From Mark:
https://www.facebook.com/oculusvr/videos/886145024820346/

We’re working on AR research. The reason we started working on VR is the technology is ready. You can build a VR headset that is affordable. And people are really using them — people use them week after week, and spend a lot of time with them and have all these different experiences. You can make that because it works with phones. Even Rift, which is a bit more expensive, can use a lot of [phone] components, and that’s why it’s hundreds of dollars and not thousands or tens of thousands of dollars.

With AR, there’s still more science questions that need to be worked out, and I’m optimistic that we’ll have the answers to that pretty soon. Within the next five or 10 years, we’ll have versions of that that are maybe where Rift is today, for AR. But, there’s no doubt in my mind that VR is easier to build and bring to a lot of people, and that’s why we’re are starting here on the product side. But we’re also researching AR very seriously, too.

The other big trend for VR is that every 10 or 15 years, there’s a new major computer paradigm. These are usually defined by their interface, and how they interact with the world. If you go back to the ‘80s, we had these big servers that you almost needed a degree to be able to use. In the ‘90s, we got desktop computers which were pretty clunky, but they were efficient enough that they made work better, so people used them primarily as a productivity tool. But they were kind of using a mouse over here to change something over there. Then we got the web, which made it so that data could flow to multiple different computers more easily. We got phones, and phones are really the first mainstream computing platform. People really like it, but that’s not the end of the line, either. There’s going to be something more.

Oculus Rift - Topics / Carmel Developer Preview is Launched

What Is the VR Web?
The VR Web is a platform comprised of APIs and technologies that enable the creation of VR experiences for the web. VR Web content can include both immersive 3D scenes built with the WebGL and WebVR APIs and enhanced 2D web experiences running in VR. Everything that’s possible today on a desktop or mobile browser should also be possible in VR.

What Is the WebVR API, and How Do I Use it?
WebVR is an evolving API, with early implementations in browsers with different versions and capabilities. Recently, a configuration of the API has crystallized that most major browser vendors believe can reach general availability in mid-2017. The Carmel Developer Preview targets this configuration. All of our samples and documentation explain how to use this version of the API and also where we diverge from it and why.

VR - General News & Discussion / Gatebox - Virtual Home Robot
« on: December 19, 2016, 01:02:01 PM »
Gatebox is the world-first virtual home robot with which you can spend
your everyday life with your favorite characters.
To celebrate the Gatebox special advance sale on December, 14th, 2016,
This video showcasing the special charm that Gatebox can bring
forth throughout a single day.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkcKaNqfykg


http://gatebox.ai


Design
Always by your side
We designed it to feel like it's right beside
you in your everyday life.

Size
Big enough for you to be able to
put right beside you

We designed the Gatebox with the underside being
the perfectly compact size of an A4 piece of paper,
for the purpose of being able to
naturally place on an ordinary desk or table.
Place it discreetly beside you anytime,
and in various places within the room.


Form
A shapened form

So that you can feel like the main character is
always present, no matter where it is in the room,
we removed all unnecessary thrills from it's appearance,
and created a refined, neo-futuristic form.

Interface
For the purpose of an interface
between 2 people

It has been refined to operation,
not through a keyboard or controller, but only
a simple, touch button interface centered around
communication with the character.

Even if you become seperated,
it will still be right there
We are developing an app linked to
Gatebox that allows you connect to
your character whenever and wherever you are.
Development is currently underway on
a Gatebox link app to allow you to connect with
it whenever and from wherever.

We included every component necessary
for living together with the character of your choice
in the first model of Gatebox.
With small scale projection technology and
a diverse range of sensors, the character that comes to life
within Gatebox recognises it's owners movements, and moves automatically.

AR vs VR vs (Augmented Virtual Reality or Mixed Reality or Hyper Reality)

Augmented Reality

AR is the integration of digital information with the user's environment in real time. In the AR technology, the user is aware about the real world. The digital information is presented on top the real world object to help the user with digital information. Perfect example will be GPS navigation on the road while walking through the streets.

Virtual Reality

VR is an artificial environment created through computer software and presented to the user to accept it as a real time environment. VR is experienced through sight and sound. With the VR technology, one can experience any type of virtual content or location directly into their eyes by simulating the environment using 3D content or VR video.

Augmented Virtual Reality or Mixed Reality or Hyper Reality

As the name implies, this is a technology mixed with AR and VR. In this technology the user can interact with the real world object as like the AR and also the real world object can interact with visual content. For example: The user can a boxing with visual opponent. The user's movements are tracked through sensors and the visual opponent can respond to the user in the real world.

Mixed Reality device example: Microsoft hololens.
