The Inquisitr News: The Future Of Gaming? This Is Magic Leap.

Wow my mind is slightly blown, the realism of that gun in hand, it looks smooth and fluid. It certainly seems a cut above the rest with what's it's demoing...keep it up I need this in my life.

This is pretty brilliant. With this your phone tablet and home computer could all run from your wrist. The screen size varying but the cost of the screens is minimal because they are just a receiver from your hub on your wrist.

In the seamless future of ubiquitous computing. Our content will follow us where we go jumping from screen to screen as we go. With this you could start on your 'tablet' screen it would switch to 'phone' as you leave, pickup on screen in your self driving car, back to your phone, as your walk to your office before jumping to your screen at your office.

A shake up like this is what the industry needs if its this, if its something like Ara or something else entirely remains to be seen. But this is good it will be interesting to see what it looks like and what it can do when it comes to market.
Today, the smartphone is the center of our digital lives. Does it have to be?

Vox.com: Why Google's rumored ride-sharing service should terrify Uber and Lyft. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwxYXo9ho

Well its not like I expect this to permeate British culture anytime soon but this is brilliant and does make sense.

Google has self driving cars, who would own one...they are prohibitively expensive and this means not having to worry about that. Taxi services are generally short distances within the city so the 30mp/h speed that they are currently tested at is no problem.

And honestly I think article overlooks what Google can leverage with 'Waze'. If you know where all the people and all the traffic is. Then its not hard to imagine checking your route on Waze, getting an a Google Now notification to tell you when you need to leave by and asking if your would like to book a ride. A few minutes later a notification ping...and you are informed your car is waiting. If traffic builds up on your route to work...Waze knows and your car can automatically redirect.

And with all those cards in its hands...is Google really that far behind Lyft and Uber...perhaps, but only because it hasn't actually entered the fray. It's hard to imagine that if their self driving cars get road approval and they get the business model right that Google won't leave Lyft and Uber in the dust.

Well played Microsoft, they are actually really taking steps in the right direction IMO. People keep trying to convince me and others about how VR is the future and Facebook's buying Oculus would spur it on. But my thoughts have always been, since I first heard of it, conceived it and then saw it. No no no, screw VR, AR is the future. I think this is a very promising step forward for it. Microsoft showed off its illumiroom tech 2 years ago and we were a little underwhelmed by its holodeck aspirations. It did keep working on it though and now this.

You see with VR the real world becomes a problem making real world movement an issue, with this, smaller, refined, implanted as a chip. You could walk around applying skins to your life. Your dull drab apartment building actually showing off modern works of art.

But everyone could see it however they bent reality to their will, where someone might have a whitewashed wall displaying a Monet I may choose to see a beloved memory of Old Trafford. Anything could be possible.

But that could be weird and cause problems with work right? Wrong, potential to work from anywhere is obvious turn your home onto an office and fire up Skype with the rest of office using their voice for their avatar sat at their desk. And for jobs where you need to be at a workplace, you quite simply lock in the room plans so that people operating on that WiFi see this building this way.

OK so it never will...but indulge for a moment and imagine if Google and Microsoft could find a way to play nice...Imagine. Google with all its learned from Glass along with the Tattoo and Pill computer projects within ATAP combined with project tango for real world environment mapping and that kind of leap...(leap motion should totally be on board) to fully Augmented Reality might not be so far away.

So I'm saying it now...don't shrug this off, don't think, oh Microsoft why do you still try when nobody wants to be your friend anymore. This will be big...and they look pretty cool I mean given what it is.

CNET: Microsoft's HoloLens explained: How it works and why it's different. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIw1L7z0yA
Has Microsoft suddenly pushed us into the age of "Star Trek" and "Minority Report"? For those confused about what's actually going on with the company's new head-mounted gadget, here's the rundown.

Sharing this for all the dog lovers out there or anyone willing to help. My friend Balto needs a new hip so he can live the best life a puppy can live.

So we're looking to raise anything we can to pay the costly bill. So if you can just take a moment to read the attached and if you can find your way to helping, anything is appreciated.

Thank you and hopefully with everybody's help we'll have Balto bouncing around and enjoying being a pup in no time
 
This is my little sisters dog Balto,  he is her 11 month old Rottweiler/Husky cross & is one of the most happy & playful dogs you could ever wish to meet! He has a brilliant personality & all he wants to do is play with everyone & anything he meets!

Sadly, 5 months ago he was diagnosed with hip dysplasia. Since then he has been having weekly hydrotherapy sessions & we have been doing everything possible to help with his condition, however his most recent x-rays show that he needs a hip replacement. Up to now his treatment has been covered by the insurance but due to the high cost of the hydrotherapy session & recent specialist fees this is due to run out very soon!

All this beautiful pup wants to do is play, he has such a great spirit & you couldn't wish for a more loving companion!
Any amount no matter how small will be greatly appreciated! :)
Please help us raise enough money for his hip replacement surgery so that he can live the life that he deserves!
Please share too....
Look at his face, them gorgeous eyes!
Thank you all :) xx

The Universe is an amazing place...and those clever Scientists deserve their fair share of praise too. Stuff like this really intrigues me and although it takes some reading and rereading sometimes to understand...its so worth it.
For the first time, astronomers have watched, over and over again, a star blow itself up, which may help them better understand mysteries like dark matter.

+Hugo Barra I always take an interest when a Googler sets off on a new venture with a tech company. I remember seeing the announcement that you were leaving to a fledgling company looking to make waves in a world of Samsung and Apple dominance.

I remember adding you on G+ and thinking watch this guy/space. Xiaomi has, I think, taken everyone by surprise...what you have achieved in less than 18 months has shaken up the mobile world.

I have just seen a review for the MiBox Mini...& I want one...all the way from the UK...the world is ready...there is proof popping up everywhere with lower cost flagships springing up all over the place.

Spread the love XD. But in all seriousness it is only writing this that it is really dawning on me how far Xiaomi has come in such a short space of time. But I guess I'm just hoping that same rapid progression starts working its way West in 2015.
