I’ve been thinking lately about privacy and the relationship to the business strategies of various companies, and have become fond of saying that there are two companies:  ones that sell products and ones for whom you are the product.  Google and Facebook…

Oculus + Facebook = social virtual, or a stepping stone?

I’ve made no secret that I’m not optimistic about the prospect for VR’s success as a consumer product, this time ’round, any more than I thought it was going to work for consumers last time ’round (i.e., the 80′s and 90′s, when I first played with it).…

+Blair MacIntyre Sure, POIs are not very interesting for AR, but might be the easiest and first thing to become commoditised in the platform AR widgets. The 3D rendering could be just a simple renderer for one of the simple 3D formats like ply, obj, etc. E.g. Visual Studio can now render one of those in the editor, so I guess there is some SDK support for that.
