Wait, Spotlight Stories still exist? I forgot about them since they made them not compatible with the MXPE.

Hi,my name is Mi Li,I am the director of Sent from Lightchaser Animation Studios.
,a 360 degree animated short film (here is the youtube link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDPgRqIRCvg ).Which is also recently accepted by Siggraph 2016 VR village.
I love every short film from you.I recently funded my own VR animation studio in Beijing and I really want to know how can I use Story Development Kit in my future films,or may I be one of the tester to use it?Thank you!

My Young Innovator Grandson is desperate to get hold of a small piece of Project Jacquard fabric but ATAP seem impossible to contact directly. Who can he call / e-mail / write to who will respond to his contact?

Our hands are fast and precise instruments, but so far, we haven’t been able to capture their sensitivity and accuracy in user interfaces. However, there’s a natural vocabulary of hand movements we’ve learned from using familiar tools like smartphones, and Project Soli aims to use these motions to control other devices. For example, your hand could become a virtual dial to control volume on a speaker, or a virtual touchpad to browse a map on a smartwatch screen.

To make our hands self-contained interface controls, the team needed a sensor that could capture submillimeter motions of overlapping fingers in 3D space. Radar fits all these requirements, but the necessary equipment was just a little…big.

So the Project Soli team created a gesture radar small enough to fit in a wearable device. It’s a new category of interaction sensor, running at 60GHz; one that can capture motions of your fingers at resolutions and speeds that haven’t been possible before—up to 10,000 frames per second. To get there, the team had to reinterpret traditional radar, which bounces a signal from an object and provides a single return ping. From a hardware and computation perspective, this would have been challenging to recreate on a small scale. So to capture the complexity of hand movements at close range, Soli illuminates the whole hand with a broad radar beam, and estimates the hand configuration by analyzing changes in the returned signal over time.

The team built the first prototype, a 5x5mm piece of silicon, in just 10 months. They’re working on finalizing the development board (prototype) and software API for release to developers later this year. Watch Ivan Poupyrev, Technical Project Lead, talk about the project at I/O here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpbWQbkl8_g&feature=youtu.be&t=10m15s

You can reach out to the team at projectsoli@google.com if you’d like to get involved. Watch the video to meet the team and learn more.  #ATAP #ProjectSoli

I was super excited for the Ara and have been following it for years now. even started making plans to hit a Puerto Rico when they were going to get sold out there. But now I'm not so sure. The whole idea was that it was going to be modular and being able to tear down and replace parts as they needed to be replaced and now that doesn't seem to be the case. I'll wait and see what finally ends up on the market, but it sounds like my dream phone is going to be just another phone with a gimmick. I'm still excited to see what comes out for the modules and hopefully Ara takes off and the next version becomes what was originally intended. I'm curious as to why the decision was made to remove so much of the original idea. Was it cost or manufacturing requirements? Was it patent issues?

Hi, I'm interested in project vault for security use. There has been no info on it since June 2015. How far away from the finished product is ATAP? How much is it estimated to cost? How does one become a tester?
