menus, exploring worlds, and playing games is mostly done with head movements and taps on the side-mounted trackpad.

 

Gear VR

 

Using the Gear VR is very similar to using the Oculus Rift: it's a completely immersive experience that detaches you from your real environment. But unlike the Rift, there are no wires tethering you and the Gear VR to a computer, so you can freely move about and walk around. And since you strap the Gear VR to your head, you don't have to hold up to your face the entire time like Google Cardboard. There is a mode to enable the Note 4's rear camera while wearing the Gear VR, so you can "switch off" the virtual experience and see the real world.

Moonlight

 

Samsung's Sept,3 IFA event is very soon. Here's the first look at the upcoming Samsung Virtual Reality Headset. According to the photo source, the company is set to unveil this device (codenamed Project Moonlight) at its upcoming Unpacked event in Berlin and New York, where Samsung is also expected to announce the Galaxy Note 4.

 

The image seems to show a focus dial and ample lenses, as well as a front panel that would hold a phone, falling in line with previous rumors.

 

"Oculus" which uses a Note 3 display in some of its newer headsets has previously been reported to be tied up with this project, a nod to the fact that modern smartphones have large, ultra-high-resolution displays and enough sensors to accomplish much of the orientation that a full virtual reality system needs.
