Create augmented reality apps, no coding required

Lowering the bar for AR development will lead to a breakthrough for enterprise AR adoption.

Augmented reality for the enterprise is still such a burgeoning technology that it’s been impractical for many SMBs to create their own custom apps. Like the early days of web dev and mobile apps, the options have been hiring a specialist to go custom or using a white label.

A company called ScopeAR, which we’ve been tracking, is among the first to offer web-based AR authorship that requires no coding — though it’s a safe bet the technology is about to proliferate as mixed reality gains broader enterprise adoption.

Redefining the ecosystem of wearable

The future lies with disruptive technology. It’s set in motion. This era will witness a transformation that not only redefines the ecosystem of wearables but gestates a whole new purpose, one which is intuitive, unobtrusive and a natural extension.

Google Maps Gets 100+ AI-Powered Improvements to Help People Get Around

The new features include Live View, weather reports, and eco-friendly routes.

Google is constantly making strides to improve Google Maps. As one of the most used navigation apps, the company knows how important it is to keep things moving forward with it.

Today, Google took to The Keyword to announce a bunch of new AI-powered changes coming to Google Maps that’ll make it much easier to get from place to place. Between better indoor navigation and suggestions for eco-friendly routes, this is quite an impressive update from Google.

Google’s New Indoors Live View
The first major aspect of the update comes to Google’s Live View augmented reality feature. Now, it’ll work indoors at a wide variety of locations. While it won’t help you find the bathroom late at night in your home, it will aid you in getting around airports, transit stations, and malls, which can be some of the most difficult places to get around.

Pixel 5 ‘doubles’ GPU performance on Snapdragon 765G w/ April security patch

As we reported yesterday, Google’s April patch for the Pixel 5 includes some minor fixes as well as a big update for gamers. Now, it’s been confirmed that the patch “essentially doubles” GPU performance on the Pixel 5.

You might have missed it last year when the phone launched, but it was reported that the Pixel 5’s GPU performance lagged well behind other phones using the same Snapdragon 765G chipset. That doesn’t make a whole lot of a difference in day-to-day tasks, but it was a restriction that those playing even slightly demanding mobile games certainly felt.

To cool datacenter servers, Microsoft turns to boiling liquid

Emails and other communications sent between Microsoft employees are literally making liquid boil inside a steel holding tank packed with computer servers at this datacenter on the eastern bank of the Columbia River.

Unlike water, the fluid inside the couch-shaped tank is harmless to electronic equipment and engineered to boil at 122 degrees Fahrenheit, 90 degrees lower than the boiling point of water.

The boiling effect, which is generated by the work the servers are doing, carries heat away from laboring computer processors. The low-temperature boil enables the servers to operate continuously at full power without risk of failure due to overheating.

Inside the tank, the vapor rising from the boiling fluid contacts a cooled condenser in the tank lid, which causes the vapor to change to liquid and rain back onto the immersed servers, creating a closed loop cooling system.
