AIs that make text to video 🎬, Meta's new VR headset leaked 🥽, and more! ✨
Hi again! Welcome back to Augmented Rarity 💚. Let’s begin with this week’s selection 👇
🥽 Extended Reality
Project Cambria, Meta’s new baby, will be out in a month as Meta Quest pro! 🥽 At least this is what this leaked video by a worker that found the device ‘left alone’ in a hotel room shows us. If you asked me, I’m not convinced with the hotel room story, neither with the aesthetics but we will confirm it on October 11th at Meta Connect. Save the date! And if you don’t know much about this new headset, here’s an article with all the speculations about it so far.
A film that comes with an AR experience? Yes, and Disney did it for Remembering. XR is finally coming to the film industry! Before this, what was the mainstream offering? I remember when we got to decide the storytelling for Bandersnatch (that interactive Black Mirror episode that won an Emmy!🔥).
Obviously, I did a quick search on Google to find more interactive (mainstream) films. Not XR, but pretty interesting as a case study beyond the AR filters that most companies are using to promote their products (like the one that HBO did with Snap for the 'House of Dragon’ premiere this past August 🐉).
🤖 Artificial Intelligence
If text to image wasn’t good enough already, text to video will be a reality soon 🎬. But don’t get too excited just yet because for now we can only join the waitlist and hope that the product is as good as the promo video 🤫
Picsart launched a tool to create your own font with AI 🖌. Which apparently happened in March, but tbh I just found out 🙈 so it is new(ish). I haven’t tried it because it’s a premium feature and I’m quite against these tools that replace designers (says someone who has been using AI to help her design faster lol)
Remember my Notion template to write better prompts? Well, here’s an AI that helps you write better prompts 🤯. It works pretty well because it "forces" you to be more specific while providing suggestions.
Aaaand no, no direct YouTube spam this week because I’m taking a short break but I’ll be back 👀. Meanwhile, here’s my channel 🤓
As always, thank you so much for reading, see you next Wednesday! 💚
