Researchers at the University of Cambridge have found that virtual reality technology can help identify Alzheimer’s symptoms with more precision than the ‘gold standard’ cognitive testing. The researchers first discovered in 2014 that the “entorhinal cortex” is one of the first regions that get affected by the disease – this could explain the reason behind old people getting lost, which is the most common symptom in the older age group. Usually, cognitive tests used in most medical clinics for Alzheimer’s diagnoses are not able to test for navigational problems and that is why the researchers decided to develop this Alzheimer’s detecting VR tech. For their study, the researchers brought 45 patients together suffering from “mild cognitive im.

The majority of consumers in the UK believe in an ‘extended reality’ (XR) future according to new research – although comparatively few have tried it out. The findings appear in a new study from SYZYGY Extended Realities, which polled more than 1,000 UK citizens on their knowledge and perceptions of virtual, augmented and mixed reality. Almost three quarters (71%) of those polled said an XR future – defined here as an umbrella term for ‘all computer-generated environments that either merge the physical and virtual, or create an entirely immersive experience for the user’ – would be of interest when purchasing a product or service.

YouTube will be using augmented reality (AR) for its users so that they can ‘virtually’ try on makeup as they are watching videos. The AR feature, which is dubbed as AR Beauty Try-On, will allow viewers to see how a shade of lipstick looks on them. They can use this feature while watching a video of their favourite creator reviewing it and explaining them the application of the product, which they can buy it simply by clicking on the product. As originally reported by CNBC , Estee Lauder-owned MAC Cosmetics has collaborated with Google’s in-house branded content platform FameBit to launch this online cosmetics campaign. Eleftheria Kouri, an AR analyst at tech advisory ABI Research, believes that the campaign will help companies increase the.

How many times have you walked to work and had to pull out your phone to check train times, or been mid-conversation with a friend and gone to look up restaurant options for a brunch you’re planning? Or have you been in a business meeting using the latest virtual tool to include Bob from Ohio and Paula in Beijing, but when it comes to discussing your latest project, that flat digital presentation just doesn’t get the message across? I believe that over the next 10 years, we’ll see significant changes in the mixed reality (MR) landscape, making our digital lives more accessible and intertwined. Imagine a portal for MR content linked directly to your glasses or lenses, where you’ll be able to find everything you need and information within yo.

With summer just around the corner, many of us will be wanting to get ourselves into shape for our upcoming holidays. But the effect of the hot weather in summer means that it can be all too easy to get back into bad habits and put fitness regimes on the backburner. The thought of being stuck in the gym, pounding the treadmill fills many of us with dread, but it needn’t, there are other, more stimulating ways to get fit. No, this isn’t referring to the latest rave or spin classes you find down at your local gym, the hottest celebrity HIIT workout, but the new wave of virtual reality fitness. Virtual reality may not be something you would automatically associate with working out, but experts believe that “in five years, there won’t be a gym

A number of industry experts in the AR/VR domain foresee convergence of the two technologies into one unique spatial computing solution. However, Digi-Capital has predicted that mobile AR, smart glasses, and VR may in fact be separated in the medium-term from a commercial point of view. AR is estimated to reach 2.5 billion installed base and $70-$75 billion revenue and VR is expected to hit over 30 million installed base and $10 billion to $15 billion revenue by 2023. Installed bases, form factors, prices, use cases, business models, and unit economics, are the likely reasons that bifurcate the two. The main challenge for mobile AR is critical use cases -- transforming user experience in a way that they care about and that could not be done.

At the recently held 2019 I/O event, Google announced that it is adding a mix of camera and augmented reality (AR) to its search engine that will generate 3D AR models as search results. For instance, users can have look at “realistic” pairs of shoes they are trying to buy online; similarly, shopping clothes online can also be previewed with one’s existing wardrobe. One can also simply put an animated shark in their living room. Google also exhibited the new technology with more examples at the keynote event. One of those examples was searching musculature, which produced model of human muscles that can be examined as a usual 3D object on the phone screen or can be overlapped on a camera feed. This allows users to see the object in real wor.

A new study conducted by Magid, a consumer-centred business strategy and research company, has revealed that both VR and AR can play a crucial role in enhancing brand perception. The study, which comprised a series of focus groups in Los Angeles and New York along with tech enthusiasts who had earlier experience of VR, revealed that while VR content was found to drive emotion, the AR content was making more sense for daily integration. The study also found that words like ‘realistic’, ‘immersive’, ‘curious’, ‘exciting’, ‘fantasy’ and ‘escape’ are the one that consumers are connecting with VR.
