1.Niantic Brings Its Real-World Metaverse To Browsers

With the release of Lightship VPS for Web, Niantic is offering the web an even more powerful platform for augmented reality. This ground-breaking browser-based technology will link the physical and virtual worlds by anchoring Web AR (browser-based augmented reality) information to specific places and allowing virtual items to interact with the physical environment.

Lightship VPS for Web will revolutionise the world around you by offering personalised and engaging augmented reality experiences. These reality-altering applications may turn ordinary places into spectacular virtual experiences. You’ll be able to interact with the world around you in whole new ways after you’ve unlocked the digital counterpart of your surroundings. This may be accomplished by using the traffic provided by the platform’s visual location services.

Niantic CEO John Hanke stated in an official press release, “At Niantic, we believe that the real-world metaverse should engage people exploring and connecting with the world around them.” “Bringing Lightship VPS to the Web is a crucial step forward for AR, allowing developers to realistically fuse digital material to the actual environment with accuracy and permanence,” he says.

Developers that wish to develop augmented reality experiences based on real-world locales must first understand what their consumers are looking at. Creators can now produce immersive experiences that are both personal and permanent with the Lightship VPS by anchoring content to particular spots across the world using the company’s AR map.

Developers will be able to construct and maintain their own location-based web AR experiences using the Lightship Virtual Environments. They may also remotely mimic their experiences by utilising the Geo Browser on the 8th Wall platform.

Before Lightship Virtual Environments was officially released, a number of 8th Wall developers were allowed to beta test the programme by constructing their own location- based web AR experiences. These experiences have been displayed in cities all around the world, including London, Paris, Tokyo, New York, and Sydney.

3. Meta Quest 3 Leak Suggests Cheaper Consumer Device to Soon Follow Quest Pro

Brad Lynch (aka ‘SadlyItsBradley’) has been a major factor behind many of the previous Quest Pro leaks, and now Lynch has disclosed in a new video what he thinks to be CAD data

page2image29590128 page2image29591168

connected to a ‘lower-end’ consumer headset that follows in the footsteps of Quest 2, purportedly dubbed Quest 3.

Lynch claims that the item in issue is called ‘Stinson,’ and that it will be released in 2023. Furthermore, he claims that the headset will be a step forward from the Quest 2 and the impending Quest Pro, with the latter focusing more on augmented reality duties owing to the inclusion of a colour passthrough camera and depth sensor.

Here’s a quick rundown of Lynch’s main points:

    1. Soft strap like Quest 2 and no back-mounted battery

    2. 2 cameras for 6DOF tracking

    3. 4-camera array: 2 BW + 2 RGB

    4. Depth sensor

    5. 2 LCD displays

    6. mechanical IPD adjustments

    7. Pancake lenses

    8. No eye or face tracking

    9. Single fan design

    10. Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 (second gen) SoC

    11. Pogo pin connector for dock charging

The headset is expected to be a lower-cost, consumer-oriented gadget that will be released after Quest Pro. Assuming the leak is genuine and represents a near-final product, it actually makes a lot of sense given that Meta may use its $800+ Quest Pro as a sort of high-end developer kit to kick off the development of a new rash of mixed reality games and experiences, with the end goal of capitalising on that new influx of content with a more commercially accessible product.

XR News Round Up[26.09.2022] – Pico 4 launched and its giving competition to Quest!

Everyone, have a Happy Navaratri! This weekend, people in India are celebrating one of the most prominent festivals, and I am very thrilled for Dandiya, a type of dance performed during Navaratri! I wish you a nice weekend as well. 

Anyway, it’s been a fairly exciting week in the AR/VR sector as Apple’s mixed reality headgear has been the topic of much speculation in recent months and finally Pico 4, a potential rival, is here all set to disrupt and give Meta quest 2 a stiff opposition! We’ve got more stuff coming soon…… and now, let’s start another wonderful week with a roundup of news!

  1. Apple Will Release Several AR/VR Headsets, the First Mixed Reality Headset Could Be Called Apple Reality Pro

Apple’s mixed reality headgear has become the subject of much speculation in recent months. According to a new claim, the Cupertino-based company is developing at least three augmented reality and virtual reality headset devices, not just one.

According to Bloomberg’s Apple reporter Mark Gurman, Apple is working on three AR/VR headsets, with the first one, which has been rumoured, perhaps being dubbed the “Apple Reality Pro.” “headset. According to Bloomberg’s Power On newsletter, at least 3 Apple headsets with the codenames “N301,” “N602,” and “N421″ are actively in development.”

The first of these headsets, the N30, is said to be the “Apple Reality Pro,” Apple’s high-end competitor to Meta’s planned Quest Pro headset. The N602, on the other hand, is rumoured to be the successor of Apple’s original Reality Pro headset and may be less expensive. The N421 will be Apple’s long-rumored augmented reality glasses, although it may not be available for some time, according to the story.

This Unique AR Fashion Show Features ‘No Clothes’

2. This One-Of-A-Kind AR Fashion Show Features ‘No Clothes’

If you’re a lover of augmented reality (AR) technology, you’ve probably come across the work of Doddz, a prominent AR designer who’s collaborated on a range of fantastic AR experiences with everyone from Disney and Facebook to Doja Cat and Drake.

The multi-talented developer has also collaborated on interactive fashion creations with celebrities such as Shaquille O’Neal and Anthony Joshua. Doddz expanded their fashion goals with a one-of-a-kind runway presentation at London’s Kacheete. The exhibition, which was created in collaboration with Snapchat, acted as a showcase for Doddz’s new AR fashion line, Defy. Rather than wearing actual clothing, attendees used the Snapchat app to project digital apparel over the models in real time.

Immersive technology is primed to be the next big thing in fashion, with the debut of AR headsets just a few years away. Major corporations have already begun to investigate how AR may be used to augment existing apparel or develop totally new combinations.

RTFKT, for example, has lately produced a selection of Nike NFT sweatshirts. Each NFT includes a tangible sweatshirt with a one-of-a-kind QR code that, when scanned, displays a pair of digital wings. Previously, the studio released the RTFKT x Nike Dunks Genesis Crypto Kicks, a pair of real sneakers with NFT equivalents.

3. For Enterprise, Pico 4 Pro will have eye and face tracking as well as autoIPD.

In addition to the Pico 4 consumer headset, the business has also developed a Pico 4 Pro model geared towards enterprise use-cases. Pico 4 was unveiled this week, pitting it directly against Meta’s Quest 2. However, it looks like the company is prepping for Meta’s upcoming Project Cambria, a high-end enterprise-focused standalone headset (which is rumoured to be called the Quest Pro).

Along with the Pico 4, the business unveiled the Pico 4 Pro. The headgear, which is expected to be released later this year, seems to be roughly the same in terms of technology, but with the addition of three internal cameras for eye and facial tracking. Pico states the Pico 4 Pro will feature automated IPD adjustment with eye-tracking by monitoring the user’s IPD every time the headset is put on and then altering the IPD distance with a motorised drive. While the Pico 4 has a motorised drive, it does not include eye-tracking, hence the IPD value must be adjusted manually.

Aside from eye and facial tracking, the Pico 4 Pro looks to have the same technology as the Pico 4, including a Snapdragon XR2 CPU, 2,160 2,160 (4.7MP) per-eye resolution, and pancake lenses with a reported 105° field-of-view. A complete list of the headset’s specifications can be found here.

Pico 4 Pro, on the other hand, will be significantly different in terms of software. According to the business, the headgear would have an enterprise-focused variation of its operating system and will not require any type of “personal identity” to operate, implying no logins. Pico

has yet to disclose a particular release date or pricing for the Pico 4 Pro, however it has stated that the headset would be available in the US at some point later this year.

4. Pico 4: Everything you need to know about Byte dance’s Quest 2 competitor

For the past two years, the VR market has been firmly in control. Meta Quest 2 swiftly established a quasi-monopoly by offering beginner-friendly virtual reality at an unbelievable price. The Pico 4 is the first virtual reality headset to threaten this position. It functions independently, provides well-known VR games, and costs less than a Meta Quest 2 despite having somewhat superior technology.

Byte Dance, the parent company of TikTok and a competitor to Meta, purchased Pico in the summer of 2021: The owner of the fastest-growing social network is now competing with Meta in the virtual reality industry by investing in technology and pricing its goods competitively. While Pico previously offered its VR goods primarily to corporations and Chinese customers, the company is now expanding into the Western market as ByteDance. The Pico Neo 3 Link was the first to hit the market.

Pico finally debuted the Pico 4 on September 22nd, after much speculation. This is the first time that Western consumers have the option of choosing between two low-cost standalone headsets: Meta Quest 2 and Pico 4. Although the Pico 4 incorporates certain new VR technology, it is not a direct competitor to Meta’s planned Quest Pro VR headset. The Pico 4 Pro, which will be released later, is more suited for this purpose.

5. AmazeVR receives a million-dollar investment following a successful virtual tour.

Following the achievement of a successful movie tour, more investors are seeing possibilities in virtual concerts and AmazeVR. AmazeVR has gained new investors, who have invested an additional $17 million in the firm. Mirae Asset Capital is leading the current Series B fundraising. This, as well as investments from Mirae Asset Venture Investment, CJ Investment, Smile gate Investment, GS Futures, and LG Technology Ventures, were renewed. CJ ENM and Krafton are two new strategic investors.

$17 million for virtual reality concerts

So far, the firm has put its technology through its paces on several tours, including specially designed concert buses and movie theatres. The firm intends to provide its digitally improved live experiences to music listeners at home beginning in the first quarter of 2023. Users will be able to witness the performances in the comfort of their own living rooms via in-home streaming for VR headsets such as the Meta Quest 2.

Megan Thee Stallion, a rap artist, poses in front of a fantastical fire ring. Megan Thee Stallion, a rap artist, is also on the list for the impending in-home streaming. AmazeVR would hope to get additional supporters by December 2022. The start-up received a $15 million investment in January. One explanation for the upbeat attitude might be the summer’s successful “Enter Thee Hottieverse” tour. Megan Thee Stallion’s virtual performance visited AMC cinemas in 15 locations, with 75 percent of seats sold out.

That’s almost 4.3 times the normal movie theatre occupancy rate of 15 to 20%, according to TechCrunch. At the same time, the $20 to $25 ticket price is much higher than the average movie ticket price ($9.17).

AmazeVR intends to provide in-home streaming in 2023.

AmazeVR intends to launch its “Music Metaverse service” in all major VR app stores in the first quarter of 2023. The business isn’t identifying specific platforms yet, but the news release teases them, including Apple’s expected VR headset: “AmazeVR is pioneering VR concert production and online distribution ahead of several big 2023 debuts, including next generation headsets like the Meta Quest Pro (October 2022) and Apple’s own VR gear.” According to CEO Ernest Lee, the fresh cash will assist develop collaborations with artists, agencies, labels, and publishers. AmazeVR also hopes to recruit celebrities to their service.

Enterprise Pico 4 Pro Will Add Eye- and Face-Tracking with Auto-IPD

In addition to the Pico 4 headset for consumers, which was unveiled this week, the company also unveiled a Pico 4 Pro model for business use-cases. 

With this week’s launch of Pico 4, Pico is preparing to face off against Meta’s Quest 2. However, it appears that the business is also attempting to get ready for Meta’s planned Project Cambria, a premium standalone headset with an enterprise focus (which is rumoured to be called the Quest Pro).

The business also disclosed Pico 4 Pro along with Pico 4. The headset appears to be basically the same from a hardware viewpoint and is reportedly planned to release later this year. However, three internal cameras for eye and face tracking have been added.

In order to provide automated IPD adjustment with eye-tracking, Pico claims that the Pico 4 Pro will measure the user’s IPD each time the headset is put on and then modify the IPD distance with a motorised drive. The Pico 4 has a motorised drive as well, but because it lacks eye-tracking, the IPD value must be manually set.

Pico also states that the internal cameras may be utilised for “52 points” of face-tracking, but it’s unclear whether or not most of those are derived directly from samples or inferred from models. The only commercial headsets that have attempted face-tracking have had to use large under-slung cameras due to the difficulty in gaining a clear picture of the face and the results being very susceptible to the uncanney valley. It will be interesting to see what Pico can accomplish with a camera that is largely concealed and is supposedly pointed down at the user’s mouth. 


However, Pico 4 Pro will be significantly different in terms of the software. The company claims that the headgear will come with an enterprise-focused version of its operating system and won’t require any sort of “personal identification” to function, which, ideally, means no logins. 

Pico says the Pico 4 Pro headset will arrive later this year and will eventually be accessible in the US, but it has not yet provided a pricing or an exact release date.

HaptX, a developer of high-end virtual reality gloves, has just raised $23 million.

HaptX Raises $23 Million Investment

The virtual reality glove manufacturer HaptX has announced the successful completion of a $23 million funding round. The money will be used to speed up the release of the company’s next generation of products, according to the company.

HaptX has spent a lot of time and effort perfecting its haptic VR gloves for business use. The firm also boasts force-feedback and micro-pneumatic haptics, which apply pressure to the skin to simulate the sensation of an object resisting your grip. While HaptX’s haptic VR gloves are the most realistic I’ve tried, they are also the heaviest and most expensive.

The company reports high demand from businesses after the release of its ‘DK2’ gloves in early 2021.

Based on this success, HaptX recently made public its receipt of a $23 million fundraising round, bringing the total to around $58 million. Verizon Ventures, Mason Avenue Investments, and Taylor Frigon Capital Partners joined the fresh round of funding led by AIS Global and Crescent Cove Advisors.

HaptX also announced that it has “extended its partnership with AIS Global,” signifying AIS’s intent to assist HaptX in expanding its business to meet the needs of more consumers.

“HaptX and AIS Global have built a deep, successful relationship dedicated to innovation at the cutting edge of the high-growth global haptics market,” stated Joe Baddeley, CEO of AIS Global. HaptX’s commercial footprint will be rapidly expanded thanks to the backing of AIS Global and KPS, who are “thrilled to provide the resources, commitment, and experience essential to support fast expansion.”
