GDC 2019: Boundless XR for PC, cutting the cord

Qualcomm Blog – 3.20.19 (3.18.19)

At Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI), we continue to innovate and transform XR performance and portability to enrich consumer lives and deliver premium XR experiences anywhere. A few weeks ago, we announced broad ecosystem support for XR viewers, which provides immersive experiences by way of 5G smartphones tethered to a light AR glass or VR HMD. At MWC 19, we also showed a live Boundless XR over 5G demonstration, with split processing between device and edge cloud, enabling photorealistic, high-quality, immersive experiences. Today at GDC 2019, we are thrilled to announce optimizations to our Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 VR Reference Design to enable a dual-mode HMD and expand our offerings to include the PC-ecosystem with Boundless XR for PC. Our Snapdragon 845 VR Reference Design now features 60-GHz wireless providing a robust, low latency (motion to photon under 20 ms), optimized for split-processing between PC and VR HMD.

Women’s History Month with Meural

NETGEAR Blog – 3.19.18 (3.18.19)

While they haven’t always received the recognition they deserve, female artists should be appreciated as fundamental drivers of art’s evolution. Without the revolutionary contributions of household names like Mary Cassatt, Frida Kahlo, and Georgia O’Keeffe, and lesser-known artistic geniuses like Hilma af Klint, Amrita Sher-Gil, Frances Benjamin Johnston, and countless others, the world of art would not be what is it today.

We Need To Raise Girls To Embrace Bravery And Forget Perfection

Ozobot Blog – 3.19.19 (3.18.19)

From a young age, girls are trained to be modest, caring, polite, and accommodating. This is not a formal training, but rather one that society subconsciously instills in the mind of a young girl. We tend to see girls as vulnerable and fragile so, as parents and educators, we want to protect them from harm and judgement. We tenderly guide them towards activities they will excel at, and steer them away from ones that may cause them frustration.
