In an era of slick gadgets, PCs are the dinosaurs, ensnared in wire clutter, sporting tired 2D cameras and stricken with the occasional blue screen of death. Technology coming up in 2015, though, is set to make PCs more interactive, fun and perhaps nosier than you’d like them to be.
Apple’s iPad changed the way people viewed computers and spurred PC innovation. Hardware makers drew ideas from mobile devices, gaming consoles and even 3D printers to rethink the PC, and the resulting new technologies will have a profound effect on how laptops and desktops are used next year and into the future.
Perhaps the most interesting idea is Intel’s “wire-free” PC, in which wireless technology will replace display, charging and data transfer cables. Chip maker Intel next year will show an experimental laptop that has no ports, and relies completely on wireless technology to connect to monitors and external storage devices.
Interactive computers will have 3D cameras that behave more like eyes, with the ability to recognize objects and measure distances. Sensory input through sound, voice and touch will help PCs respond to and anticipate our needs.
And like every year, PCs will get thinner, faster, lighter and have longer battery life. Games and movies will look smashing with higher-resolution displays. The new technology, however, will come with a price. Read More
Mozilla has launched a virtual reality website this week in hopes of inspiring others to build their own.
Featuring demos including a fly-through of coastal British Columbia and a 360-degree view of the Arctic, MozVR.com is intended to offer a “native VR” Web experience, Mozilla technologists said in a statement. Mozilla will use the site to share these experiences, offer resources, and showcase work from developers in the VR Web community. “To make it easier for others to build their own VR Web sites, we are sharing [our] solutions on MozVR and GitHub, from source code, to tools, to tutorials,” the statement says.
“Virtual reality provides a sense of immersion that is typically not there when viewing content on a traditional 2D screen,” said Mozilla Engineering Director Vladimir Vukicevic, in an email. He anticipates multiple possibilities for virtual reality in the business world. “Any industry that could benefit from innovative and immersive visualization can benefit from virtual reality,” Vukicevic said. “Business data mining, medical analysis, and industrial training are all valid use cases, right alongside games and recreation.”
The navigation interface on the site allows users to move from site to site without friction. “Like a heads-up display, menus and loading indicators appear as unobtrusive layers that wrap the experience and are easily summoned or dismissed. Clicking a link becomes like teleportation,” Mozilla technologists said.
Using the site, however, requires a VR-enabled build of Firefox for the Mac or a PC, plus an Oculus Rift headset. While Rift is the initial test and development device, Mozilla wants a device-agnostic VR Web and will support additional devices soon. VR-enabled builds of Chromium also will work with the site.
Mozilla plans more code and write-ups on how it is building experiments, so developers can learn and build their own VR experiences. “Looking ahead, our UX research efforts will begin to explore interaction with classic Web content in virtual reality, from how we display 2D Web sites in virtual reality to how we perform basic interactions like inputting text and scrolling,” said Josh Carpenter, virtual reality researcher at Mozilla.
It is not a surprise that Google has strugled for a long time to improve the search of its engines.
