Learn about the Bitcoin Blockchain in 3D VR

In the world of virtual reality, everything (well, almost everything) can be perceived and understood better. Same goes with cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin can definitely be hard to imagine, as it’s not physical asset. Even if you are familiar with the way blockchain works, it is still hard to put it in the real picture. Usual graphs and charts make the life even more miserable, so somebody actually discovered more evocative way of depicting bitcoin. We are presenting you – Blockchain 3D Explorer. Kevin Small has created a blockchain explorer that enables anyone to view the bitcoin blockchain in 3D or VR. The British developer is planning

Google Created Poly – Both AR and VR Platform

Google is opening a new platform called Poly where people can find and distribute virtual and augmented reality objects. Built for development kits like Google’s own ARCore, or Apple’s ARKit, Poly allows anyone to upload or view 3D objects in a mobile or desktop browser. Google has been offering a number of tools to make it easier to create those 3D assets for several months now, including the development of the free Tilt Brush and Blocks solutions and their associated websites. Now, Google Poly, makes it easy for creative types both share and access a warehouse of 3D objects and scenes. The 3D objects that are uploaded to Poly are published

UK Gamers Will Have More Chances To Try Out PSVR

While Sony’s PSVR headset for their PS4 console has helped lower the pricing barrier of entry to the world of VR gaming, the fact remains that many people still have yet to experience VR. These people, in turn, have little incentive to pay a couple hundred dollars to get that experience. Fortunately, the industry is aware of this problem. VR arcades are popping up all over the place, offering a way to experience VR for the first time without spending hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on the required hardware. Gaming console and smartphone manufacturers took some inspiration from the growing popularity of the HTC

Google Enables to Browse the Web in VR with Chrome

Virtual reality is something every gamer is talking about. Sure it’s great to win wars, fly in a space or kill a handful of zombies but, what about everyday usage for not-so-gaming population? Google (who else) is working rapidly on transforming the way we experience the everyday stuff – like watching movies or browsing the web. At Google’s I/O developer conference in May, the company announced that it was working on a VR version of Chrome (Chrome 61) that could work in Daydream. Last week, Chrome development team member and “happiness evangelist” François Beaufort announced that the first set of features are now ready for

AMD Reveals World’s First Hardware-Virtualized GPU Product Line

AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) this week revealed the world’s first hardware virtualized GPU products — AMD FirePro™ S-Series GPUs with Multiuser GPU (MxGPU) technology. AMD’s ground-breaking hardware-virtualized GPU architecture delivers an innovative solution in response to emerging user experiences such as remote workstation, cloud gaming, cloud computing, and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). In the virtualization ecosystem, key components like the CPU, network controller and storage devices are being virtualized in hardware to deliver optimal user experiences, but prior to today the GPU was not hardware virtualized. AMD MxGPU technology, for the first time, brings the modern virtualization industry standard to the GPU hardware. What does this mean?

ORNL Showcases Life-like 3D Printed Shelby AC Cobra

At the 2015 Conférence des Nations Unies sur les Changements Climatiques (UN Conference on Climate Change), which takes place in Paris, France, manufacturing division of Oak Ridge National Laboratories presented what they believe is a watershed moment for the future of manufacturing. ORNL Manufacturing demonstrated a 3D printed version of legendary Shelby AC Cobra, printed using an all-metal process. The organization used several different printers to achieve a life like look and feel. By polishing the metal, they ended with the same ‘experience’ as a conventionally manufactured sheet metal would look like. Leather seats were not 3D printed though, but pretty much everything else was.

Croatian Doctors Insert the World’s First 3D Printed Acrylic Vertebrae

3D printing or Additive Manufacturing is slowly, but certainly changing the world for the better, and shortening the time-to-market. In the world of medicine, shortening that ‘time to market’ literally means saving lives. There are numerous theoretical examples where 3D printing could save lives, and we have now witnessed  three surgeries where the technology moved patients from their death beds to recovery rooms and regular life. Only over the past 12 months, we started to see doctors using 3D printed vertebrae to help their patients. First two operations happened in China, on two separate patients. A 12-year old was operated in August 2014,  while a 21-year old cancer patient was operated

3D Printing Electronics is a Reality Now: Meet Voxel8

Electronics manufacturing is a very labor-intensive process, employing a combination of robotic and chemical processes and treatments, manual labor but above all – it is a very dislocated process. Over the course of past 15 years, we managed to witness the manufacturing changed in its scale, employing tens of millions of people and massively reducing time to market. Still, the process takes a lot of time, and not all can be done as efficiently as possible. There are two base components of any piece of electronic equipment on the market: chip and PCB (Printed Circuit Board) and revolution is coming to both: IBM / GlobalFoundries

General Electric Bids its Fuel Efficient Future on 3D Printing

In aircraft business, fuel efficiency is the key metric upon which airlines rise and fall. Good example of successful strategies are gulf carries, all of whom are abandoned older planes in favor of brand new ones, which significantly reduce the fuel consumption. For example, a passenger on Emirates Airlines flies as much as 87 mpg, while older aircraft belong to the sub 60 mpg range (numbers are derived from seat miles per gallon metric). The key to fuel efficiency relies on components that reached its limits in terms of conventional manufacturing. At the 2014 Farnborough International Airshow, GE Aviation, a division of General Electric announced that it plans

3D Printing Goes Big at the International CES 2015

3D Printing TRex

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) is constantly planning venues to showcase new technology. They are already setting the stage for 2015 International CES (Consumer Electronics Show), a show typically held in Las Vegas, Nevada in January each year. 3D printing will be a big part of the convention. CES plans to double the footprint of the 3D printing category. More than 30 companies will be showcasing their latest advancements – many of which probably are still on the drawing board. 3D printing technology has caught fire. With only six months to go before show time, those companies are in hustle mode to announce new products or

Will The Amazon Phone Be an AT&T Exclusive?

Amazon Phone

According to The Wallstreet Journal, the long awaited Amazon phone is likely going to be an AT&T exclusive device. When one looks at this fact, many people may ask why Amazon would even bother to do something like that when nowadays almost all phones launch on all the carriers at the same time. Perhaps AT&T has paid Amazon to do so for a short period of time, however it makes very little sense in terms of Amazon’s global strategy and standard practice of trying to get as many devices in as many hands as possible. Currently, the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX sells with 4G LTE connectivity
