Yeah, I realize that ... Except it. likely, costs Apple $150-$200 -- not insignificant nor Apple's normal margins.Point is, the cost is there, and it would also be there (if not more) in any Ax Desktop GPU offering.
I am a little confused .... Desktop GPUs require/exploit dedicated Video RAM to do their thing. For example, this from the iMac 5K configuration options: Graphics Your iMac with Retina 5K display comes standard with the AMD Radeon R9 M290X with 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 video memory for superior graphics performance. For even better graphics response, configure your iMac with the AMD Radeon R9 M295X with 4GB of dedicated GDDR5 video memory. Graphics • AMD Radeon R9...
First, the Surface is actively being marketed against the iPad.Second, since we're dealing in hypotheticals about out-of-stock -- let me add mine.Computer manufacturers frequently offer special deals to merchants (especially large merchants) for holiday sales.It goes something like this: If the mfgr has a lot of inventory, it will offer to ship extra stock to the merchants -- above the merchants' normal order -- so they can satisfy expected/desired holiday demand.As...
Oh ... Oh... Oh ...Read this:http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/25/hololens/The author then describes a typical game display where much of the display's screen area is used for necessary, but distracting HUD display of feedback of status and progress numbers, time remaining, etc.Then he describes how the HUD components can be moved off the real display area and placed on virtual displays projected to the sides:He suggests that this would free up about 30 percent of the ...
The last video is unrealistic -- the girl never turns around to see how her butt looks in the dresses ...
Mmm ...Here's an interesting read from Patently Apple:http://www.patentlymobile.com/2015/01/microsoft-preparing-a-3d-manufacturing-platform.html
I agree! The biggest challenge for MS' CEO is to tear down the existing management fiefdoms and get everyone marching to the same goals ... or in the current context is it ghouls Oh, yeah!And, I suspect that when Apple can do it right they will make a self-contained headset that is no more intrusive than a normal pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses -- it will be an enhancement to these.WOT: I just found out that Stevie Nicks and Jimmy Iovine dated way back when ...Stevie...
I just started watching the entire event videos ...I have seen some short excerpt videos that are deceiving.I think that the tech has much more potential than just using 3D CAD to build things.Consider the Mars Rover application -- 3D spatial mapping and subsequent on-earth exploration of the mapped surfaces. They aren't building anything with this use of the tech. Though, I'm not sure how they do the mapping.Apple has patents on similar capabilities.Consider a similar...
When the product you are demonstrating uses, nay depends on CGI -- how do you propose making videos of the product without using CGI?Actually, in the video (posted earlier) which demonstrates building the quadcopter, they showed both:the CGI as seen through the headset worn by the designerthe CGI shown from the side as captured by a special video cameraYou could see the CGI component being applied, hanging in space between the designer and the product being assembled. No...
It appears that HoloLens may be closer to being a delivered technology than most here realize. Likely, the press event was meant to drive interest for the Build event. Let's look at the timeline: Code: 1/21/2015 4/29/2015 ??/??/?? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- HoloLens HoloLens HoloLens Press Event ...
