Eye contact in VR 👀, more humanoid robots incoming 🤖, Xiaomi's AR glasses 👓, and more!
Welcome back to Augmented Rarity, can’t believe it’s been 19th weeks already! Here’s what happened in the XR and AI industry recently 👇
Project Cambria, Meta’s new headset will feature eye tracking, so you’ll be able to make eye contact and mimic your face expressions in VR. Just hoping the avatars are not creepy.
Gone are the days when Xiaomi only made mobiles. The Tesla bot got a strong competitor, CyberOne, Xiaomi’s humanoid robot 🤖
Using AI not only for making art but also for moodboarding, sketching and getting first renders in my last YouTube video (spam lol 💜. As usual, using Dalle2 and Midjourney. I know Stable Diffusion is trending now but for this I still prefer Dalle and MJ.
And it is not only that it makes robots, but Xiaomi has also started to make AR glasses 👓.
Snap to fire 20% of its employees since today. The reason? Its stock has fallen 79% this year as advertiser spending has slowed. I guess that cute selfie drone was a cry for help? Or not, because rather than market it so much to sell so many, they just targeted a few countries.
